Almost every company contributes to universal waste to some degree. From light bulbs to plant regulators, your everyday materials can pose a hazardous threat to the environment if not disposed of properly. With our guidance, you can practice environmentally sustainable methods while staying compliant with federal regulations.
Responsibly Manage Your Universal Waste
The day to day operations of your cannabis facility may involve the use of harmful universal waste materials. Universal wastes include products that contain toxic substances that can harm the environment. Whether your operation uses fluorescent bulbs or aerosol cans, we have the right tools to haul them for safe recycling and disposal.
Per universal waste regulations, these materials should be disposed of responsibly and compliantly. By working directly with Easy Waste Management, you can rest assured that your business takes environmentally conscious measures to keep hazardous waste out of landfills.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines and classifies the following materials as the four main types of universal waste:
- Light Bulbs/Lamps: Common examples include, but are not limited to, fluorescent lamps, high-intensity discharge lamps, metal halide lamps, and mercury vapor bulbs.
- Batteries: Any battery-operated electronic devices, such as cannabis software monitors, flashlights, and grow light equipment are prime examples.
- Pesticides: Substances or mixtures that intend to serve as plant regulators, defoliants, or desiccants as well as substances that prevent, kill, ward off, or minimize pests.
- Mercury-containing equipment: This includes any gear or device parts that contain elemental mercury, such as thermostats, temperature and pressure gauges, and certain switches.
