Pull-A-Part earns Keep Georgia Beautiful Award

Pull-A-Part, an Atlanta based automotive used parts retailer, earned first place honors in the Waste Reduction and Recycling category at the 2006 Keep Georgia Beautiful awards banquet held at the Georgia Aquarium in October.

“It is especially important for Georgia businesses to do what we can to preserve our environment for future generations,” said Steve Levetan, Pull-A-Part vice president. “It is an honor to be recognized for those efforts.”

The Waste Reduction and Recycling category recognizes the efforts of businesses and other organizations to minimize the impact of waste and promote responsible waste handling in the community. Pull-A-Part was formally acknowledged for its efforts to keep abandoned vehicles off neighborhood streets, create new systems to ensure safe drainage and for recycling all fluids and hazardous materials remaining in the vehicles it processes.

Based on recycling an average of 2,000 tons of automobiles each month at the two Georgia locations, Pull-A-Part annually prevents 2.9 million pounds of waste from entering Georgia landfills. Additionally, each location recycles approximately 50,000 gallons of oil, gasoline, brake fluid, transmission fluid and antifreeze each year.
