Thanks but No Tanks

Nylund’s Says “Thanks, but No Tanks

By now you’ve probably already heard that Nylund’s Collision Center cares very much about each and every guest we are honored to serve.  But did you know that we also care about improving our community as well? It’s true… we make every effort to be good stewards of the resources under our care – and in this case – we really mean UNDER our care!

We are proud to announce that our new property (opening December, 2016) – once rumored to be one of Colorado’s largest sites of petroleum underground storage tanks (USTs) – is now 100% UST-Free!

The earth is a cleaner, safer place, and the parking lot will be a whole lot (pun intended) smoother after our successful removal of 20+ huge petroleum storage tanks that were used by the previous property owners, Duggan Energy.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 563,000 USTs nationwide store petroleum or hazardous substances. The greatest potential threat from a leaking UST is the contamination of ground water, a source of drinking water for nearly half of all Americans.

Nylund’s worked with a local environmental consulting group to successfully remove all of the tanks, in order to satisfy all city, state and federal health and safety regulations. Our upcoming move to our new shop not only doubles our capacity to serve our guests – but also makes our community a safer, healthier place in which to live and work.
