A November 28, 2016 article in Tire Business told us the following: “Women in Auto Care awarded $60,000 in scholarships to twenty high school and post-secondary students recently, including one $10,000 scholarship to Summer Miller, a student in auto technology at Brookhaven College in Decatur, TX. Formerly known as the Car Care Council Women’s Board (WB), has been bestowing scholarships to young women seeking careers in the auto trades for over 14 years. It publicized the 2016 winners at a press conference during the new Auto Aftermarket Parts Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas. Applicants for these scholarships are graded on various criteria, including: essay; activities/volunteering, etc.; grades/GPA; class performance; financials; and industry obligations.

Ms. Miller was granted the Kathleen Schmatz Scholarship, named after the former president and CEO of the Auto Care Association.  This scholarship included a trip to the 2017 AAPEX. Ms. Miller says that the scholarship allows her to focus more on her classes & grades without worrying about tuition. She felt blessed that Women in Auto Care saw her potential and was willing to assist her to achieve goals.  This is Ms. Miller’s 2nd industry scholarship. In 2015 she earned a $2,500 scholarship from Federal-Mogul Motorparts.

The application process for the 2017 scholarships is new available at their website.  The deadline is in March 2017. Those applying must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 or better. High school applicants must be in their senior year, planning on attending an ASE-certified, post-secondary auto technology program, while post-secondary tech applicants must have already completed 1-year at an ASE-certified, auto technology program.” The complete story is available at this link.

Patrick Healy of NBC Los Angeles informed us of the following auto related story: “Recently a Diamond Bar couple was victimized by brazen and quite speedy driveway thieves. Security camera footage shows two suspects jump out of an SUV, roll underneath a parked Honda CRV, remove components with precious metals and take off. The precious metals — including platinum & sometimes even gold are needed by a piece of emissions control equipment that has been standard equipment in vehicles since the 1970s — the catalytic converter.

Recycling the metals from each of these units can produce scrap value of up to $200, and has made converters a hot item for thieves. The victim named Katia discovered the theft later in the day when she started the vehicle’s engine – and heard a much louder exhaust system with the absence of the converter. The theft happened at 3:30AM; she heard from another resident nearby that half an hour later, thieves had then tried to remove the converter from another car, but he yelled, and they fled.

Both made incident reports with the LA County Sheriff’s Walnut Station; in many households garages are used for storage, and cars are parked out in the driveway. The driveway where the theft occurred was unlit, thus the security video didn’t show the faces of the culprits, or the vehicle’s license plate number. Since the theft, the couple installed a motion sensor light in the driveway. Katia and her neighbor both took their Hondas to the same garage, Vtec Auto Repair. Owner Oliver Lu says he sees many cars from which the catalytic converters were stolen. For Katia’s car, the insurance adjuster estimated the loss as exceeding $2,700. The insurance policy had comprehensive coverage, but the policy holder is still responsible for paying a deductible. The degree of difficulty in removing catalytic converters can vary a bit among different car models. In this Honda, the converter is fastened in place with five bolts that are easily accessed from underneath with a socket wrench. Others require that the exhaust pipe is severed and some separate the converter into (3) separate components, one of which is reachable only by opening the hood. The catalytic converter in a V6 model Honda is particularly well-protected, and is built into the manifold itself.” The complete story is available here.

Did you know that the majority of the materials that comprise your car can be reclaimed, repurposed or remanufactured?

We are back with another installment discussing the recycling solution for using shredded car tires for construction projects, which is based on a Calrecycle 2016 TDA report: “All contractors and subcontractors should understand the basics of working with TDA prior to beginning. Information on prior completed projects and how TDA was used can help the management staff plan and complete the install without complications or delays. Based on management’s experience, once they’ve worked with TDA, they are typically comfortable doing so. The advantages of it include the following: The materials can be moved with conventional construction equipment.  It’s produced from waste tires and (supposedly) cleaned with fewer fines than rock or gravel.  The quality of the production is monitored, and no density test is needed to validate. It is lighter-weight and free-draining, and it has non-degrading type characteristics. Since TDA is derived from waste tires, it can rouse public attention sometimes, thus an on-site representative should be designated to act as the project public relations (PR) person if needed. This person should be appropriately selected so that media interruptions do not slow the progress of the job.

TDA is considerably lighter than conventional fill material. The limiting factor for moving TDA is not its weight but its volume. To provide the most low-cost method of trucking, trailers need to be big enough so the weight of the TDA being moved reaches the legal highway limit (80,000 lbs gross). The ability to hold and stockpile quantities of TDA on-site before use will allow for the best time and materials management. When considering a TDA stockpile site, the local fire department’s approval should be sought. It is recommended that only vehicles with tires filled with self-sealing gels be used in working with TDA, since it may contain metal shredding.” The full article is available here.

The eco-friendly means of handling recycling helps in conserving many raw materials and protects various habitats.

On June 22, 2016 an article was posted on Environmental Leader by Ken Silverstein titled ‘Recycling and Reusing is Good for the Environment and the Company’ with the following details: “When it comes to formalizing your company’s brand and image on reducing and recycling you nearly apply it to every material in the shop. That’s a key point that the ISS’ head of sustainability Dan Gilbert made at Environmental Leader’s recent conference in a session about sustainability. The ultimate goal, he said, is to create “zero waste,” which can mean cutting anywhere from 90% to 100% of what your company is puts in landfills. The final 10%, he emphasized, is where the real work is. To get there, businesses should be measuring and managing their waste streams, and reporting their progress at least on a quarterly basis.

If you save money, your corporate leaders are more than likely to get behind the initiative. While those sustainability efforts require an upfront outlay in time and resources, they build affinity in communities and among customers. Some examples: Computers would be the worst thing to toss in the landfill. This is since they have so many metals and that can leach into the ground water system. Other things that businesses can recycle include supplies, equipment, boxes, shelving and miscellaneous racks.

The companies that take those items might pay those donating for the materials that will eventually go into new products. If a mobile phone is built from recycled components, it prevented waste from going into the landfill and it has created a perfectly good use of still viable components. Companies with their own cafeterias, furthermore, can compost their food scrap rather than toss it in the trash. Food scraps are heavy and they break down and create methane gases. It is possible to be composted and that enriches the soil. Things like plastic pieces, tableware and coffee cups can also be eco-friendly — meaning they are biodegradable.

All businesses can take steps to be more environmentally friendly. One of the fastest ways to do so is to create separate containers for the recyclables and the real trash — but not to mix together. A single-stream deposit in which everything goes into a single bin is better than having various ones for different items. As for the companies that have to invest in these bins, it can be hard enough to get them to buy one, much less 4 of them. A local place to put all recyclables is usually the best solution. Having difficulty finding a vendor to pick them up? Start with the hauler that picks your trash. And if that doesn’t work, get on Google and look for one. He points to a recent Utah State University report that found 20-40% percent of the objects that go into the trash could have been recycled.” The complete article is available here.
