Waste Management Program Design

Hazardous waste generators must meet stringent regulatory requirements.

The number of government regulations concerning hazardous materials handling and waste disposal attest to the priorities our society has placed on worker health and safety, and environmental preservation. The regulation of hazardous waste is important to the protection of the environment and human health. To address this, the EPA has developed strict requirements for all aspects of hazardous waste management including the treatment, transportation, storage, and disposal. In addition to federal requirements, states may develop more stringent requirements that are broader in scope than the federal regulations.
