In 2012 Herzog-Meier became a member of Green Shield Partners, an organization of automotive service companies
that are dedicated to creating a more environmentally-friendly automotive
industry. By adhering to environmentally-conscious standards and adopting
recycling business practices, Herzog-Meier received
certification of being a Green Shield Partner.
Earning a Green Shield Partner certification validates our efforts of providing eco-friendly services to our customers when it comes to their automobiles.
Here are some examples of what our business does to be a Green Shield Partner:
Recycle used motor oil into energy or new lubricants
Recycle our used antifreeze and keep it out of our storm drains or waterways
Buy antifreeze that meets ASTM specifications but uses reclaimed ethylene glycol
Keep oil filters out of landfills and put them into recycled products like rebar
Reuse or recycle solvent from our parts washers or used water-based solutions
Keep oil out of the storm drains by servicing our oil water separators regularly
As a Green Shield Partner, we are part of an elite group in our industry. In fact, in a survey of automotive service locations, only 14 percent of those surveyed employ the environmental practices to qualify them as a Green Shield Partner.
This partnership proves that we care about your vehicle and the environment! If you have questions or want to learn more, call us today at (503) 644-9121.
