The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) presented Pull-A-Part, located at 2505 N Producers Lane, Indianapolis, US, with their seventh Indiana Clean Yard-Gold Level award in recognition of the company’s efforts to protect the environment. Hani Sharaya, IDEM Senior Environmental Engineer, presented a commemorative certificate to Pull-A-Part’s Gabriel Boateng and Steve Jones, during a site visit on July 27.
Salvage yards receive and store wrecked vehicles containing antifreeze, gasoline, oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, batteries, mercury switches, and tires. If not managed properly, wrecked vehicles stockpiled in salvage yards can pose an environmental threat. IDEM is committed to helping auto salvage recyclers ensure environmental protection.
IDEM has partnered with Automotive Recyclers of Indiana, Inc. (ARI) to develop the “Indiana Clean Yard” recognition program to reward auto salvage yard operators who meet two different levels of requirements: “Indiana Clean Yard” and “Indiana Clean Yard – Gold Level.”
All Hoosier businesses, including auto salvage recyclers, can obtain free, confidential compliance assistance and request confidential site visits by contacting IDEM’s Office of Compliance and Technical Assistance (CTAP) at 800-988-7901 or by visiting the CTAP website.
