This web page was developed by the Department of Toxic Substances Control’s Compliance Assistance Team (CAT) to provide information on California hazardous waste requirements to new car dealers. The CAT worked with California New Car Dealers Association, KPA Consulting, and the California CUPA Forum to identify compliance issues that were of concern to new car dealers. This web page should be valuable to any business involved with vehicle service repair as well as other generators.
