Tom Wood Subaru Launches New Recycling Program

Tom Wood Subaru of Indianapolis remains firmly behind the wheel in driving its eco-friendly approach to business and the community. Beginning on April 1 with a month of sharing how it celebrates the Earth through its environmental stewardship in honor of Earth Day 2018, the dealership will participate in a year-long, eco-friendly initiative, along with many other retailers in the area.

They’ll be collecting snack wrappers and bags, disposable coffee cups and lids, and coffee and tea capsules that’ll help divert these items from local landfills. TerraCycle, an innovative recycling company, will then transform these items into park benches, picnic tables, planters and playground equipment for local schools and businesses. Consumers will then have the opportunity to purchase these recycled products and donate them to the community, completing a positive sustainable cycle.

The dealership has worked closely with the city to plant trees, reuse water and recycle items to donate to area parks and schools, and applying initiatives to become a zero-landfill facility. The dealership was recently awarded the 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award for its dedication to customers, and for supporting area community causes including for the environment, health, education and pets.

The Subaru Love Promise is a way for Subaru retailers to show their respect for all people and to help those that believe in making the world a better place. Along with TerraCycle, Tom Wood Subaru has forged partnerships with many local charities and nonprofits, including Spay and Neuter Services of Indiana, ASPCA, Allisonville Elementary, St. Vincent Hospital, and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital.

Location: 3300 E. 96th St., Indianapolis. For more information,call 888-875-3617 or visit
