08/01/2023 at 6:00 at Mijares Mexican Restaurant - "What the Actual Heck?" Making Sense of Environmental Compliance

Hazardous materials compliance is confusing at best and infuriating at worst. While most may agree that the foundation for environmental regulations holds a place in a business, sometimes it can seem like the verbiage …and numbers …and thresholds …and timelines ...and exemptions and... is all just too hard to keep up with, especially in California. Ultimately, this is why Emily started EastWall Environmental, and the primary focus of her presentation, entitled, “What the Actual Heck? For Automotive Service Facilities,” aims to provide an overview of environmental requirements for automotive shops all about hazardous materials/hazardous waste handling. Her presentation will discuss topics such as CERS requirements, identifying hazardous materials/waste, small vs large quantity generators, maintaining manifests, aboveground storage tanks, and some basic strategies to stay in compliance.

07/04/2023 - NO CHAPTER 5 DINNER MEETING

Due to the holiday being on the day of our normal meeting, we will go dark this month and reconvene on August 1 at Mijares for our regularly scheduled meeting.
