Proper laboratory analysis of your waste streams

Generators are required to register subject wastes that are generated at a facility. This applies even if the wastes are not being shipped off-site. Your business is required to identify that hazardous materials are properly labeled and responsibly stored and handled. We can assist you with obtaining the proper laboratory analysis of your hazardous and non hazardous waste streams. First time registrants can rely on C.L.E.A.N. to help them navigate the forms.
waste stream analysisIt is imperative that the generator has the analysis conducted to meet compliance with HWIN. This must be done prior to classifying your waste streams. This will assign the waste stream to the appropriate waste class.

C.L.E.A.N. provides this service for free as a complimentary service in order to protect both the generator and the disposal facility as per current government regulations. Any subject waste that is transported off-site must be registered with the Ministry.

Generators need to have enough knowledge about their waste streams to be able to characterize them accurately. We will work with you  to determine whether or not each waste stream needs to be registered with the Ministry. In some cases, the waste may need to undergo laboratory testing. In many cases, a combination of the generator’s knowledge and laboratory testing will be the best approach to characterization. C.L.E.A.N. will also review your waste stream registry for HWIN compliance.

C.L.E.A.N.’s highly skilled technical reps always perform a needs analysis at the customer’s site in order to understand the following:

  1. The manufacturing process
  2. The chemicals and by products that are in the process
  3. The virgin materials and components
  4. The proper waste stream storage and containment procedures
  5. The HWIN classifications are correct for all of the waste streams created

analysis of potential waste streamAll of this is accomplished by means of taking the samples of the streams and performing the laboratory analysis at our labs. C.L.E.A.N. will always report the analytical results from the lab analysis to the customer and provide the compliant descriptions for the waste classes that are applicable to each stream.
This is important in order for the HWIN system to accept the waste class and reflect the waste classes on the Generator number assigned to the customer.

Many plant managers do not rely on laboratory analysis for their waste streams and choose the waste class without considering all of the above information. At  C.L.E.A.N. the customer is always guided through this process with an explanation why each waste class fits a particular waste stream.
