FAQs

What are the specific handling and disposal rules for businesses that generate universal waste?
  • Batteries, lamps and mercury containing equipment must be stored in a container which is closed, structurally sound, compatible with the contents and maintained in good condition.
  • Electronic devices, CRTs and CRT glass may be stored in containers of similar design and construction as those used for battery and lamp storage. Stretch-film on a pallet may also be used as long as the universal waste stored on the pallet is stored in a manner which prevents breakage and release of components to the environment. Each container or pallet of universal waste must be labeled with the words “Universal Waste” and the type of waste being stored (e.g. batteries, lamps, CRTs, etc.).
  • A generator of universal waste may not accumulate universal waste for longer than 1 year.
