GearHeads strives to be as environmentally friendly as we can.
These are some of the items we try to help the environment with:
* Recycle cardboard, paper, plastic
* Recycle all metals
* We recycle our bicycle tires
* Use environmentally friendly lubricants and cleaning solutions in the shop whenever we can.
*All of our shopping bags are OXO-Biodegradable, at a substantial additional cost.
*We also recycle and reuse as many donated and unclaimed bicycles to be re-conditioned and donated to groups throughout Renfrew county. Such-as the 14 bike program in conjunction with PAN-RC.
*Ink toners are all recycled through local high school to aid in their fund raising for sports.
*All waste shop fluids and cleaners are brought to the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery centre for recycling and proper disposal whenever recycling is not possible
*This equates to a substantial cost increase but we believe that it is necessary to do anything we can to better our environment for all of us.
