GLRPPR Sector Resource: Environmental Compliance for Automotive Recyclers (ECAR)

Environmental Compliance for Automotive Recyclers (ECAR)

Professional automotive recyclers can use this site to find answers to questions such as: How do I know what an environmental inspector looks for at my facility? How can I better follow the rules so as not to jeopardize my business? If changes are necessary, can I actually save money by incorporating some of these modifications? On the site, you will find detailed information about the environmental rules in your state. Topic areas are arranged the way you might find them in a recycling yard. You will first see a picture of the outside of the yard—click on the picture to find out about typical outside activities (such as the vehicle crusher), or click on a building to see details of what operations are carried out inside them. Each selection will take you to a fact sheet with a plain language explanation of the rules, some suggestions on the most efficient and economical way to comply with the rules, and links to more information if you need it.
