The Safe Handling of Industrial Waste Disposal

July 12, 2017.

Do you have an appropriate plan in place for industrial waste disposal? A blanket term describing any byproduct of industrial production, this waste can be anything from paper sludge to hazardous chemicals. As an industrial business owner or operator, it’s your responsibility to ensure the appropriate handling of waste.

Negligent handling or poor management doesn’t just have the potential to cause environmental harm and health hazards. Failure to comply with state, local and federal laws in your waste management system can also leave your company open to criminal or civil action.

Why Industrial Waste Disposal Management Matters

The byproducts from your manufacturing, mining or other activities may have the potential to cause irreparable harm to the environment and the health of people living or working in the area. Depending on the particular type of waste your business produces, there’s also the potential for contamination of drinking water or pollution of the air.

Even if your waste is not inherently harmful to people, wildlife, or the environment as a whole, there are other things to consider. Reducing your carbon footprint can be as easy as committing to a recycling program and minimizing waste.

You have a moral and legal obligation to manage and dispose of your waste in the appropriate manner. Being held liable for damages can be devastating, too. All things considered, investing in the right kind of disposal management is a decision that will pay for itself a hundredfold over the course of your operation.

Finding Waste Management Systems You Can Trust

When you choose a waste management partner, it is imperative that you find one you can trust completely. Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, you and your business are responsible for any hazardous waste you produce from “cradle to grave.”

This means that, when you work with an outside disposal company, you are still responsible for your own waste after it’s taken off-site. If the company you choose mishandles hazardous waste, with or without intent to do so, you can still be held accountable under the law. Since the RCRA also sets forth a framework for managing non-hazardous waste, you must have partners you can trust every step of the way.
