Part of the nature of the beast of auto repair is having large amounts of parts to dispose of.
Almost all of the pieces and parts for motor vehicles that we service here at Saul’s Automotive come in a cardboard box with a metal component inside. All of that cardboard and paper gets recycled through Waste Management. All of the steel, aluminum, copper or any other heavy metal objects that come through, we personally recycle ourselves here at Western Metals. By being located in Greenwood Village, the south side of the Denver area, right near an industrial recycling center, we’re able to efficiently and cost-effectively recycle all the materials that come through here. We service so many motor vehicles that this is our pile form the first four days of the week yet to be recycled.
Here at Saul’s Automotive, we send over 25 thousand pounds through the recycling center that become new Pepsi and Coke cans for you to drink out of every day. With that volume of steel coming through here, that literally means we are equivalently replacing 10 vehicles’ worth of components every year with the parts that come through our doors.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to service your vehicle and at the same time allowing us the volume accordingly, so that we can properly recycle, dispose of and maintain the environment around us. Because Denver has very strict standards about environmental protection acts and how to properly dispose of everything associated with motor vehicle servicing, every piece, and the part that comes through our doors goes out to the proper venue. Whether it be the motor oil, transmission fluid, gear oil that gets disposed of and re-burned by recyclers for waste heat or the brake fluid and glycol coolants that get recycled to the fire department to be used in their cooling systems. Literally, not one drop goes to waste.
