Did you know B&R Auto Wrecking is a Certified Automotive Recycler (CAR) and also Gold Seal Certified through the Automotive Recyclers Association? That means you can trust the quality of the used auto parts from B&R but you can also feel good about supporting a company that actively cares for the environment through our Green Recycled Parts program.
What are Green Recycled Parts? These used auto parts are harvested from end-of-life vehicles using environmentally responsible processes to dismantle, clean, inspect, inventory, and store these replacement parts for cars and trucks. By purchasing Green Recycled Parts, you help to protect the environment in significant ways!
- Purchasing recycled auto parts saves and estimated 80 million barrels of oil annually, which is needed to produce new auto parts.
- More than 12 million vehicles are reclaimed and recycled each year in North America.
- Purchasing recycled auto parts helps keep auto parts out of landfills since over 80% of a vehicle (by weight) is recyclable.
- The auto recycling industry in North America safely reclaims and reuses over 10 million gallons of gasoline, oil, and other vehicle fluids each year.
This environmentally-friendly recovery and reuse of quality, used auto parts makes auto recycling the ultimate "green," environmental choice. As the official Green Recycled Parts website states, "No other product on earth is recycled more than an automobile. Not only does it keep a flood of dangerous toxins from being released into our ground and water, it prevents unnecessary use of valuable landfills. And by reducing the need for new parts to be manufactured, you'll be preserving scarce natural resources and cutting down on the resulting pollution."
Even though B&R Auto Wrecking has grown from one location in Corvallis, Oregon, to the current 17 locations in Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and California, we maintain the same environmental quality standards according to the CAR and Gold Seal specifications at each location. Recently, Brian Perlenfein, B&R Senior Business Advisor was quoted in the August 2017 issue of the Automotive Recyclers Association magazine, Automotive Recycling, "Oregon is widely known as a state with a strong environmental commitment. B&R has taken this seriously for decades. “We’ve been environmental-conscious forever,” Perlenfein says. “My dad and I watch [environmental policies] closely because we believe it’s easier to stay up on it than to remediate it.” The credit for the company’s excellent environmental record – never a violation, he says, goes to the employees. “They know what we need to do and keep us in good standing.”"
