Riverview auto salvage operation receives special recognition

Riverview, Florida -- On Thursday, Jan. 26, the Environmental Protection Commission of Hillsborough County (EPC) recognized Florida Dial-A-Part for making environmental improvements in its Riverview auto salvage operation, designating it a Green Yard.

Green Yard is an industry-friendly program that encourages and helps auto salvage facilities go above and beyond basic compliance with environmental regulations. It allows them to voluntarily take greater steps to protect the environment.

Salvage yards receive the Green Yard designation for meeting six criteria including: improvements in vehicle processing, waste management, training and record keeping, and the development of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan.

"On behalf of the Environmental Protection Commission, thank you for doing your part by becoming a certified Green Yard" said EPC Board Chairman, Hillsborough Commissioner Kevin Beckner in a release. "You have gone above and beyond to go the extra mile, and it has made a real difference in our community."

Upon receiving a Certificate of Recognition and Green Yard flag at the EPC Board meeting, Florida Dial-A-Part owner, Mike Ingui said, "We want to do our part to the community and for the environment, to keep it clean."

For more information on the program or to learn how to receive EPC's Green Yard designation, contact Gerry Javier at (813) 627-2600 ext. 1306.
