The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is a regulation that outlines the proper management and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. While the RCRA applies to several industries, retailers are a particular focus as they produce a variety of different forms of hazardous waste that must be properly disposed to protect staff, our environment and our communities.
It’s important for retailers to do their part in protecting human health and the environment, all while ensuring safety of their staff when it comes to waste disposal. To comply with RCRA regulations, retailers should implement a concrete procedure with detailed steps to follow. A few include:
Following RCRA regulations ensures retail staff, customers and the environment are safe from the hazardous materials that retailers sell. Stericycle’s hazardous waste program was developed to address the specific needs and challenges of the retail sector and leverages the experience gained from serving tens of thousands of retail locations, to ease the burden and complications of the RCRA regulation. We offer a comprehensive suite of RCRA and DEA hazardous waste services specifically designed for retailers.
