HD Supply Facilities Maintenance, Ltd. Settlement
HD Supply Facilities Maintenance, Ltd. Settles For $42,750
In May 2023, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with HD Supply Facilities Maintenance, Ltd. (HD Supply), with its principal location in Atlanta, Georgia, for the company’s violation of the Regulation for Reducing Emissions from Consumer Products (Consumer Products Regulation) as codified in the California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94507 et seq.
CARB Enforcement staff conducted an investigation that revealed HD Supply sold, supplied, offered for sale and/or manufactured for use in California, a non-aerosol floor wax stripper whose label stated a dilution ratio for light or medium build-up of polish that resulted in an as-used VOC concentration that exceeded the 3 percent by weight limit, specified in the Consumer Products Regulation, under California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94509(j)(1). In addition, HD Supply failed to provide an explanation of the code representing the date of manufacture, as required annually by the Consumer Product Regulation, under California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94512(c).
To settle the case, HD Supply agreed to a penalty of $42,750 for 2.65 tons of excess VOC emissions and one day of date code violation. The penalty will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality. HD Supply fully cooperated with CARB to resolve this matter. The wax stripper product has been modified to comply, and the date code explanation has been brought current with the Consumer Products Regulation.
