BFRC has chosen to voluntarily install non-toxic steel wheel weights instead of lead weights.
Our effort to voluntarily switch to steel wheel weights is a great example of the environmental dedication of BFRC and our parent company, Bridgestone Americas," Sheerin added.
Lead wheel weights removed from vehicles at BFRC service centers are collected and properly recycled.
By offering new services like the environmentally friendly oil change, and continuing to make our traditional services as eco-conscious as possible, BFRC can continue to meet the needs of the customers and communities we serve.
Throughout the country, BFRC store locations recycle tires, car batteries, oil and oil filters, antifreeze, Freon, and many other automotive products.
Using a legacy dial-up network, BFRC found that the slow dial connection speeds could not support much-needed applications that would generate a continuous flow of point-of-sale and company information.
BFRC is committed to providing a positive customer experience, and the GoRemote Branch Office solution enhances that experience by enabling us to effectively deliver the necessary applications in our stores," said Terry Reedy, chief financial officer of BFRC.
