Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) are those wastes produced in our households* that are hazardous in nature, but are not regulated as hazardous waste, under federal and state laws. Each person in Pennsylvania produces an average of four pounds of HHW each year or about 25,000 tons/yr. statewide. Included are such items as old paints and paint related products, pesticides, pool chemicals, drain cleaners, and degreasers and other car care products. Such consumer waste products, if carelessly managed can, and frequently do, create environmental and public health hazards.
The College and University Hazardous Material Management Conference is the premier conference for College and University hazardous materials professionals. It provides an opportunity to network and share best practices on topics such as hazardous waste management, laboratory safety, emergency response, hazardous materials shipping, training techniques, and environmental management.
