ECO FRIENDLY AUTO REPAIR
Vaughan Auto Service is an ecofriendly auto repair business in London, Ontario. The protection and preservation of our local ecology and environment is very important to us. To this end, we have adopted “green” policies and procedures into our daily auto repair processes to help reduce our impact on our environment.
Whether it’s in our auto repair and service bays or within our offices, Vaughan Auto Service employs the most current recycling methods and continue to educate ourselves so that we can remain environmentally-conscious. Together, we can positively affect our environment and help contribute to a greener planet.
Some of the programs Vaughan Auto Service is involved with include:
Ontario Tire Stewardship Program
Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) is an Industry Funding Organization (IFO) incorporated under Ontario’s Waste Diversion Act, to implement and operate the Used Tires Program. This province-wide scrap tire solution for On-road and Off-road tires supplied into the Ontario market, will divert scrap tires away from burning and landfilling to 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) processing and uses. Launched on September 1, 2009, the program will eliminate the “disposal fee” that consumers currently pay to get rid of their old tires – whether or not they are buying new ones — making it easy and free for Ontarians to get their old tires recycled by dropping them off at registered Collectors across Ontario.
Ontario Environmental Stewardship Program
Stewardship Ontario was established in 2002 under the Waste Diversion Act 2002 to develop, implement and operate a waste diversion program for paper materials and packaging wastes and, more recently, municipal hazardous and special wastes. The goal of the program is to promote the reduction, reuse and recycling of those materials managed under our programs.
