DNREC’s Division of Air Quality offering public workshops
for demolition contractors and municipalities Feb. 10, 16 and 23
DOVER (Feb. 3, 2016) – Demolition contractors and municipality representatives who want to learn more about demolition-related requirements and regulations are encouraged to attend public workshops offered this month by DNREC’s Division of Air Quality (DAQ) and Small Business Environmental Assistance Program. The workshops will provide information on regulations related to demolition activities, asbestos, state and federal notification requirements as well as information on enforcement and recycling opportunities for demolition waste.
Workshops will be held in all three counties from 6-8 p.m., with dates and locations as follow, and preregistration suggested:
· Sussex County: Wednesday, Feb. 10, Sussex County Administrative Offices West Complex, 22215 DuPont Boulevard, Georgetown, DE 19947
· Kent County: Tuesday, Feb. 16, DelDOT Administrative Building, Farmington/Felton Room, 800 Bay Road, Dover, DE 19901
· New Castle County: Tuesday, Feb. 23, Bear Public Library, Meeting Rooms 1A & 1B, 101 Governor’s Place, Bear, DE 19701
“Similar workshops were last held in 2012, and a few recent compliance issues prompted DNREC to hold the workshops again,” said Tom Postell, program manager with DAQ’s Area Source Compliance Program. “With these workshops we want to re-educate both demolition contractors and municipalities about the requirements surrounding demolition activities, and thus enhance future compliance. Contractors and municipality representatives are encouraged to attend.”
For more information, please contact Tom Postell, Division of Air Quality, at 302-739-9402. To preregister, please email Michelle Jacobs, DNREC Small Business ombudsman, Small Business Environmental Assistance Program, at or call 302-739-9069.
