Part of the reason this project was so fun to do is because the business owners, Jay and Larry Brosten, believe in what they do. They want to show the world that automobile recycling is one of the greenest things you can do. We seriously considered getting the project LEED certified, because it certainly could have qualified. They believe in salvaging everything out of an end of life auto, from donating the contents of the trunk, draining all fluids, filtering and bottling the windshield wiper fluid and antifreeze for resale, and even using the waste oil to heat 4 buildings on the property with Clean Burn furnaces. They are a platinum level Certified Green Business from the Green Business League, and received the Green Business of the Year for 2010 award.
Design Studio C, Ltd. worked with the Brostens through the entire zoning approval process through construction.
