We Are Green

Automotive Recycling

At Reid’s Automotive Recycling, we are serious about being environmentally conscious in everything we do. We’re committed to lowering the impact of cars on the environment by implementing the highest standards in dismantling, processing, and preparing resale parts. You could say we’ve taken OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts to a higher level and made them Green. But Green isn’t only in what we sell…it’s in everything we do.

Recovering and Reusing

By recovering and reusing auto parts and recycling waste material, we help reduce the impact that manufacturing has on the environment.

Code of Practice

Vehicles that have reached their end of life are safely processed at our government-registered facility using procedures in accordance with the Code of Practice for the Automotive Recycling Industry of BC.

Green it. Lean it.

Reid’s has adopted a zero-waste mindset in all areas of the business, including daily operations, packaging, supplies and water use. We keep this mindset in the forefront of our plans for facility and equipment upgrades too. Green it. Lean it.
