California DTSC Rescinds Universal Waste Guidance
Under US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, or RCRA, Universal Waste is defined as common wastes like batteries, certain pesticides, mercury-containing equipment, and lamps. California has expanded on the Federal definition to include electronic wastes like Cathode Ray Tues (CRTs), CRT glass, and aerosol cans.
See the rescinded guidance letter on DTSC’s website here.
By excluding universal waste from counting toward generator status, DTSC is providing more flexibility for manufacturers and other hazardous waste generators in the State. Sites that generate 1,000 or more kilograms of hazardous waste (which previously included universal waste) are required to meet stringent management standards, personnel training requirements, and emergency preparedness measures.
Expert Title 22 Training for CA Hazardous Waste Sites
If your site generates hazardous waste in California, knowing the Federal RCRA rules is not enough. California’s State Health & Safety Code and DTSC regulations set additional, State-specific requirements you must follow to avoid costly civil penalties and future liability.
Be confident you know the specific hazardous waste management and reporting rules that apply to industry in California. At the Hazardous Waste in California Workshop, satisfy your EPA and DTSC training requirement, and get up to speed with the latest laws, rules, and CUPA interpretations that affect your business.
Upcoming sessions: Los Angeles on January 7-8, Santa Barbara on January 11-12, San Francisco on January 11-12, and Fresno on January 14-15. See the full 2016 schedule.

These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
