Even if a facility does not accept regulated waste for disposal, having a working knowledge of the types of regulated wastes, what hazards they present, and the disposal options available for each of them will help operators do their jobs more effectively. Often residents will approach an operator to ask about disposal options. Unfortunately, materials get surreptitiously dropped at the transfer station, and then the operator has to handle them. NRRA’s Things That Go Boom includes general information regarding several common regulated wastes and the best practices to manage these wastes. It also describes the variety of hazardous materials collection programs and generalized state and federal regulations. (1.75 hours/credits)
