Dry Cleaners


The Dry Cleaners Certification and Permitting Program was developed to ensure that no perchloroethylene (PERC) is discharged to the sewer, storm drain, or ground.

All wastewater containing PERC or other solvent contaminated liquids should be properly disposed of by evaporation or removed from the facility by a certified waste hauler.  Dry cleaners that have at least one washing machine will be required to obtain an Industrial Waste Permit.

Please contact the LA Sanitation Industrial Waste Management Division at 323-342-6200 for more information.
