Small Hydrocarbon Pickup Program

The purpose of the Small Hydrocarbon Acquisition and Recovery Program (SHARP) is to provide an efficient and effective means of managing and handling certain wastes on public property generated by spills, abandonment and traffic accidents. The program allows small amounts of automotive fluids and paint-related wastes to be removed from public property, transported to a point of consolidation and disposed of properly. Identified responsible parties are billed for cost recovery in accordance with the current Fee Resolution. The program is coordinated within the Hazardous Materials Section.
