A Guide to filling out the Toronto works form

City of Toronto Pollution Prevention and Sewer Bylaw for Auto Refinishing The City of Toronto, Works and Emergency Services is faxing and mailing a package to auto refinishers in Toronto. This update will assist shops, jobbers and coatings firms with any questions they may have. Toronto bylaw #457-2000 requires most businesses to fill out a pollution prevention plan by December 31, 2001.

All mechanical repair garages including dealers, collision repair shops, gas stations, car washes, transmission shops and exhaust repair shops MUST fill out the form sent to them by the City of Toronto. Fines for not filling out the form and mailing it back to the City by December 31, 2001 start at $5,000 and go up from there.

Most of the forms sent out by the City to other repair facilities are complex and from 8-10 pages long. Because the Collision Industry Action Group (CIAG) and the Toronto Collision Repair Society worked with the City of Toronto to simplify our sector's reporting requirements, the form to be filled out for auto refinishers is only two pages long and most of the work has been already handled by CIAG.

If filling out the simplified form takes more than 90 seconds then you are doing something wrong.

1) FACILITY INFORMATION

Insert your name and type of business (options supplied on the form) and where you are located and who is the contact. Your City of Toronto business license number is on the next line- write it in. If you do not have a City license you must obtain one by calling Your City of Toronto spray painting license number is inserted next Your provincial Ministry of Environment Certificate of Approval number is inserted next ( if you do not spraypaint then it is not required nor is your City spray painting license) If you do not have a Certificate of Approval and you are painting, you must obtain one. Call 1-800-318-DENT and CIAG will handle this for you. NAICS and Industrial Catagory number -CIAG has already filled this in for you-leave it alone Do you spray paint - yes then fill out the rest of the form NO- then sign the form now and mail in

2) SCOPE OF THE PLAN

Do you spraypaint if yes-check off the box Do you generate any other pollutants? If not, and the vast majority of shops would not, then do not put anything in the box. For product used- just insert in the box beside the Paint box, your paint manufacturer(not local supplier) In the solvent area- just write the manufacturer's name in the box next to it. (CIAG has agreed to forward the MSDS sheets to the City of Toronto so the shop does not need to forward any other data)

3) DESCRIPTION OF TYPES, QUANTITIES ETC.

CIAG has this is already done for you.

4) DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT WASTE REDUCTION

Just answer the questions yes or no in the boxes provided. A waste hauler is mandatory and needs the name of the hauler inserted.

5) DESCRIPTION OF POLLUTION PREVENTION

Read the options- if you think that you want to use these suggestions and implement in your shop (and they are good suggestions) within the next few years then mark YES, if not mark NO.

6) LIST OF POSSIBLE 3 AND 6 YEAR TARGETS

CIAG has already filled this out for you

7) DECLARATION

Insert your name and shop name. Sign, date and mail These answers will work for the vast majority of shops- if your shop is somehow different, then please overwrite our suggestions and the printed responses on the form and put in your own.

Spills information will soon be available on this website.

Spills in an Autobody Shop: Tips on Prevention and Safe Handling

Many waste and stormwater problems for autobody shops start with accidental spills or improper disposal of oil or other waste products. Following are some tips that will help you to avoid these problems.

1) Always use drip pans when handling any type of liquid in the shop, especially hazardous ones.

2) Use separate drip pans for each fluid to avoid mixing before recycling.

3) Always use funnels during fluid transfer.

4) Do not dispose of any hazardous substance by dumping it down a floor drain, storm drain or on to the ground. Recycle on-site with a solvent recycler or with an off-site recycler.

5) Promptly clean up spills using absorbent materials.

6) Use the least amount of water as possible when cleaning up a spill.

7) Obtain a list of emergency response contact phone numbers including the Ministry of Environment Spills Action Centre (1-800-268-6060) or (416-325-3000) Post lists of these numbers in very visible locations near storage areas.

8) Train staff in dealing with spills of all sizes and types. Make clear, explicit lists of the steps to be taken in cases of emergency. Post these lists in very visible locations near storage areas.
