Regulated Non-Hazardous Waste Disposal

Non-haz waste management

Some businesses mistakenly assume that the disposal of non-hazardous waste is unregulated. While the regulations may not be quite as tight as those for RCRA hazardous waste disposal, your company still needs to have a regulated non-hazardous waste management plan. Wattbar Industries offers comprehensive regulated non-hazardous waste disposal services that will help you minimize your environmental impact. When you work with a trusted industry expert like Wattbar, we’ll ensure your disposal methods are compliant with all federal, state, and local regulations.

What Type of Waste is Considered Non-Hazardous?

Non-hazardous waste does not have a direct threat to either the environment or to human health. According to the EPA, this is waste that comes from the production of goods and products. This may include waste from the manufacturing process. Yet this is just one type of waste that can fall into this category. Other types of non-hazardous waste include:

  • Construction debris
  • Agricultural waste
  • Industrial waste
  • Certain Chemicals
  • Tires

Even though these materials are considered non-hazardous, they are still regulated and must be managed separately from municipal waste. Non-hazardous waste disposal methods need to comply with regulations to avoid costly fines and citations. Wattbar Industries is well-versed in the regulations surrounding non-hazardous waste, and we can assist you with making a plan for removal and disposal.

Testing Waste to Determine If It Is Non-Hazardous

Sometimes knowing whether your waste is hazardous or non-hazardous is impossible without testing the material(s) first. That’s why working with an experienced regulated waste removal company is vital. Wattbar Industries will help you test and identify the type of waste you have and provide a management solution that fits and complies with all regulations.

How to Dispose of Non-Hazardous Waste

If your company needs to dispose of non-hazardous waste, some strategies can take care of the problem while minimizing your impact on the environment. These methods include:

  • Disposal facilities. Regulated non-hazardous waste disposal facilities have their own rules about what type of waste they accept and how much they can process. Partner with Wattbar Industries and we will take care of the transportation and disposal of regulated non-hazardous waste at one of our affiliated facilities. 
  • Recycling. Recycling is an important part of your regulated non-hazardous waste management plan if you’re trying to reduce your environmental impact.
  • Energy recovery programs. Energy recovery refers to transforming non-recyclable, regulated non-hazardous waste into usable energy. Again, this is a highly eco-friendly solution to deal with your waste and minimizes the amount of waste to be landfilled.
  • Treatment. Shredding, incineration (waste to energy), and biological reduction are additional treatment methods that can help limit the volume of waste you send for landfill. Let Wattbar assist you in managing your non hazardous wastes effectively.

The appropriate method for disposing of regulated non-hazardous waste within your company is contingent upon the specific waste type and the quantity you produce. Wattbar Industries will assist with meeting all regulated non-hazardous waste regulations to ensure you remain compliant and dispose of your waste properly.

Empty Container Management

Even empty drums (5-gallon, 30-gallon, 55-gallon) or empty totes (IBC containers) are required to be handled properly. Empty containers may still pose the same hazards as full containers. Empty drums and empty totes can still be regulated by both the DOT and EPA depending on the nature of the material that was once contained in them.

Wattbar Industries offers safe, easy, and affordable ways to dispose of and/or recycle your empty drums and totes. Call 855-Wattbar today for your free assessment.
