Why do I need a contractor with all these permits and certifications?
It wasn’t long ago when littering was accepted. "Properly disposed of," meant all of your waste was taken to the local landfill. Household trash, along with car batteries, broken televisions, cleaners and solvents, and even used oil, were gathered together on to one piece of land, and eventually buried to become part of the earth. On the other side of town, people would say, "The solution to pollution is dilution," as they pumped process waste from the factory into the local creek. Thankfully a lot has changed since that time not long ago. We recycle what we can, companies find ways to turn waste streams into revenue streams, and the rest is disposed of under thousands of pages of regulations.
Today, properly disposing of waste requires an expert. Someone must understand the waste streams, select the proper disposal process, and stay up to date with changing regulations. The current regulatory theme is "cradle to the grave" and the responsibility lies with the generator. This means heavy liability for something the average person knows very little about. Errors in paperwork, insufficient waste samples, or requesting the wrong laboratory analysis will lead to astronomical fines and even loss of permits. Selecting the right waste contractor is crucial to protecting both yourself and the environment.
