Select Auto and Truck Repair is the first and only GREEN AUTO REPAIR SHOP in Essex County ! Which is recognized by an association of several government agencies and private automotive organizations through the New Jersey Green Automotive Repair Program.

Trenton, NJ, March 3, 2010 - Select Towing and Auto Repair received the first "green" certification for an Essex County automotive repair shop through New Jersey Green Auto Repair Program (NJGARP). The program was created on Earth Day last year to reward automotive repair facilities in New Jersey that practice and use environmentally friendly technologies in their businesses. NJGARP is a partnership between AAA New Jersey, the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers (NJCAR) and the New Jersey Gasoline C-Store Automotive Association (NJGCA), in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), promoting "green" practices in New Jersey.

Select Auto and Truck Repair is the only auto repair shop in West Orange and Essex County to carry the label "New Jersey Green Automotive Facility." "As a progressive auto repair shop, this step was only natural to us," said Select Towing and Auto Repair owner John McElroy. "We also understand we need to accommodate our customers' concerns and environmental awareness, and this was a good way to promote it, " he added. "In the past decade both consumer and businesses have become more environmentally conscious than ever before, and being able to embrace the green movement can tremendously benefit one's home and business alike."

Select received its certification just in time to celebrate Earth Day, April 23, and is focused on continuing to provide "green" services to its customers through its dedication and resources. NJGARP is confident more automotive facilities will join Select in their pursuit for a "greener" New Jersey.
