Drum Sampling, Overpacking, & Removal


Waste Management Activities - Indianapolis, IN

EFS maintained a corporation's Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Toxic Control Substance Act (TSCA) and non-hazardous waste drum storage areas in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) requirements. EFS inspected the RCRA, TSCA and non-hazardous waste storage areas on a weekly basis to ensure the drummed wastes were properly labeled and stored for future disposal according to the EPA, IDEM and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. A written inventory of the waste stored at the facility was prepared by EFS during each inspection.

In conjunction with maintaining the Foundry's waste storage area, EFS coordinated the disposal of the drummed wastes within EPA and IDEM storage time requirements. EFS properly characterized waste using available Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), laboratory analysis and additional field screening techniques as required. Upon securing approval for disposal at a properly licensed disposal facility, EFS arranged for the transportation of the drummed wastes to the disposal facility. Any drums that did not meet U.S. DOT transportation requirements were repackaged by EFS personnel to meet these requirements. EFS personnel loaded all materials to be disposed and provided all transportation manifests and disposal documentation to the client following removal of the wastes from the facility.
