While Federal regulations have defined universal waste, the California Department of Toxic Substances and Control (DTSC) expanded the EPA’s definition to seven classes: batteries, lamps with mercury or lead, mercury-containing devices, electronic devices, cathode ray tubes, CRT glass, and non-empty aerosol cans. While hazardous, some universal waste can be reused or recycled. This course provides a refresher of the standards and techniques needed on the job when collecting, processing, and recycling universal waste.

After learning what defines universal waste, viewers learn the additional California-specific definitions of universal waste. Safe handling is discussed, since many health risks are associated with universal waste. Emergency preparedness is key for keeping work conditions safe. This training course provides details on how to clean up after a waste incident, and on the process for recycling the universal waste.

With this course, workers understand what universal waste is and how to safely work with it per California’s regulations.
