Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste is waste with properties that make it potentially dangerous or harmful to human health or the environment. Hazardous waste's can be liquids, solids, or contained gases. They can be the by-products of manufacturing processes, discarded used materials, or discarded unused commercial products, such as cleaning fluids (solvents) or pesticides. Hazardous wastes have characteristics such as being Flammable, Toxic, Corrosive or Reactive. 
Hazardous waste must be managed in accordance with State and Federal law and must be disposed of through a designated Hazardous waste hauler.

Hazardous waste generators must ensure the safe and proper ordering, storing, labeling, accumulation, packaging, and disposal of Hazardous materials and waste.  

  • Hazardous materials become a waste when you decide that you no longer intend to use or re-use it. 
  • Hazardous waste must be picked up within 180 days of the first drop accumulated as waste. 
  • Ensure that employees are thoroughly familiar with proper waste handling and emergency procedures relevant to their responsibilities.
