WEBINAR RCRA Hazardous Waste Management for Hospitals

Based upon popular request, the Business Environmental Program (BEP) is  presenting a special RCRA Hazardous Waste Management webinar focused specifically for hospitals. Hospitals use a variety of hazardous products in their day-to-day operations, ranging from pharmaceuticals and batteries to paint and fluorescent light bulbs. When these items are discarded, they need to be managed as hazardous waste because of toxic, ignitable, or even corrosive characteristics. Unfortunately, when these waste streams are not properly addressed, they often get thrown in the trash or poured down the drain.

This webinar will provide a quick overview of common hazardous wastes found in hospitals, how to comply with the regulations, and prevention measures designed to reduce hazardous waste generation.  This information is valuable to any hospital or medical center looking to improve their environmental management.
