The California Department of Toxic Substances Control has recognized Rizzoli’s Automotive of San Luis Obispo as a certified California Green Station.
That designation is given to vehicle service and repair and auto body and paint companies that use fewer toxic products in daily operations, conserve water and energy and generate less waste and fewer hazardous emissions.
Morin Brothers Automotive at 4090 Broad St. is the only other San Luis Obispo County green station listed on the department’s website.
Rizzoli’s, at 2584 Victoria Ave. in San Luis Obispo, switched from using hazardous solvents to using more “environmentally friendly” water-based solutions for cleaning all auto parts and brakes.
