MVP2 Award

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description The NH Department of Environmental Services was awarded the Most Valuable Pollution Prevention Award from the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable for the NH Green Yards program, which promotes best management practices (BMPs) in motor vehicle salvage facilities. Twenty motor vehicle salvage yards have been certified as NH Green Yards. The yards recycled or reused an estimated 114,450 gallons of gasoline, 32,100 gallons of oil, and 37,700 gallons of antifreeze that could have potentially been discharged to ground or surface water. In addition to promoting BMPs to salvage yards, the project also targets municipal officials to educate them on the rules and regulations for licensing facilities as well as a general overview of BMPs.
