Last year we recycled 85%
of all the solid waste we generated!
We recycle coffee capsules, wiper blades, wire harnesses, brake lathe shavings, waste oil, used oil filters, waste antifreeze, scrap metal, scrap tires, batteries including lithium coin batteries, bumper covers, bulk plastic, used toner cartridges, and paint thinner
Recently we were honored by the City of Gaithersburg and received the 2021 Environmental award for our continued achievements on reducing our environmental footprint. We have now received this award for 14 years in a row.
Being Green Means Going Beyond Recycling
We are committed to establish and maintain an Environmental Management System (EMS) that goes beyond simply meeting environmental laws and regulations, but extends to everyday practices and business decisions.
All of our dealerships are fueled by renewable energy sources, such as Wind and Solar. Our solar canopy, installed in May 2019, is believed to be the largest solar canopy east of the Mississippi River.
We are the first dealership group in North America to become ISO 14001 certified, the global standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) as well as an EPA Green Power Partner Member of the EPA Green Power Leadership Club and a long-standing member of the Clean Energy Partnership in Maryland.
