Hazardous Waste for Auto Body & Auto Salvage Yards

Organization(s) Rhode Island Dept. of Environmental Management
Narragansett Bay Commission
Project Description Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RI DEM) and the Narragansett Bay Commission (NBC) jointly sponsored a workshop for operators of auto body and auto salvage yard facilities in Rhode Island. The workshop was held at the Community College of Rhode Island on June 21, 2006 with 60 people attending representing 47 facilities.

The workshop concentrated on topics relating to accumulating and storing hazardous waste, with detailed discussion on satellite, or work station accumulation requirements, and 90-day storage requirements. RI DEM staff had found a need to provide information and training in both of these areas, when performing inspections and audits in the auto body sector. Because of similar issues in both the auto body and auto salvage sectors, the training was offered to facility operators in both sectors. The main speaker was a RI DEM hazardous waste inspector, who was able to present information relevant to these sectors, as well as the experiences of an inspector.

After reviewing surveys completed by persons attending, it appears that workshop was well received and considered helpful and informative.
