Recently the Washington Department of Ecology updated regulations that provide businesses new ways to manage dangerous chemical wastes they generate as part of their processes. If that impacts your business you can learn more about the Dangerous Waste Regulations at a workshop set for 10 a.m. to noon on April 2 at Ecology’s Central Regional Office, 1250 W. Alder Street in Union Gap.

A news release says "all businesses and facilities are required to properly manage dangerous wastes such as spent solvents, unusable paint, expired chemicals and partially-used aerosol cans. Wastes may be considered dangerous if they are toxic, ignitable, corrosive or reactive."

For more specific details about changes made to the regulations, Ecology has a publication available on its website.
