Green Station

In March 2013, DTSC suspended accepting applications (new or renewal) or annual verifications.

Effective December 31, 2013, the California Green Station Program will end.  However, shops currently certified will retain a valid certification for 3 years from the issued date.  

Any materials provided in connection with this program shall only be valid until the expiration date of the certification, shall only be used at the location of the certified site, are non-transferable and shall not be altered as to color or content.


Your interest in the California Green Station Program is greatly appreciated and you’re encouraged to continue working to promote a healthy community and safe environment.


There are additional programs that are available to assist you in your efforts.  Please contact:
