MEADVILLE – Representatives of companies that generate hazardous or residual waste can learn more about waste handling regulations during a March 13 seminar in Butler.
The session will be held from 8:45 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the Community Development Corporation of Butler County, 112 Woody Drive, and it will be hosted by the Department of Environmental Protection.
“Businesses owners and operators have a lot to follow and the goal of the seminar is to help make industrial waste handling regulations easier for managers to understand,” said DEP Regional Director Kelly Burch. “We will cover everything from proper disposal of general plant trash to hazardous waste.”
Other topics to be discussed include emergency response plans, employee training, record keeping and storage requirements.
Pre-registration is required as seating is limited. Those who wish to attend should contact Cindy Fry by March 7 at 814-332-6848 or via fax at 814-332-6117.
There is no registration fee.
DEP conducts similar sessions every year throughout northwestern Pennsylvania.
