MARCOM is proud to announce the release of our new course on “Universal Waste”, now available in English! This interactive course discusses the types of hazardous materials that are considered to be “universal waste”, and how to handle and dispose of them according to the EPA Universal Waste Regulation.

Disposing of hazardous waste can be a long and complicated process, but some hazardous waste materials are less harmful to people and the environment than others. So to make it easier to recycle these low-risk hazardous waste materials, the EPA created a different class of hazardous waste called “universal waste”. And even though the criteria for their disposal aren’t as strict as for other hazardous wastes, there are still processes and procedures that must be followed to ensure that they are handled and transported safely.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • The types of materials that are considered to be “universal waste”
  • Procedures for handling and transporting universal waste items
  • How to store, handle and dispose of universal waste materials safely
  • The regulatory requirements for working with and disposing of universal waste
  • …and more.

Like all MARCOM courses, this new course on “Universal Waste” uses a powerful combination of full-motion, high-definition video filmed in real world locations, along with audio, text and colorful graphics to provide the most cost-effective training available today.
