GLRPPR Sector Resource: Allston Collision Center; Auto Body Shop Switches to Water-Based Paints

Title:
Allston Collision Center; Auto Body Shop Switches to Water-Based Paints

Abstract:
Allston Collision Center, a third generation family-owned auto body shop, opened in Boston in 1928 and moved to its current location, at 420 Cambridge St. in Allston, MA, in 1961. The current owner, Paul Chaet, and president, Elaine O'Neill, have proudly made their family history more "green" by making the switch from solvent-based to water-based paints, recycling and reusing paint thinner, and recycling spray gun washer.
