Identify Dangerous Waste

Dangerous Waste

Many businesses are not aware that the waste they produce is dangerous. Some wastes that require special management are lead-acid batteries, oil-based paint, waste oil, restaurant grease, solvents, and medicines. The quantity of dangerous waste you produce does matter and may impact your disposal options. Please call us for guidance (360) 778-7700. 

Dangerous waste should be stored in containers with tight fitting lids. They can be stored inside or outside under cover and in a tub or on a spill pallet designed to catch drips. Containers should always be labeled.
