Lab Packing Services: Spring is here! Time to Schedule Spring Projects!

Comments Off on Lab Packing Services: Spring is here! Time to Schedule Spring Projects!

Spring is HERE! Spring Projects!  

Lab Packing Services: Spring is here! Now is the time to schedule!

Many of our clients will be working on reorganizing projects, clearing out warehouse space and storage areas. Often, clients discover chemicals in small quantities that are obsolete, out of date, leaking or contaminated, even unknown. The proper packing, transportation and disposal of such chemicals is called a Lab Pack.  ERG Environmental Services specializes in Lab packing services.  Lab Packing is a commonly requested service from our client base although it is technically demanding.  ERG uses our professional, highly trained staff to segregate, inventory, containerize and prepare the regulated documentation.  ERG has over 25 years of experience in environmental services including chemical & lab packing in many industry segments.

The reasons for lab packing may be different, but clients share some common features. They have accumulated chemicals for many months, years, or even decades.  The safety risks involved with continued accumulation is significant.  The clients realize that the items are impractical to keep, and decide that the chemicals are not worth the risk of keeping them stored.

ERG will take inventories, segregate, stabilize, package, label and transport the chemicals following all regulations and laws.

Proper Disposal 

ERG provides turnkey lab pack services. Lab Packing and Chemical Packing must follow specific rules and regulations outlined by RCRA and DOT.  Improper handling, labeling and packaging could lead to health hazards, dangerous conditions or substantial fines.

Industries Served:

  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Transportation
  • Labs
  • Schools
  • Medical Facilities/ Hospitals
  • Demolition
  • Facilities closing/Relocating
  • Government Facilities
  • Colleges/Universities
  • Warehouses
  • Research & Development facilities
  • Business Campuses
  • Office Buildings
  • Industrial Complexes

 

If you need to clear out or safely manage expired, contaminated, or unidentified chemicals in 5-gallon or smaller containers, your organization needs to adhere to regulations, keep incompatible wastes separate, and rely on ERG to handle your lab packing & compliance support needs.

Now is the time to schedule Spring environmental Projects!  

Call us toll free 1.855.459.0021

From full-service recycling; material recovery, disposal and storage; comprehensive hazardous materials management and transport; and total site cleanup and remediation, ERG delivers solutions and capabilities quickly, cost-effectively, and with obsessive safety and professionalism.

Selecting A Hazardous Waste Service Vendor

Comments Off on Selecting A Hazardous Waste Service Vendor
Hazardous Waste Service

It comes as no surprise to you that all Hazardous Waste Service companies are not created equal.  It is important that you understand the vendor who is interested in handling your wastes.  This is important for a single reason, your ultimate liability.

The waste management regulations are specific about your liability for hazardous waste management.  You, as a generator of hazardous waste, are responsible for your waste, forever.  If a hazardous waste management facility becomes a site of environmental contamination under federal or state regulations, you will likely be financially responsible for the clean-up if you shipped any waste to that facility.

You want a competent company who can assist you in understanding the regulations.  You want a company that is concerned about your ultimate liability.  In environmental law, no one can remove you from that liability on a direct basis with the federal government.  Vendors may say that their company takes on your ultimate liability, but as a practical matter the federal government will approach you, the waste generator, and you will have to take third party legal action against your service vendor.  Do not be fooled by the transfer of liability offer that some companies make.

The size of the company does not really affect the quality of the environmental services.  Just because a firm is a national company, does not mean they have cornered the market on environmental knowledge, fiscal responsibility, or business ethics.  Large and small companies both can make errors in advising clients about environmental matters.  Competency is not directly related to the size of a company.

Actions steps for selecting a Hazardous Waste Service Vendor

Get to know your environmental service vendor personally and directly.  Take the time to really understand the ethical standards that they apply when servicing clients.  Ask a lot of questions.  Make sure you feel comfortable with the answer.  If you are not comfortable, look at some other vendors.

Check references.  Don’t just look at the list.  Make some phone calls.  Ask the tough questions about hazardous waste services, price, business ethics, financial stability, and environmental regulatory knowledge.

Contact state regulatory agencies and request a copy of the compliance file for that vendor.  Take the time to do the extra work.  There are civil and criminal penalties associated with hazardous waste management that can be applied to you personally and to your company.

Make sure you exercise good sense in Hazardous Waste Service vendor selection.  Purchasing environmental services based on price alone is not prudent.  Violations of environmental laws have put many people in prison and ended the operating life if businesses.  Don’t choose that route by being careless.

  • Be proactive.  Be careful.  Protect the environment.  Follow the law.  It’s the right thing to do.
