Environmental Attitude

Environmental Attitude

awards_150wWe at DME Auto Service are very concerned about our environment and the future of our community and are very aggressive in our practices to have something for our future generations to enjoy and nurture. We stay in compliance with and follow all federal, state, and local environmental regulations and adhere to the proper selection, handling, use, and disposal of the materials which we both use for and remove from your vehicle during the course of repairs or maintenance procedures. We care about maintaining a clean and safe environment within our workplace for our staff and we believe that our customers appreciate this as well. It has been proven that this helps insure a healthier and safer environment for everyone.
