- Is your business eligible for EnviroStars certification?
To be eligible, you must operate a business in a category that typically generates hazardous waste, be located in a participating county, and agree to participate in a periodic renewal process.
- Complete an EnviroStars application worksheet.
The application worksheet helps you to identify what you are already doing, and what you could start doing, to incorporate better practices.
- Schedule a free, on-site consultation.
EnviroStars consultants provide a fresh look at your facility and operations, and will help you assess what improvements can be made; they provide assistance, resources, and verify if you meet certification standards.
- Complete tasks agreed to in the visit, to ensure you meet all qualification criteria.
Recommendations may be made during your on-site visit which must be completed in order to show you meet all required elements of certification; let your consultant know when they are done.
Once we verify that you meet the qualification criteria, we use the on-site consultation visit and your application worksheet to determine a star rating. Within a few short weeks, you will receive a new member packet in the mail and start reaping the rewards of EnviroStars certification!
