Treating hazardous waste is often far more complex than many waste generators expect it to be. That’s why there is no shame in working with a partner like AEG Environmental. We have the expertise to guide your employees through the training they need to deal with situations they have never encountered before. One of those scenarios involves what to do about non-conforming hazardous waste.
Every time hazardous waste is generated, it must be destroyed as soon as possible. Until it is disposed of, the originator still bears full responsibility for what happens to it. One possible destination is a treatment facility. At a treatment facility, the waste can be rendered non-hazardous. But every facility needs to have a waste analysis plan or a WAP. This plan outlines what is supposed to happen next, and what information needs to be included in the waste profile. The waste profile is another vital piece of documentation that cannot be ignored if the waste disposal firm is dedicated to remaining in compliance with all applicable laws.
Let’s turn our attention to waste profiles. These documents provide far more information about the hazardous waste than one would imagine at first. But it details what the waste in question looks like, what chemicals are a part of it, and what properties are associated with it – is it toxic? Is it corrosive? These are important questions to answer. The containers that hold onto the waste while in transit need to have these profiles attached so that the partner who disposes of the waste knows what to do and what to avoid during this complicated process. This plan also indicates what the suggested method of disposal should be.
Some waste streams will fall out of sync. In other words, inspections will reveal something unexpected based on available data and information. That’s where the nonconformity comes from; there are costs associated with this problem as well. All waste streams must be dealt with according to existing rules and regulations. Anything out of the ordinary can become problematic and cause issues for all parties involved.
