Workshop shares household hazardous waste collection tips

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Household hazardous waste (HHW) management experts will share best practices for conducting community collection events during a free CAPCOG workshop scheduled for 9 a.m., Friday, June 29. The workshop will be at the CAPCOG offices, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 301, Suite 165 in Austin.

“From underestimating turnout to failing to correctly track and report materials collected, jurisdictions can make mistakes when conducting HHW events,” said Ken May, CAPCOG regional programs coordinator. “This workshop will help them maximize their collections, follow regulations, and save money on the disposal of materials by providing invaluable knowledge from industry leaders.”

Workshop attendees also will learn about coordinating their event with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, how to plan the logistics of collection events, and best-practices for local governments’ contracting of HHW events.
