Two one-day workshops will be held April 23 and 24, 2008 in Mississauga, Ontario on the topics “Hazardous Waste Management and Land Disposal Restrictions Are You in Compliance?”

(Detailed agenda below.)

The organizers write:

The field of hazardous waste management in Ontario is becoming increasingly complex and is placing an ever expanding onus on all parties involved including generators, carriers, transfer and disposal facility operators. Initiatives such as pre-notification, mixing restrictions, derived from rules, land disposal restrictions, recycling restrictions and the requirements of the Hazardous Waste Information Network registration process all add to the cumbersome task. The new Landfill Disposal Restrictions (LDR) are placing significant, new, responsibilities on generators and service providers alike.

These two one-day workshops are designed to help participants navigate through the plethora of rules and regulations at the federal and provincial levels, that are necessary to ensure compliance. Day one is designed for those who need to develop knowledge about the
whole hazardous waste compliance field, including an in depth knowledge of Ontario Regulation 347. In Day two a strong emphasis is placed on development of a managed
system to ensure compliance with the new Landfill Disposal Restrictions (LDR). The programs have been developed in a modular format to address the needs of both new and experienced participants alike.
