Compliance Screening Checklist for Motor Vehicle Salvage Yards Mobile App
The EPA Compliance Screening Checklist for Motor Vehicle Salvage Yards app will help salvage yards track their compliance for environmental requirements.
How does it work?
Any items that do not comply with the environmental regulations must have a plan in place to rectify the issue and provide general permits for the different topics. EPA district offices should be contacted if the salvage yard has any questions on any failed requirements.
The compliance checklist will check procedures to regulate possible pollution do to possible open burning of scrap metal or used oil and/or the crushing or tearing of vehicles or scrap tires. Storage of freon, used oil, antifreeze, lead-acid batteries, or other hazardous waste should be checked for defective containers and possible spills or leaks. The inspection of all water systems including waste water discharges, storm water prevention plans, and any on site septic systems should also be included.
