Automotive operations often generate muncipal, residual, and hazardous wastes from automotive fluids handling, the recycling or salvaging of auto parts, and vehicle crushing operations.
In Pennsylvania, small automotive operations should review DEP’s fact sheet on “Proper Management of Wastes from Automotive Recycling Operations
” to better understand how to properly manage wastes onsite. In addition, Pennsylvania DEP maintains a Waste Oil Program
with information and requirements that apply for used motor oil, oil filters, and oil collection sites.
