How to Go Easy with Hazardous Waste?

Do you see drums filled with waste liquid and signs? This image can certainly fall into the category of hazardous waste, but it can be produced by almost every industry or process. Other types of hazardous waste are a threat to our health or the environment that you cannot realize. What about pesticides? Most people know that. Petrol? This is also seen as dangerous. Old PCs? That’s all! That is why we should think about hazardous waste disposal.

Waste List

Specific wastes were identified as hazardous by the EPO and three classifications were published.

F-LIST

F-List Waste from ordinary manufacture and industrial process production are on this list. Due to the fact that such waste is manufactured in various industries, it is known as ‘non-specific sources.’

K-LIST

Wastes from a selection of particular industries such as petroleum refining or pesticide production, including sludge or waste water, are listed here. Because we know the industry in which they are produced, they are referred to as ‘source wastes.’

P-LIST AND U-LIST

The wastes on this list shall be discarded in the unused form of commercial chemical products. When discarded, they become dangerous.

Characterized Waste

Many waste materials do not appear in the aforementioned waste. These materials may be considered dangerous if they fulfill one or more of the described hazardous waste characteristics.

FLAMMABLE PRODUCTS

Creates fire, spontaneously burning or with a flash point less than 140 F (60C), under certain conditions.

CORROSIVENESS

Metal tanks, drums or other containers that can corrode. They are equivalent to or below 2 or above or equivalent to 12.5 pH.

REACTIVITY

Under normal conditions these waste materials are unstable. If heated, compressed, or mixed with water, they can cause explosions or toxic fumes or gases, or vapors.

TOXIC COMPONENT

If ingested or absorbed, toxic materials may be harmful or fatal. If deposited, toxin can be taken into the soil and ground water contaminated.

UNIVERSAL WASTE

Typically, universal waste is dangerous, but these categories are very common materials that are found in your family. This category includes more specifically: the batteries, the mercury contained components, pesticide or lamps containing mercury.

MIXED WASTE

Both radioactive and dangerous components contained in the mixed waste. Low mixed waste containing low-level radioactive waste is the most commercially generated waste. It can be produced in many industries including medical, pharmaceutical, nuclear and other power sectors.

ELECTRONIC WASTE

E-waste or electrical or electronic waste is a growing hazardous waste category. Old computers, printers, TVs, refrigerators, even an old coffee or toaster are included. Many of its components are dangerous because of changes during the production process.

Waste Handling

RIGHT STORAGE MATERIAL

Make sure that the right hazardous waste storage boxes are used to store dangerous materials properly. Use containers which are sealable and stop the harmful chemical release. Ensure that storage containers are compatible with waste that is stored and are produced with resistant to weather and corrosion.

THE RIGHT STORAGE AREA

Waste should not be accessible to unauthorized persons in a selected storage area. The region should be clearly acknowledged and designed to stop secondary containment as a hazardous waste storage zone.

Understand Your Needs

WASTE GENERATION

EPA says a hazardous waste generator as “any person or site whose processes and activities create dangerous waste.” Most companies create waste in different forms, so understanding of the status of your hazardous waste generator is crucial for organizations.

TRAIN THE STAFF

To maintain a secure working location, a well-trained employee is essential. The companies must assure, during normal installation operations and emergencies, that employees are well aware of adequate waste handling as well as emergency processes relevant to their responsibilities.If you have the requirement of hazardous waste disposal in OKC, contact us at Envirodispose.
