More Hazardous Waste Training Needed at Sacramento City Facilities, Judge Says
The Sacramento Bee reports that the judgement resulted from a DTSC investigation into how the city handles spills of hazardous waste and city employees’ ability to identify hazardous waste subject to Title 22 regulations.
Under the terms of the settlement, the city will pay $74,667 and fund a supplemental environmental project (SEP) to help other local generators keep their hazardous waste training and waste handling practices up-to-date. As part of the SEP, the city will fund five years of hazardous waste training and hazardous materials training for businesses in Yolo County.
Hazardous waste generators in California face the most stringent, complex requirements in the nation. In addition to US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requirements, the California DTSC creates unique, state-specific standards for generators.
Title 22 Hazardous Waste Training for California Generators
If your site generates California Hazardous Waste Management, 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 California Hazardous Waste Management 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.

These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
