EHS professionals have plenty of obligations and too little time, and tasks related to waste management can be particularly time-consuming. You need to profile all of your wastes, and to have easy access to the information in those profiles. Waste storage times need to be tracked to ensure you don’t exceed regulatory time limits such as the 90-day duration established by RCRA for Large Quantity Generators (LQGs), and you also need to track amounts of waste generated to document your waste generator status. When it comes time to ship wastes, you need to maintain detailed manifests and make sure you receive a “return receipt” from the treatment, storage and disposal facility (TSDF) you deliver to within 30 days. You truly have “cradle to grave” tracking obligations for the waste you generate in the United States, as well as throughout Canada, the United Kingdom and the EU.
The difficulty is even greater when you have many different waste streams originating from more than one facility. With scattered records maintained in multiple formats by multiple individuals, some spread out across states or countries, there are substantial obstacles to getting the information you need, when you need it. Additional challenges arise if your business treats, stores, disposes, or transports wastes. You have to manage numerous compliance tasks, deadlines and obligations, and non-compliance comes at a high cost to your business and its reputation.
Managing waste records manually with paper binder and spreadsheet systems, or working with difficult and inefficient electronic management systems can add to your work load, and your frustration. You don’t need the stress of trying to track down a missing manifest or return receipt, or trying to figure out how much waste was generated at your facility when a stakeholder, or even worse, an auditor is sitting across from you. Without a simple, easy-to-use system for managing waste tracking and documentation, you face an exhausting task just staying on the right side of compliance, with little time or energy to actually to move beyond compliance toward greater safety and sustainability.
