When you’re a finisher one of the things you have to be aware of is proper hazardous waste management; because having Methylene Chloride in my drinking water doesn’t sound like a fun time. Dave Magnuson, Environmental Specialist for Dakota County came to talk to us about just that.
He managed to give us a great amount of information in about an hour and a half…as opposed to the usual 5 hour lecture he gives.
Things that were covered included:
How to properly store and label hazardous waste (we got to see pictures of good and bad examples).
How to categorize your waste and then take care of it accordingly.
How you can transport hazardous waste.
Programs set up in Dakota County to help businesses with their hazardous waste.
Etc. We ended up asking a lots of questions too.
It was very informative and although some of us won’t be living in Dakota County, his slideshow gave us some great guidelines to follow.
Thanks for visiting, Dave!
