Hazardous Waste

The Environmental Health program licenses and inspects both businesses that generate hazardous waste and those that treat, store, dispose or recycle hazardous waste from other businesses.  In addition, extensive business assistance is available, including training, on-site assistance, and waste reduction tips.
