Free Seminars Explore Hazardous Waste Management in Nevada

RENO, Nev. — The Nevada Small Business Development Center, Business Environmental Program is presenting seminars on hazardous waste management throughout Nevada.

Retail operations, service industries, property managers, manufacturers, automotive repair, and many other business and government operations have the potential for generating hazardous waste. Fluorescent lamps, solvents, paints, used oil, off-spec products, and electronics are a few examples of wastes that may require special management and disposal. Managing hazardous waste requires much more than keeping containers closed and labeled. The seminar will cover the basics of hazardous waste management and focus on specific requirements including what business must document in their operating records.

The seminars are free. Business owners/operators, supervisors, environmental health and safety personnel, technicians, and others interested in improving their knowledge regarding hazardous waste management are invited to attend. Seminars will be held throughout the month of September in Ely, Las Vegas, Elko, Winnemucca, Reno, Fallon and Carson City.
