Waste & Hazardous Materials
Minimizing waste by embracing recycling and composting
We are diligently working to reduce the environmental impact of our waste and hazardous materials, most of which is office-related, by centralizing our waste management operations. As part of that effort, we are identifying ways to increase the amount of waste we can divert away from landfill towards recycling and composting.
FY25: Achieve Zero Waste at sites where we have control of waste management
Zero Waste: The conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse and recovery of all products, packaging, and materials, without burning them, and without discharges to land, water or air that threaten the environment or human health.
As defined by OSHA, hazardous materials are “any substance or chemical which is hazardous to people’s health or is physically hazardous.” Chemicals in this class include carcinogens, irritants, corrosives, toxic agents, sensitizers, agents that damage the lungs, skin, eyes or mucous membranes etc. As such our company may use products that may be categorized under this definition for operational business purposes. Therefore, to ensure the health and well-being of all who encounter such hazards our company has established various business plans to manage and prevent human/environmental risks.
Such plans include:
All plans are reviewed, as needed and at a minimum annually, to ensure that our hazardous material processes follow, and are in compliance with, OSHA standards.
