Dealing with Hazardous Waste

A Free Informational Session at AVA Presented in Cooperation with the City of Lebanon and the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission

Thursday, April 28, 2011

2:00-4:00pm in AVA’s North Studio

Virtually every business and institution generates waste. Some of the waste is hazardous and can threaten human health and/or the environment. Properly identifying potentially dangerous waste materials and knowing how to safely manage them are critical to protecting our health, our quality of life, and our environment.

On April 28, from 2:00-4:00pm, representatives from the City of Lebanon and The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission will offer a workshop at AVA, covering current best practices for businesses and organizations that generate less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste each month. Staff from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services will also be present to provide guidance on how to meet the State’s requirements for management of hazardous waste. Local disposal options will be discussed, including specific issues pertaining to the safe disposal of art supplies.

This free workshop is limited to 30 participants. Pre-registration is required.
