Auto Repair Outreach in Puerto Rico

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 2
Project Description Region 2 awarded a $300K PPIS grant to the Solid Waste Authority of Puerto Rico to conduct P2 training and assessments over a multi-year period of the 5,000 licensed automotive service stations in Puerto Rico. The Solid Waste Authority is coordinating with UPR and national PETE to conduct workshops on P2 in this sector. Region 2 is prepared to stay the course until all 5000 stations have been covered by the P2 assessments and training. Metrics will be tracked, including volumes of waste oil not flushed into drains and gallons of solvents reduced from engine and tool cleaning. The Puerto Rico PPIS grant is the start of leveraging funds and programs to effect total sector coverage in a jurisdiction.
