THE ENVIRONMENT

Paint and Panel Equipment

As an environmentally conscious company, Bucket Panels utilises the PPG Water Borne System, which is the most environmentally friendly automotive paint system in the world.

Specially designed spray booths and HVLP spray guns reduce solvent emissions into the workshop and atmosphere.

Dry sanding with vacuum extraction eliminates the need for “wet rubbing” therefore avoiding the generation of dirty waste water. All filler dust is collected and disposed of in the correct manner.

Waste Collection and Disposal

All waste thinners, paint, glycol (radiator coolant) and oil are collected and disposed of by, EPA accredited agents.

Air Conditioning Systems

When it is necessary to discharge an air conditioning system, all gases are recovered in specialised equipment by qualified technicians.

Recycling

Where possible Bucket Panels recycle waste materials, including:

  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Plastics
  • Glass
  • Metals
