Just about every industry and commercial activity produces waste. Industrial facilities for example, generate approximately 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste annually in the U.S.
The Environmental Protection Agency has strict regulations on waste management under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) that requires people and businesses to follow a waste management plan on how to responsibly dispose of this accumulated waste.
The types of waste vary, but generally fall into categories of chemical, solid, and hazardous waste.
The RCRA categorizes solid waste as garbage resulting from industrial, commercial, mining, and agricultural operations, and from community activities. It is not limited to only being physically solid but liquid, semi-solid, or contained gaseous material.

TG Oil tackles hazardous medical waste and elevator pit solid waste management, removal, and transportation so you don’t have to.
Health care facilities like nursing homes and hospitals are constantly disposing of hazardous medical waste. This medical waste can be dangerous and harmful to handle. Therefore, should be removed professionally, safely, and lawfully.
In the case of elevator pit maintenance, repairs and waterproofing, oily water is commonly collected due to water intrusion that occurs, as it is one of the lowest points to a building. This water mixes with debris and oils used for functioning the elevator and produces solid waste that requires special handling.
Proper elevator pit waste management requires correct storage, transportation, and labeling of containers in order to be received at the facility where it will be properly disposed of. Learn more about managing elevator pit waste while properly abiding by federal regulations in this article.
Both types of waste need to be disposed of according to state and federal regulations set protocols.
