Do You Have Any Old, Unused or Excessive Materials (equipment, paint cleaning supplies, spray cans, etc.) On-Site?

Here is what you need to do...

•Develop a facility-specific waste reduction plan that covers both hazardous and non-hazardous waste

-hazardous wastes are discarded materials regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency because of public health and safety concerns.

-nonhazardous wastes are discarded materials not regulated by the EPA

•Control material inventory by:

-ordering only the amount of material needed to perform the activity

-storing materials in neat, orderly, segregated areas

•Cover outdoor storage areas to avoid material contact with the elements

Old, unused or excessive products stored on-site can present an environmental liability for the facility.

For additional information, contact your immediate supervisor or visit the environmental web page (
