Waste Considered in Non-Hazardous Waste Disposal

The EPA categorizes waste into hazardous and non-hazardous varieties. While hazardous waste is characterized by its ignitability, corrosivity, toxicity, or reactivity, non-hazardous waste does not pose a threat to the environment or human health. Nevertheless, many types of non-hazardous waste cannot be disposed of in a common trash receptacle or sewer line as it poses certain risks.

According to the RCRA, non-hazardous waste can take the form of a solid, liquid, gas, semisolid, or slurry. These products are subjected to federal and state disposal guidelines to monitor landfill use. The most common types of non-hazardous waste we assist with includes:

Agricultural Waste




Construction Debris


Clean Glass


Cardboard & Paper

Cardboard & Paper



Electronic Waste


Plastic Packaging


General Debris


Medical Waste






Non-Hazardous Waste Disposal Process

The proper disposal procedures for non-hazardous waste involve multiple steps, from identification to reporting procedures.

Waste Identification

We initiate the process of non-hazardous waste disposal by identifying and classifying the substances involved. A material’s volume, composition, and special handling requirements must be carefully noted to develop a proper disposal plan.

Collection and transportation

After your waste has been identified, we dispatch trained staff and specialized vehicles to collect and remove it from your site. We follow stringent safety protocols to ensure the waste is loaded and removed securely.

Transportation compliance

The transportation process itself is subjected to numerous state and federal safety regulations. Our team ensures full compliance. This involves proper labeling, packaging, and documentation procedures to transport non-hazardous waste securely.

Secure transportation

While traveling to the designated recycling or disposal facilities, we only use pre-approved, safe routes to prevent spillage, accidents, and environmental contamination.

Facility selection

There’s no need for you to worry about locating approved disposal centers. We partner with certified facilities that specialize in non-hazardous waste disposal and recycling. Our trusted partners comply with all relevant environmental and regulatory standards.

Environmentally responsible disposal

Once the waste arrives at the chosen facility, it will either undergo treatment, recycling, or safe disposal. The exact methods used depend on the type of non-hazardous waste; however, common methods include energy recovery, composting, and landfilling.

Regulatory compliance

Throughout the entire handling and disposal process, our team maintains meticulous documentation and ensures full compliance with state and federal regulations. We also provide all necessary paperwork and disposal records for you to keep.

Reporting to clients

Our disposal services conclude with the issuance of a comprehensive report. This information details the waste disposal processes performed, methods used, quantities handled, and proof of compliance with environmental regulations.

Sites Considered for Non-Hazardous Waste Disposal

Non-hazardous waste is created as a byproduct of industry-diverse processes. In some situations, it originates from construction projects, medical facilities, or agricultural tasks. No matter where you’re located or how challenging your needs are, our team will be able to assist you. Some of the most common non-hazardous waste sites we visit include:

Disposal Methods for Non-Hazardous Waste

Since there are so many varieties of non-hazardous waste materials, multiple disposal methods can be used. Our knowledgeable team will evaluate your needs and help you identify the best solution. Options include:

  • Recycling & Reuse
  • Supplemental Fuel Programs
  • Incineration Disposal
  • Chemical Treatment
  • Deep Well Injection Landfill
  • TSCA Hazardous Material Facilities

The most common disposal method for non-hazardous waste is landfill disposal. In this method, waste is transported to a designated non-hazardous landfill and buried. However, other types of non-hazardous waste must be reduced in volume or disinfected from pathogens. In these situations, incineration is the most appropriate response. Organic materials like wood or ash can be composted while many types of plastic, paper, and metal can be recycled. No matter which disposal technique is most suitable for your situation, the processes will be carried out at one of our pre-approved RCRA-compliant non-hazardous facilities.
