California DTSC Releases Wildfire Hazardous Waste Guidance

Posted on 9/17/2015 by Roger Marks

As wildfires scorch hundreds of thousands of acres in California, the state’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has released two fact sheets to help residents and emergency remediation workers properly deal with the hazardous waste the fires create.

In addition to guidance on containing and disposing of ash and contaminated debris, the documents guide households, small businesses, contractors, emergency responders, and household waste collectors on best practices for managing and disposing of waste resulting from the wildfires.

Access the DTSC Fact Sheets below:
