Specific topics will include:

  • Hazards associated with recycling
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Worker safety and equipment (field and facility)
  • Equipment maintenance procedures/recordkeeping
  • Emergency planning/plans (including hazardous wastes)
  • How to make a recycling facility the safest it can be, including public access and drop-off issues
