Minnesota: J&A Cleaners Case Study

With funding from the MN Small Business Assistance Program, J&A Cleaners of Mendota Heights, MN, purchased a new, "greener" dry cleaning machine, which uses much less of the toxic chemical perchloroethylene as well as water. It also gives Rick Vasko, owner of J&A Cleaners, "...better peace of mind, knowing I could greatly decrease our hazardous waste and cut back our perc exposure."
