Auto Recyclers

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description The Pollution Prevention Unit coordinated a statewide initiative on auto recyclers. A workgroup comprising representatives from all DEC regions and program areas, enforcement, and legal affairs met with staff from the Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of State, local government organizations, and the Attorney General's Office in order to develop a comprehensive effort to assist auto recyclers in improving their environmental performance. Beginning in early summer 2002, all owners of these facilities were notified regarding the initiative and were encouraged to take advantage of outreach opportunities being developed by the Pollution Prevention Unit. Workshops were held at nine locations across the state; a manual and poster were distributed; and a web page was put on the DEC website. Approximately 60 - 90 auto recyclers were targeted for inspection in the fall of 2002. A database of the facilities includes measures to determine the effectiveness of this initiative.
