Hazardous Waste: The Usual Suspects and How to Manage Them
(Back by popular request, we are bringing back 90-minute hazardous waste training from the UNR-Business Environmental Program.)
Businesses may use a variety of hazardous products in their day-to-day operations, ranging from cleaning chemicals and pesticides to fluorescent light bulbs and batteries. When these items are discarded, they need to bemanaged as hazardous waste because of toxic, ignitable, or even corrosive characteristics. When these waste streams are not properly addressed, they often get thrown in the trash or poured down the drain. This webinar will provide a quick overview of common hazardous wastes, how to comply with the regulations, and prevention measures designed to reduce hazardous waste generation. This information is valuable to any business looking to improve their environmental management.
