Universal Waste

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes the fact that certain categories of hazardous waste are commonly generated by a broad range of establishments. To ease the burden of dealing with these ubiquitous wastes, the EPA has streamlined management standards for the following materials:

  • Batteries
  • Pesticides
  • Mercury-containing Equipment
  • Mercury Lamps

In general, materials that fall into the category of Universal Waste are not counted towards the totals that determine your Generator’s Category for hazardous wastes.

While some of the standards that pertain to other hazardous wastes do not apply to Universal Waste, the EPA still regulates storage and disposal.
