At Douglas County AutoCare, we take pride in being a certified green garage. We encourage drivers in Douglasville, GA , Lithia Springs, GA, Hiram, GA , and surrounding areas to positively impact the environment by going green and recycling their old automotive parts and fluids with us.

Our Green Garage

We learned firsthand that going green isn't only good for the environment, it's smart for business, too. As you can image, operating our 12-bay shop involves a lot of costs. Turning into a green garage helped us and our customers save.

We have:

  • Waste Oil Heaters: With our two waste oil heaters, we keep our shop at a comfortable 70 degrees while spending between $15 - $50 per month.
  • Energy-efficient Lights: We've added more light to our service bays, helping our technicians to never miss a thing during repairs while cutting our energy consumption by almost 56 percent.

We encourage all AutoCare centers to make the change to green. The NAPA GreenCare program makes shops like our own more efficient and environmentally friendly. The savings in the long run also mean we can offer our customers better deals and prices on services.

What do we recycle?


  • Motor Oil
  • Oil filters
  • Tires
  • Antifreeze

We recycle automotive fluids and rubber and properly dispose of any item that cannot be recycled. Before you discard your tire in a rubbish heap or exchange your old oil for a new oil, give us a visit to continue the life cycle of your unneeded items.


How much of a car or truck is recyclable?


While it ultimately depends on the type of vehicle you are driving, most modern vehicles are at least 85% recyclable. In fact, some automotive manufacturers hope to reach 90% levels in the near future.

Because the technology exists to reuse and repurpose so many parts in an automobile, you have the potential to greatly impact the environment by going green with your vehicle at our repair shop. We're always growing and look forward to offering you even more automotive recycling services in the future.


How do we recycle different automotive parts?


Green Repair Shop in Lithia Springs, GA

There are many different parts to your vehicle and a variety of ways to recycle them. For example, we can turn:

  • Automotive Fluids into Heat: Your vehicle’s old oil and other automotive fluids can be used to provide heat in our shop.
  • Anti-Freeze into Anti-Freeze: We send antifreeze to special recycling plants that break the fluid down into its original components. Once broken, the elements are turned into anti-freeze again to help another vehicle run.
  • Tires into Tires & Material: If your used tires aren’t worn greatly, they can be retreaded and used by another driver. If your tires are completely finished, they can be sent to a recycling plant and turned into road material, building material, or even art.

Don't burn your tires or casually discard your old oil. Help us create a healthy, sustainable environment when you bring your different automotive parts to our shop.
