Retailer Must Give Investigators a Decade of Haz Waste Info
A local District Attorney's office requested information about the company’s facilities, former employees responsible for environmental compliance, and potential HWCL violations found during inspections between 2015 and 2017.
BackgroundThe retail giant argued in court that investigations into its hazardous waste management practices “serve no reasonable purpose” due to an existing consent judgment the company entered in 2010 to settle previous alleged HWCL violations.
On September 21, 2020, the court rejected the retailers challenge and affirmed that the company must comply with the state’s request for information. The existing agreement does not prevent California from investigating other possible hazardous waste violations, in the appeals panel’s view.

The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
