Vehicle Recycling General Permit Information

Inbound Vehicle Inspection Area

auto towing

vehicle oil spill

Vehicles arriving at your facility.
The first step your facility can accomplish in minimizing environmental hazards is to inspect all inbound vehicles.

Your facility must establish an "Inbound Vehicle Inspection Area".

The "Inbound Vehicle Inspection Area" is where your facility first receives incoming vehicles. Any vehicles that are found to be leaking must be immediately moved to an impervious surface, such as a concrete pad that is contained. This area must be kept clean and be equipped with spill kits.

Inspect incoming vehicles for leaks in engines, radiators, transmissions, differentials, fuel tanks and damaged areas. Leaks must be identified and stopped immediately. Leaks can be controlled using spill kits, absorbent materials, drip pans or trays.

Vehicles in this area must be stored with their hoods down.
