DEP Northeast District Offers Free Large Quantity Generators of Hazardous Waste Training Workshop

Jan. 08, 2015

JACKSONVILLE – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Northeast District will host a free workshop regarding the handling of commercial hazardous waste and the storage of used oil on Friday, Jan. 16 in Jacksonville.

Topics discussed will include hazardous waste identification, universal waste regulations, used oil and used-oil filter management standards. This training is an example of the department’s continued efforts to work directly with the community. The department has found that outreach and training successfully drives higher rates of environmental compliance throughout the state.

Hazardous waste is a discarded substance that because of its concentration, physical or chemical characteristics may pose a hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, disposed or transported. Common regulated wastes at businesses may include solvents, paints, corrosives, spent batteries, used oil and used-oil filters.

Space is limited, so the department recommends registering early. To register for the workshop, please contact Pam Fellabaum at 904-256-1670 or email pamela.fellabaum@dep.state.fl.us.
