Hazardous Waste Container not Labeled = RCRA Violation for Delaware Body Shop

Hazardous Waste Container not Labeled = RCRA Violation for Delaware Body Shop

The Bullet:

It does not appear that any fines were issued, but a simple violation of the state hazardous waste regulations could have been avoided with a little knowledge.Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control

Who:

Enforcement Agency:  Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC)

DNREC Contact: Davis, William B

Violator: Brandywine Body Shop

What:

Enforcement Number: 2014-11975 Program: Solid & Hazardous Waste

Where:
Brandywine Body Shop
1325 Newport Gap Pike
Wilmington DE
When:

Date violation discovered: 08/19/2014

Date corrected: 08/19/2014

Date notice of violation served: 11/28/2014

 

Why:

Containers of hazardous waste were not marked with the words “Hazardous Waste” or with other words that identify the contents of the containers.

How:

As a state with an authorized hazardous waste program, Delaware may conduct RCRA compliance inspections of businesses within its borders and issue violations and fines for non-compliance.

Conclusion:

Something as simple as failing to label a hazardous waste container resulted in a violation for this business.  If you don’t have the time or resources for my Onsite Training or for one of my Training Seminars, consider the low-cost and quick alternative to formal training that will bring you into compliance:  Webinar Training.
