“The Orthopaedic Center has 21 locations across Alabama and Tennessee, and TriHaz Solutions has managed our medical waste for several years. They are very responsive – “Johnny-on-the-spot” whenever I need to add a service or have a question! Before TriHaz, we had to use several vendors for our different locations, and with their bundled services, we can include secure document destruction. This is much more efficient, with one pickup and one invoice. Plus, we have no worries about compliance since our waste is being properly transported, treated, and disposed.”

What Is Hazardous Waste In Automotive?

Hazardous waste in the automotive industry refers to substances and materials that can pose risks to human health and the environment if not properly managed. These wastes are generated during vehicle maintenance, repair, manufacturing, and dismantling activities. Common types of hazardous waste in automotive include:
  • Used motor oil and filters
  • Antifreeze and coolant fluids
  • Brake fluid and transmission fluid
  • Batteries (lead-acid batteries)
  • Solvents and degreasers used in cleaning parts
  • Paints, thinners, and other coating materials
  • Tires (due to the potential for toxic runoff and fire hazards)
Proper handling, storage, and disposal of these materials are crucial to prevent pollution and protect public health.

How Do You Dispose Of Hazardous Waste In Alabama?

In Alabama, the disposal of hazardous waste is regulated by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). Individuals and businesses must follow state and federal guidelines to ensure safe and legal disposal of hazardous materials. Here are the general steps for disposing of hazardous waste in Alabama:
  1. Identify Hazardous Waste: Determine if the waste is hazardous according to state and federal regulations. Common hazardous wastes include chemicals, paints, batteries, and electronic waste.
  2. Segregation and Storage: Segregate hazardous waste from non-hazardous waste and store it in appropriate containers, clearly labeling each container with its contents and hazard classification.
  3. Use of Licensed Hazardous Waste Disposal Services: For individuals, many counties and municipalities in Alabama offer household hazardous waste collection events or facilities where residents can drop off hazardous waste. Businesses generating hazardous waste must contract with licensed hazardous waste haulers and disposal facilities.
  4. Recordkeeping: Businesses must maintain records of hazardous waste generation, storage, and disposal, following ADEM’s guidelines and requirements.
  5. Compliance with Regulations: Ensure compliance with all relevant local, state, and federal regulations regarding hazardous waste disposal, including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and ADEM regulations.
