An Enviro-Minute: Back from The Field : LUSENET : Waste Management : One Thread

I've been in the field for the past few days, visiting bodyshops and fleet service centers. I have to say after this most recent trip that my hat is off to the guys that can work in shops that have to be at least 98 degrees and still turn out a quality product.

Please take a moment to review your waste management practices... untested spraybooth filters/stillbottoms being disposed of in dumpsters and spraybooths without the proper permits continue to be a large problem. Rolling the waste management dice is risky.. especially for the small shops that don't have a large budget to fend off EPA fines.

State regulatory agencies encourage shops to be self-policing - and they are ALWAYS far easier to deal with when they don't come into a shop loaded for bear.
