Hazardous & Non-Hazardous Wastes


HAZARDOUS WASTE COMPLIANCE

Admiral’s staff has considerable experience helping clients comply with hazardous waste requirements. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) vigorously enforces hazardous waste rules and assesses fines for violations that can reach several hundred thousand dollars. The Illinois EPA also inspects and enforces the regulations, but not as vigorously.

If your facility is inspected by the USEPA, Admiral’s staff can help you achieve compliance quickly while satisfying the agency’s typically rigorous information requests. Prompt action on your part can work to reduce the final enforcement action and fine. We often see cases where a company thought they could handle the information requests, but actually made the situation worse. For those cases where the possible enforcement action is significant, our experienced staff can advise you through the process (with your attorney if appropriate).

WASTE DETERMINATION - Our experienced staff can identify and prepare the required Waste Determination to document the rationale for hazardous waste or nonhazardous waste decisions and applicable waste codes.

RCRA AIR EMISSIONS MONITORING

Some Large Quantity Generators are required to monthly monitor for volatile organic compound emissions from their hazardous waste tanks and containers. The regulations are found in 40CFR Part 265, Subparts AA, BB, and CC.

Admiral can assess your compliance situation and perform the monthly air monitoring using Method 21 - Determination of Volatile Organic Compound Leaks. We have the necessary field instruments, Thermo TVA-1000B with FID detector.

For more information, the following EPA presentation provides an overview of the regulations:


NON-HAZARDOUS / SPECIAL WASTE COMPLIANCE

In Illinois there are unique regulations covering Special Wastes, that regulate nearly all non-hazardous waste materials from industrial operations. As a team of experts that exclusively focuses on Illinois environmental compliance regulations, Admiral can help you comply with these Special Waste rules.

NONSPECIAL WASTE CERTIFICATION - In many cases Illinois EPA allows for an exemption from the Special Waste requirements. We can prepare the necessary NonSpecial Waste Certification to take advantage of this program.
