Georgia body shop decides to go ‘green’ with waterborne, composting, and recycling

Specialty Paint and Body in Athens, GA, recently converted its painting system to waterborne paint techniques.

The use of waterborne paints lessens the release of volatile organic compounds that evaporate from liquids such as paint, paint thinner and gasoline.

Specialty Paint and Body already manages their environmental impact by composting shredded office paper, and recycling most plastic and metal car parts, paper and cardboard. It also reuses plastic sheeting to protect car parts during the repair process.
