If you own or manage a business that produces non-hazardous liquid and or solid waste, it’s important to have it removed from the premises. It’s also important to ensure that it’s disposed of correctly. That’s why you should only work with a partner that specializes in removing and disposing non-hazardous liquid and solid waste, and has been in the business for many years. This is a task that’s far too important to trust to a fly by night company that’s only been in business for a few years or even a few months.
So, why should you have your non-hazardous waste removed sooner rather than later? Even non-hazardous waste can be dangerous. The longer you keep it around the chances increase that it will leak or even spill if the disposal vessels are in an accident. Although you don’t expect that to happen it can and does far more frequently than most facility managers realize. For example, you may have a new forklift operator moving the barrels of non-hazardous waste from one area of the facility to another.
He or she could easily puncture the barrels with the ends of the forklift causing an immediate spill. The forklift operator could also make a mistake by dropping the barrels. That can lead to immediate spills, or tiny cracks in that lead to harder to detect leaks. If those tiny leaks happen to go undetected, the non-hazardous waste contained within the barrels can easily leak into the ground. This happens often when the non-hazardous materials are stored outside.
Speaking of storing it outside, if the non-hazardous waste containers are exposed to the elements the metal barrels can easily corrode. That can lead to leaks. Your company is responsible if the non-hazardous materials pollute the environment or enter into the local water supply. Your company may end up paying a tremendous amount of money in clean-up costs if that happens. You’ll also be faced with fines from the Environmental Protection Agency, state agencies, and local agencies.
In addition, you may very well need to deal with public scrutiny. Nobody likes to do business with a company that is known for polluting the environment. It could very well cost you a great deal of business. The good news is that you can avoid all of the potential hassles and headaches that are associated with non-hazardous liquid and solid waste spills. Simply have the non-hazardous waste removed and disposed of on a regular basis instead of stockpiling it.
