We believe that we can ALL make a difference through environmental stewardship. SafeWay Tire & Auto Center is committed to helping make our St. Charles, MO neighborhood and the world a better place for our future generations. If we all join together, we can make a difference!
Here’s how we at SafeWay Tire & Auto Center’s do our part to be GREEN:
- We recycle oil, coolant, transmission fluids, power steering fluids and brake fluids.

- We recycle parts washer water.
- We have reduced our use of CFO aerosol cans to a minimum.
- We recycle used batteries.
Just one quart of oil leaking into groundwater can contaminate as much as 250,000 gallons of drinking water. The automotive repair industry must take our share of the responsibility to dispose of waste properly. The EPA states that motor oil is a leading source of hazardous waste.
Automobile owners should be aware that car batteries that contain lead, acid, and plastic are a threat to our environment as well as to human health. SafeWay is doing all we can to conscientiously recycle and dispose of batteries in a safe & efficient manner. Proper recycling concerns us all.
SafeWay also responsibly recycles:
- Metal from car parts
These hazardous materials are stored in enclosed areas and then disposed of in an environmentally acceptable way. SafeWay has proper spill containment and cleanup procedures for hazardous chemicals and products.
SafeWay makes sure that live plants are used to eradicate vocs from the air. We use low-flush commodes as well as non-aerosol cleaners.
Our offices use paperless fax machines and effective duplex printing when possible.
We use every possible means to save energy and water while being good stewards of our environment, products and services.
