The Automotive Recyclers of Massachusetts (ARM) was founded on May 1st, 1957 and incorporated in 1981. ARM is a nonprofit organization formed by professional automotive recyclers to improve our industry, help our members remain current with best practices, and to increase the public’s awareness of the automotive recycling industry as a whole.
ARM represents more than 300 licensed companies across Massachusetts that employ more than 3,000 people. We promote established best management practices for the proper reuse and recycling of automotive vehicles and their parts. ARM members provide consumers and small businesses across Massachusetts with affordable alternatives for replacement parts to keep their cars and trucks in good working condition.
Our facilities are routinely inspected by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and we partner with law-enforcement officials on the local, state and federal levels to track all vehicles we process. We participate in the U.S. Department of Justice National Motor Vehicle Title Information System that was created to help curb auto theft.
Massachusetts is a national leader in the development of environmental and public safety measures to govern automotive recycling. ARM is the voice of our industry partnering with local, state and national officials to work together for the common goals of economic and environmental progress.
ARM is an affiliate of the national Automotive Recyclers Association.
