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
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.
