Training Opportunities

Final Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Rule
A training class will be held at various locations throughout the state. Each class will consist of two parts, one morning and one afternoon session covering different aspects of the Final Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Rule. Attendees should plan on staying for both sessions.

Hazardous Waste Identification for Healthcare and Reverse Distributors - 9:00 to 11:30 am
This session will introduce those in the healthcare industry and reverse distributors to the concepts of making hazardous waste determinations that involve waste pharmaceuticals, regulated medical waste and other wastes generated at healthcare facilities. Healthcare facilities and reverse distributors will be taught how to make waste determinations specifically geared toward preparing for the implementation of the HW Pharmaceuticals Rule. A question and answer period will be included.

Implementing the Final Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Rule and Amendment to the P075 Listing for Nicotine - 12:30 to 3:00 pm.
The afternoon session will discuss how to determine if the new rule applies at your facility, and the mechanics of complying with the new rule if you are required to comply or if you make a choice to comply. Again, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
