Veldman's Auto Parts
VET's feature of the week is Veldman's Auto Parts. The team at Veldman's earned the Indiana Clean Yard GOLD Award this year. This is a huge accomplishment for them and we are so proud!
What is the Indiana Clean Yard Award?
The first step to become an Indiana Clean Yard is for the owner or operator to conduct a self-audit of the facility using the Auto Salvage Recyclers Workbook, and fix any issues found. Then, the owner or operator can submit the Auto Salvage Recyclers Certification Program Environmental Self-Audit Checklist and Certification Statement (both available on the IDEM Forms page). IDEM will then review the forms and schedule a site visit to verify that your facility follows environmental regulations, has necessary licenses and approvals, and has an effective recycling program. If IDEM finds no issues during the review and site visit, they will present you with the Indiana Clean Yard Award.
