Project Description The Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) awarded Silver Hanger Cleaners of Bellingham, Massachusetts a $17,000 matching grant to switch to 100 percent wet cleaning technology to eliminate the use of perchloroethylene (perc). The grant will help fund the purchase and installation of wet cleaning equipment. The shop will collect baseline and post-conversion data, including information on the utility and maintenance costs, quality of the cleaned garments, ease of conversion, and customer satisfaction. The new environmentally friendly wet cleaning store will open in May 2008.
