Message from FADRA President, Tony Quarno

Welcome to the official website of the Florida Auto Dismantlers and Recyclers Association. FADRA is your go-to resource for professional auto recyclers in the State of Florida.  As an affiliate chapter of the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA), the national association, we provide resources to modern recyclers addressing their needs and concerns all across the country. FADRA has been going strong for 47 years and we continue to improve and grow. Founded in part to fight harmful legislation, FADRA has grown into a well-rounded organization devoted to both full service and self-service auto recyclers as well as vendors and affiliates in the automotive industry. In fact, FADRA is recognized as one of the strongest State Associations in the Country.  

You and your organization can benefit from that strength by becoming a member. FADRA has their own lobbyist to monitor State and National legislation, but we can offer so much more. FADRA works directly with law enforcement, DHSMV, DEP, NMVTIS and other state and federal regulatory agencies to keep our members up to date and at the forefront of industry laws and changes affecting our members. We are proud to offer one of the largest and best convention and trade shows in the country. Industry leaders, nationally known vendors, and highly respected speakers from throughout the US and abroad all converge on our yearly meeting to educate, train, and inspire our members to become safer, more compliant, more environmentally friendly, and more profitable. We also publish a quarterly newsletter to keep you informed and up-to-date on best practices and regulatory changes in the industry.

Our strength lies in our members. Becoming a member not only benefits you, it benefits the entire industry.

As your President, my priority is to make sure that everyone in our industry succeeds together and that we keep getting better and stronger. If you have questions, concerns, comments, or just want to know a little more about what we do, feel free to contact me at [email protected]

It’s my privilege and honor to be your President and to continue the great work of our Association in the coming years.
