Every Facility Generates Waste
It’s not a question of if your facility generates hazardous waste; it’s only a question of how much. It is inevitable that a facility will generate a waste that is considered hazardous under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. Here is a list of materials that may fall under that category:
- aerosol cans
- fluorescent light bulbs
- hand sanitizer
- glass cleaner
- some glues
- some markers
- brake cleaner
- many cosmetics (including isopropyl alcohol, fingernail polish remover, many hair products)
- electronics such as cell phones, computers, printers
- soda syrup from soda dispensers
- paints, roofing compounds, solvents, cleaners, sludge’s, dusts, filters, coatings, byproducts, etc.
It is important for a facility to understand which waste management regulations apply. You must assure that every waste is properly characterized and properly managed.
