Heather Woodward, Technical Director for W&M, was a featured speaker at this year’s Texas Aggregate & Concrete Association Environmental and Sustainability Seminar last month in San Antonio, TX. She spoke on classification and proper disposal of hazardous waste according to RCRA guidelines. The talk was extremely well received with the attendees of the Seminar. Eddie Saucedo, TACA Environmental Committee Chairman, commented that “This was the best talk on this subject that we’ve ever had.”
The lecture was an abbreviated version of the 8 hour RCRA class that W&M administer throughout the year in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.
Jennifer Adams, Division Manager of the Austin office at W&M Environmental, has worked with the Aggregates and Ready Mix industry for 9 years. She knows a challenging area that most aggregate and ready mix plants face is the classification and disposal of waste. “The most common challenge is understanding RCRA rules and classifying waste properly. Improper waste handling is one of the top ten violations according to the TCEQ. Plants need to ensure they have all their documentation in place to prove they are classifying and disposing properly.”
If you have questions on hazardous waste classification, disposal or general compliance, please contact Jennifer Adams.
