Workshop Offered to Help Auto Body Shops with New Regulations
Free Workshop May 21 in Gorham

Concord, NH – On May 21, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services will offer an afternoon workshop in Gorham for auto body/collision repair shops on both air and hazardous waste requirements. There is limited space for the workshop and pre-registration is required.

March 11, 2011 is the certification deadline requiring all auto body shops to be in compliance with the new Environmental Protection Agency air emission rules. The workshop will review the requirements of this new rule, including how to file a petition of exemption.

Recent surveys have shown many auto body shops are in violation of hazardous waste rules. Some shops are not managing waste paint, waste thinner, and fluorescent lamps in accordance with N.H. environmental regulations.

Owners, operators, managers, or anyone that is responsible for environmental compliance at auto body shops should attend this workshop.

To register, contact Sara Johnson at sara.johnson@des.nh.gov or (603) 271-1379.
