Hazardous Waste Management
Expertise in Delaware
MCF Environmental Services have been serving medical clinics, laboratories, education institutions and local businesses for more than 30 years, offering specialist waste collection and disposal services for hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams.
The state of Delaware defines hazardous wastes as those that are ‘inherently dangerous’ to handle or dispose. What does that mean for your business? First, know the definition of hazardous waste in the state:
"Hazardous Waste" means a solid waste, or combination of solid wastes, which because of its quantity, concentration, or physical, chemical, or infectious characteristics may cause or significantly contribute to an increase in mortality or an increase in serious irreversible, or incapacitating irreversible, illness, or pose a substantial present or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, or disposed of, or otherwise managed.”
If your business generates any healthcare or hazardous waste streams, know the laws regarding its management and disposal. That includes local, state, and federal laws for hazardous waste management. Be prepared to show documentation that those laws are followed. Partnering with a reputable waste management company that has experience in medical and hazardous waste helps ensure compliance and reduce the risk of costly errors and damaged reputations.
Who makes hazardous waste management laws in Delaware?
Solid waste management regulations are overseen by Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. However, compliance of hazardous waste laws are also monitored by the Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances. Accessing the state’s government website is a good place to start for waste guidelines.
Specific requirements for management of infectious wastes can be found here. Any generator of potentially hazardous or infectious waste in the state needs to have an infectious waste identification number and register for a permit. Annual reports are required by the state that detail how those wastes are generated and handled. It’s vital for a healthcare or hazardous waste generator (regardless of size) to know procedures for handling, storing, and transporting such waste for off-site treatment or disposal (Parts 261, 262, and 266 of the Title 7 Administrative Code are especially important).
Issues such as identification and standards applicable to hazardous waste generators in the state must be appropriately and correctly assessed. Trusted by healthcare, government and small businesses in the disposal management of high risk waste streams for over 30 years, our team at MCF are experts in the accumulation, packaging, labeling, storage and treatment of all hazardous waste streams. We are a small team but one that has over a hundred years of collective experience demystifying the complexities around waste management and delivering hazardous waste pickup solutions that match the unique needs of each facility we partner with.
