Automotive maintenance and repair shops generate a variety of waste streams during activities such as replacing fluids (e.g., motor oil, radiator coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid), replacing non-repairable parts (e.g., brake shoes/pads, shocks, batteries, belts, mufflers, electrical components, water pumps) and repairing fixable parts (e.g., brake calipers/rotors/drums, alternators, fuel pumps, carburetors, power train components). Of small quantity generators of hazardous waste in the nation, the automotive repair industry leads in number of generators and in quantity of total waste produced. Many opportunities exist to reduce the oils, sludges, and solvent and aqueous cleaning wastes that are generated. The guide describes the typical waste generating processes of the industry as well as source reduction and/or recycling options for each.
