Hazardous Waste Management Guidance

Generating and accumulating hazardous waste on-site can pose a threat to human health and the environment, so you may only keep it for short time without a permit. Before shipping the waste for disposal or recycling, you are responsible for its safe management, which includes safe storage, safe treatment, preventing accidents, and responding to emergencies in accordance with federal and Oregon regulations.
