Any business that produces or generates a hazardous waste is responsible for disposing of that waste legally. The management and disposal of hazardous waste is regulated by state and federal laws. It is important for your business to understand the disposal restrictions or options available to you. In addition there are many wastes that while not regulated hazardous waste, may have special handling requirements or disposal restrictions. Refer to the US EPA and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for more information.
