Garment Care Outreach

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Korean American Dry Cleaners Association
Project Description The Korean American Dry Cleaners Association partnered with the CT DEP Pollution Prevention Office in sponsoring a workshop for Association members on September 26th, 2004, at St. Joseph's College in West Hartford. A similar workshop had been held in 1996, and this was an update held at the Association's request. Topics covered included pollution prevention opportunities; air, water, and waste regulations and inspections; and the property transfer program. A representative from the CT Department of Economic & Community Development provided an overview of the State's dry cleaner remediation fund.

Workshop participants received the newly revised and expanded Garment Care Fact Sheets Guidebook and "Dry Cleaner Checklist." The checklist gives the business owner easy ways to keep track of refrigerated condenser inspections as well as monitor perchloroethylene usage and leaks. The Property Transfer Act and Remediation Fund Facts sheets were translated into Korean by the Association president. Before and after quizzes were given to participants to assess the effectiveness of the workshop.
