Lab Pack Services: HazChem has your back
After an inventory review, HazChem will classify the waste in accordance with the Department of Transportation (DOT) , Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and specific disposal facility guidelines. All waste will then be segregated into compatible groups for packaging. HazChem will then draft drum inventory packaging sheets. In addition to the specific drum contents, the drum inventory sheet also includes the proper DOT shipping name, EPA hazard class and waste codes, and any other pertinent information which is used in preparing the paperwork for the transportation and ultimate disposal of the waste. Copies of the documentation, including all required Land Ban Forms and TCLP certifications, are supplied to our customer at job completion.
HazChem is ready to help
Over the past 75 years, industries have developed new products that make our lives easier. But with progress, there has also been an increase in by-products and wastes that can lead to contamination of land, water and air.
The USEPA categorizes waste generators into two classes:
Small-quantity generators are anyone who generates between 220 pounds/month and 2,200 pounds/month of hazardous waste. That’s as little as a 1/2 drum of waste with the density of water.
Large-quantity generators are anyone who generates 2,200 pounds/month (1,000 kg/month) or more during any given month of a calendar year of hazardous waste. That’s only about five drums of a waste with the density of water.
You cannot store waste for more than 90 days if you are a large-quantity generator or 180 days if you are a small-quantity generator. In accordance with regulations, you must train your personnel in proper handling of emergency procedures and have an emergency preparedness plan outlining your procedures in case of an accident.
