Universal Waste 101

Course Introduction

We have always taught Universal Waste as part of our Hazardous Waste class but since so many people asked for it separately here it is. This interactive course covers the U.S. EPA’s Universal Waste Regulations and meets the EPA's annual training requirement. Universal waste includes batteries, electrical lamps, mercury containing equipment, pesticides, waste pharmaceuticals, etc… As an added benefit we also cover the used oil handling requirements.
