If your company generates hazardous waste, you know that the safe handling and disposal of these materials is crucial and that it is heavily regulated. But did you know that disposal of non-hazardous waste is also regulated? Yes, there is a difference between non-hazardous waste and trash. Non-hazardous waste is the materials that aren’t classified as hazardous, but they can’t go in your regular dumpster either. Even though non-hazardous waste doesn’t threaten health and safety, compliant disposal is still essential.
Collection and Classification
As with the different categories of hazardous waste, different types of non-hazardous waste will require different methods of containment and eventual disposal. When deciding what type of materials you are dealing with, classification may seem straightforward, but that is often misleading. Partnering with a company that is experienced in both hazardous and non-hazardous waste collection and disposal ensures that your company will receive the training they need and that wastes will be dealt with in accordance with all relevant regulations. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) contains hundreds of rules governing waste handling and disposal and penalties for non-compliance are steep.
Transportation and Disposal
Once wastes have been properly collected and contained, they will need to be transported to their respective disposal sites. This carries its own set of regulations. You can’t just load materials into the back of a truck and take them where they need to go. Regulated waste-disposal companies like AEG Environmental have employees who receive extensive training on the safe transportation and disposal of materials. They also have vehicles that have been specially modified to contain damage if something should happen during transport.
