Managing Solvent-Contaminated Wipes

Course Code:


A 2014 update to EPA’s RCRA hazardous waste rules excludes solvent-contaminated wipes from the definition of hazardous waste (DSW) under certain conditions. This means that your shop towels, wipes, rags, absorbent mats, and swabs contaminated with hazardous substances may quality for relief from the most burdensome management and disposal standards under RCRA.

At this live, expert-led webinar, find out what you need to know to take advantage of the new relaxed standards for “solvent-contaminated wipes” and start saving your facility time and money immediately. EPA estimates that by capitalizing on this new exclusion, large quantity generators can save tens of thousands of dollars per year, and the industry as a whole will save $25 million.
