Evergreen Oil public notice

Submitted By Aisha Knowles

The Alameda County Fire Department issued a public notice stating that the Evergreen Oil Refinery facility in Newark is undergoing a routine equipment and maintenance inspection Oct.13-24. The ACFD is notifying Newark, and surrounding areas, that there is a possibility of nuisance odors during EvergreenÕs routine maintenance process.

The oil facility performed a similar inspection earlier this month. Maintenance shutdowns are planned on a regular basis to improve operating efficiency and assure compliance with EvergreenÕs Bay Area Air Quality Management Permit and their Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) Permit. This shutdown will allow for repairs, conduct preventative maintenance, inspect equipment, and implement upgrades that cannot be installed while the processing unit is running

The local hazardous waste management company is one of the largest oil waste collectors in the state and the only re-refining operation on the west coast. It collects, transports, and recycles used motor oil, used oil filters, oily water, and other solid and toxic waste.
