Organization(s) Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association
Project Description In October 2001, the NEWMOA Board of Directors formed a regional Junkyards Workgroup. Recognizing that junkyards, including auto recycling facilities, are potentially a significant source of pollution to land, air, and water and that there are a number of junkyard initiatives underway throughout the region, the Board formed this Workgroup to create a forum for sharing information on states' enforcement and assistance activities and to look for opportunities to leverage each others' efforts. To facilitate the sharing of information, the Workgroup holds periodic conference calls so that states can learn about each others' activities. As mentioned in the EPA Region 1-New England section of this Feature, the Workgroup has also participated in a meeting with the Region1-New England staff and representatives from the regional State Enforcement Coordinators working group to draft a regional problem statement and to discuss performance measures and goals for their assistance and enforcement efforts.
