In the automotive repair industry, it can be a challenge to keep up with environmentally safe standards. Beckley Automotive has been using green recycling tactics for over 10 years. The shop was rebuilt in downtown Des Moines about twelve years ago, and Steve Beckley knew he needed to be environmentally responsible and find ways to keep costs down, too.

That’s why all of the brake fluid and coolant is collected for pick up and recycling. Both of these substances can be flammable in certain circumstances, and both can be deadly to animals. But Beckley’s doesn’t stop there! When the shop was built, Steve made sure to create a safe way to dispose of used engine oil. That’s why all the used oil collected during service appointments heats the whole building, including the shop and the offices. This keeps the oil out of the landfills, rivers and streams and helps lower overhead costs, which translates to savings for the customer.

Whether performing an Audi wheel alignment, installing Buick brake pads and shoes, or a providing a general Volkswagen engine tune-up, Beckley Automotive is constantly working to leave a small eco footprint while providing outstanding service. Come see our green recycling techniques in action!
