CAR Certification

Certified Auto Recyclers 
Many professional automotive recyclers use a certification program to attain and maintain compliance with environmental, safety and transportation rules applicable to salvage facilities. The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) Certified Auto Recyclers (CAR) program sets a standard of excellence as the path to compliance.

Members of the Ohio Auto and Truck Recyclers Association utilize the ARA CAR program as a resource. Facilities that have achieved certification communicate to the marketplace that they have successfully undergone a comprehensive assessment and their processes and organization meet defined standards. 

Regulatory Agency
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is a trusted leader and environmental steward using innovation, quality service and public involvement to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all Ohioans. Ohio EPA's goal is to protect the environment and public health by ensuring compliance with environmental laws and demonstrating leadership in environmental stewardship.
