How and where to properly dispose of household hazardous waste in Santa Clara County.
Welcome to Boulder County, surrounded by over 98,000 acres of recreational open spaces, and home to Colorado's’ largest state university, Boulder County is a mecca for enthusiastic adventurers and artisans alike. I'm here at Boulder County's Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF) where they process the hazardous materials that cannot be traditionally recycled or safely disposed of in a landfill. Many products used in our homes, yards, workshops and garages contain hazardous ingredients and need to be used and stored safely. Materials include: cleaners, auto products, paints, remodeling supplies, garden products, hobby, pool/spa cleaners, and pet products. When you decide to discard such products, they become hazardous waste. Products from a single home may seem insignificant, but w...

Hazardous Waste Disposal - An Unavoidable Necessity! Visit us at http://hazardouswastedisposalsystem.com/ Dangerous waste disposal, (UK and world-wide), might be an issue for the companies which create the waste. Because of this reason most businesses contract the work out to specialists having the expert and trained staff, in addition to the machines and gear, to manage the issue. Hazardous waste collection and disposal becomes mandatory as a consequence of spills, or since it's created by a given procedure (for instance, rig decommissioning). Some sectors, like the petroleum and gas sector, together with the chemical industry create plenty of hazardous waste in the span of the business. All of it needs to be safely and correctly coped with. Visit us at http://hazardouswastedisposalsyst...

From 1946 through 1993, thirteen countries (fourteen, if the USSR and Russia are considered separately) used ocean disposal or ocean dumping as a method to dispose of nuclear/radioactive waste. The waste materials included both liquids and solids housed in various containers, as well as reactor vessels, with and without spent or damaged nuclear fuel. Since 1993, ocean disposal has been banned by international treaties. (London Convention (1972), Basel Convention, MARPOL 73/78) However, according to the United Nations, some companies have been dumping radioactive waste and other hazardous materials into the coastal waters of Somalia, taking advantage of the fact that the country had no functioning government from the early 1990s onwards. According to one official at the United Nations, thi...

Hosted and presented by Ohio EPA's Office of Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention (OCAPP). Ohio's universal waste rules are a subset of Ohio's hazardous waste rules intended to promote recycling as well as proper disposal by easing certain regulatory requirements. This webinar covers how to properly manage self-generated fluorescent lights, used batteries, and mercury-containing devices under Ohio's universal waste rules. Speaker: Dan Sowry, OCAPP, Environmental Specialist, Central District Office, Columbus, OH.

This presentation focuses on tactics for hazardous waste disposal and opportunities to save time and money. It delves into the regulations and how you can take advantage of storage options. Our speaker also addresses waste minimization and ways to reduce and and segregate your waste streams to meet sustainability goals. Learn about a few case studies that back these strategies up.
For many higher education institutions, hazardous waste is disposed of as soon as it's generated and waste streams are typically comingled. Unfortunately, this approach toward waste management could cause you to lose money and result in your goals falling flat. It’s time to rethink your approach and adopt a more cost-effective and efficient strategy to managing your hazardous chemical waste.
This session covers the basics about Ohio's hazardous waste regulations, how to evaluate your waste streams to see if they are hazardous, and an overview of record keeping, reporting and container management requirements. Simple steps you can take to recycle and/or reduce wastes at your business - steps that can reduce your regulatory burden and save you money are also discussed. Speakers: Tammy McConnell, Division of Materials and Waste Management (DMWM) and Dan Sowry, Office of Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention (OCAPP).

This film was widely used in hazardous waste worker safety and health training classes conducted by the EPA in the 1980s. The film shows the April 1980 US EPA initial hazardous waste site investigation at a farm ("Denny Farm") near Verona, Missouri. This was before the Superfund Law, which Congress passed later that year in response to problems like this site, Love Canal near Buffalo NY and many others. The farm had been leased by a chemical company for waste disposal and contaminated with various chemicals, including dioxin. The worker health and safety precautions taken by the EPA investigating team would later become incorporated into OSHA's Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard in 1986. For more information on this site, read the 1980 EPA Technical Study and Remedi...
