Industrial Waste Permitted Facility Compliance

All Those Forms!!

Everyday businesses like drycleaners and automotive repair facilities, even some printing facilities, are almost always regulated by the state and/or county in which they are located. Keeping up with the paperwork and maintaining regulatory compliance is a chore that GAIA is fully capable of assisting our clients with, and staying on top of to help ensure that our clients are as headache free as possible when it comes to regulatory complaince.

GAIA can provide personnel training in accordance with applicable EPA and OSHA regulations.

Routine preventive audit inspections can save businesses thousands of dollars in environmental remediation and regulatory fines. GAIA’s experience performing inspections on hazardous materials and industrial waste facilities in accordance with RCRA lead to preventive BMPs that help maintain regulatory compliance with standards set forth by federal, state and local governments and minimize violations. Examples of these types of facilities include:

Hazardous materials and regulated wastes as listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, 40 CFR Part 261, present various health and safety environmental risks. Serious injury and even death could result from these substances.

  • Petroleum products - including hydraulic fluid, motor oil, lubricants, emulsions and oil coolants
  • Parts cleaners and parts washers including paint thinners and solvents
  • Engine coolant
  • Lead acid batteries
  • Rags contaminated with petroleum and solvents

Dry Cleaning Businesses with On-Site Operations

  • Rags contaminated with petroleum products and solvents

Non-Digital Printing Facilities

While many of today’s printing operations have switched over to digital presses, which virtually eliminate many of the hazardous materials used and wastes generated during the printing and reproduction process, there is often still the need for traditional methods or the use of cleaners that contain solvents. Some of these include:

  • Petroleum based solvents and cleaners
  • Chlorinated solvents and cleaners
  • Rags contaminated with petroleum products and solvents
