For the longest of time, hazardous waste, as disposed by industries, has been controlling the lives and the environment we live in. Every year, industries dispose of millions of tons of hazardous waste that enters the environment, causing havoc.
It is precisely for that reason the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency developed the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the management, transportation, storage and disposal of waste in an appropriate manner. Another requirement of RCRA is that industries must conduct tests to gauge the level of hazard of their waste. As the EPA puts a price tag on industrial hazardous waste disposal, it becomes more and more imperative for generators to get in touch with an environmental testing service provider who can provide accurate results that meet the most vigorous regulatory requirements. Here are 4 reasons why you should choose to work with Phoslab Environmental Services (PES):
