OTA worked alongside us to identify safer alternatives to TCE and provided guidance on the changing face of compliance here at Shawmut, including guiding our status change from a large quantity generator of hazardous waste to a very small quantity generator and assisting with our petition to eliminate our EPA Title V Operating Permit.
