Dry Cleaners

The Pollution Prevention Institute, through the Small Business Environmental Assistance Program, or SBEAP, provides environmental compliance assistance to Kansas dry cleaners. Many dry cleaners are regulated under three different bureaus and some of the requirements are difficult to understand.

This free and confidential compliance assistance is for Kansas small businesses that may need help understanding or identifying how the regulations apply to their facility, and is administered through our hotline, email, on-site visits, training events and and the various tools posted below. In addition to dealing with hazardous waste regulations, SBEAP also assists with air quality permits, storage tank regulations, and waste or stormwater permits.
