Re: P2 for Auto Dealerships

Martha -- here's a quick answer to your message:  fuel filters -- can 
be recycled off-site if a commercial recycler is available.  
Otherwise, they are  commonly disposed of as hazardous waste if 
permitted under state law.  Batteries -- the industry has switched to Gel batteries (non lead acid) which cost 
more but last much longer, also,  solar battery chargers are 
available which extend lead acid battery life (made by PulseTech);  waste paint -- high volume 
low pressure spray guns to reduce paint waste, gun washers, paint 
booth masking, paint mixing equipment, alternative paint booth 
filters, improved procedures for reducing paint waste, production 
scheduling; fluorescent lights -- low mercury fluorescent tubes are 
available from Phillips that pass the TCLP, there are commercial 
fluorescent bulb recyclers and also on-site crushing equipment to 
reduce the volume.  For more information on these wastes or others 
associated with auto dealerships, feel free to call me.

Does anyone have any P2 information for Auto
dealerships?  Specifically regarding fuel filters, batteries,
waste paint, and fluorescent lights.  

Thanks in advance -
