LQG RCRA Waste Minimization Program

RCRA hazardous waste generators that ship  waste off-site must sign and acknowledge the waste minimization certification on a uniform hazardous waste manifest in accordance with 40 CFR 262.27.  Additionally, large quantity generators must have a program in place to reduce the volume and toxicity of waste generated.

Curie’s waste minimization program consists of reducing the mass and volume of hazardous waste generated by performing on-site consolidation of lab packs, elementary neutralization, deactivation and return of compressed gas cylinders to the manufacturer.

Our chemists and technicians will typically perform on-site waste minimization services 1 week in advance of routine scheduled pickups by the generator’s waste contractor.   A summary report will be prepared for the generator that may be used as the inventory for the upcoming shipment.

The advantages of our waste minimization program include the following:

  • Significant cost savings – reduce your quarterly shipment cost by up to 50%
  • Effective  waste minimization – reduce your mass/volume of hazardous waste by 25%
  • Continue to use your existing hazardous waste contractors
