Hazardous Waste Coordinator Training & Certifying

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description This first-in-the-nation certification program for Hazardous Waste Coordinators (HWC) was implemented in 2003 to provide a forum for educating generators in the complex regulatory area of hazardous waste management. Initial certification provides HWC with the regulatory nuts and bolts under the Hazardous Waste Rules, including a short introduction to P2 concepts. From May to December 2003, 16 workshops have been scheduled to train full quantity generators (over 220 lbs/month). Future certification courses will be designed to encourage generators to move "beyond compliance," by developing resource conservation, waste minimization, and recycling programs at their facilities.
