Annual Hill Day and State Legislative Summit

As an automotive recycler and small business owner in your community, you are uniquely qualified to communicate with your elected representatives and help them understand the value of recycled auto parts. It is important that decision makers have access to valid, reliable information about quality recycled auto parts — and hearing from ARA members is the first step. Please join us April 17-19, 2016 for ARA’s Hill Day and the State Legislative Summit — more information available soon.
