Universal waste requires special handling and tracking. These waste streams can be recycled!
The ASI Waste team are experts in the management and tracking of universal waste. We are able to guide our customers in the collection, packaging, transportation, disposal, and manifesting of their universal waste to ensure proper handling from the point of generation to the recycling facility!
The EPA has streamlined the management of certain categories of hazardous wastes that are commonly generated in a wide variety of facilities. These streamlined regulations help to promote the recycling of universal wastes. It also has eased the regulatory burden of generators and transporters of these waste streams. This encourages generators to reduce the quantities of these wastes from going to landfills and incinerators. The federal universal waste regulations are found in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in part 273 and apply to four types of universal waste:
- Mercury-Containing Equipment
- Mercury Lamps
We provide the management and collection of universal waste for many facilities through our comprehensive waste management programs. Universal wastes can be recycled and provide a much more environmentally friendly system for the disposal of these waste streams.
