Chemical Waste Solutions
The Chemical and Specialty Chemical Industry generates laboratory waste that requires some of the most specific chemical waste solutions for managing and disposing of waste. The chemical industry is one of the largest manufacturing sectors in the United States and produces more than 85,000 different types of chemical products.
Not all chemical waste is classified as hazardous, but many laboratory chemicals and industrial cleaning chemicals are. Generally, if a chemical is highly flammable, corrosive, reactive, or toxic, it’s considered hazardous and needs to be meticulously handled and disposed of safely. Proper disposal of all chemicals, whether hazardous or non-hazardous, is paramount, as improperly handled chemicals pose a risk to human, animal, and environmental health and can leave businesses dealing with a slew of hefty fines and fees.
Chemical waste is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) via the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which governs the disposal of all solid and hazardous materials. To ensure health and safety, chemical waste must be disposed of according to the regulations, guidance, and policies outlined in this act. It must be identified, labeled, and sent to the correct facilities for recycling or disposal.
While businesses can handle their chemical waste internally, experts don’t recommend this. Following proper handling, storage, and disposal procedures for chemical waste can be difficult and time-consuming, especially given the variety of chemical products the industry produces and the disparity in their disposal methods. And if the employees tasked with handling the chemical waste aren’t thoroughly trained, they may injure themselves or discard of the waste incorrectly, opening businesses up to an array of legal problems.
