Lion Technology launched the Massachusetts Hazardous Waste Management Online Course
this week to help industry professionals in the Bay State meet their responsibilities under the state’s hazardous waste rules.
Why a Massachusetts DEP Hazardous Waste Course?
Professionals who work with and manage hazardous waste in Massachusetts must know their state’s unique rules to prevent releases, liability, and costly civil penalties. These state-only rules are not only critical to compliance, they are often stricter and more complex than the Federal standards.
“If you don’t know your state’s rules, you may be unaware of extra requirements that affect your site. You could even be missing crucial parts of your hazardous waste management plan, like waste streams regulated only in your state,” says Manager of Content Development Jennifer Harris, who worked for two years to develop and launch the new online course for Lion.com.

What's Different About the Massachusetts Hazardous Waste Rules?
First authorized by US EPA to run its own hazardous waste compliance program in 1985, Massachusetts DEP creates and enforces its own hazardous waste rules, including:
Massachusetts DEP’s waste ID criteria
State-only hazardous waste codes
A state Recyclable Materials program
Fewer available exclusions for solid waste
Unique contingency plan release reporting rules
Meet Mass DEP’s Annual RCRA Training Mandate
The new online course covers the key differences between Federal RCRA and Massachusetts hazardous waste regulations.
