Auto Recycling Industry Compliance: Summary of Potential Pollutant Sources Mobile App
The Auto Recycling Industry Compliance: Summary of Potential Pollutant Sources app will help track potential sources of pollutants and ways to minimize any exposure to stormwater.
How does it work?
The facility will inspect all activities involved with the automobile recycling operations and provide all possible pollutants, the volumes of each pollutant, and any precautions and/or pollution preventions used to protect stormwater. Any water pollution found should include plans to eliminate the surface run-off, containment of the spill, and management of any environmental protections.
All activities involved with the automobile recycling facility or salvage yard including loading operations, hazardous waste collection, waste disposal, material storage, auto parts processing, vehicle crushing, and equipment maintenance should all be inspected for potential pollutants. Pollutants can include hydraulic fluids, oil, automotive fluids, fuel, lead-acid battery, metals, and other waste. If any of the materials found during the activities prove to be polluting the stormwater, plans for the disposal, recycling, and other pollution prevention should be listed.
