ARA awarded grant extension to host ECAR Center
Fairfax, VA— The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) recently awarded the Automotive Recyclers
Association (ARA) a $300,000 grant over a five year period to
administer, develop and market the ECAR Center website, www.ecarcenter.org.
Selected over other organizations submitting proposals to administer
the site, ARA will continue to post updates and new state, local
and federal environmental rules and regulations to the ECAR Center
website as they become available.
EPA recommendations for the coming
year concerning the ECAR Center are to develop more reporting
mechanisms and to market the site so more recycling facilities
become aware of its presence and the wealth of environmental information
and compliance issues it contains.
The ECAR Center website is the
home site for listing all environmental compliance issues, state
and federal, for auto recyclers in all 50 states and the District
