About Veolia Environnement Operating in 74 countries with 1,340 companies, Veolia Environnement has over 313,000 employees focused on delivering environmentally sustainable solutions through our four business units, Veolia Water, Veolia Environmental Services, Veolia Energy, and Veolia Transportation.
SARP was the first European center for the treatment of liquid toxic waste. One of Europe’s largest paper and plastic recyclers, Groupe Soulier, has also become part of Veolia through various acquisitions.
Veolia Energy Veolia Water CONTINUITY The Veolia logo begins with the circle, a perfect shape that symbolizes the earth.
RING The circle is enriched to become a ring, which symbolizes the union between two people or two entities and represents two destinies, joined together.
PROTECTION A person emerges within the circle, which becomes two arms, coming together to nurture, unify and protect.
Two heating and air conditioning service businesses formed the foundation of Veolia’s Veolia traces its roots to the original water supply energy division: Compagnie Générale de Chauffe company Compagnie Générale des Eaux (CGE), (CGC) and Chauffage Service, founded through an imperial founded in 1944 and 1935, decree in 1853, to irrigate the Veolia Environnement • $49.7 billion in revenue and over respectively, merged in 1960 countryside around Lyon, $71.7 billion in assets and joined CGE seven years France and, later, to supply • Operating through 1340 companies water to Paris. By 1953 when later. CGE developed services • 313,000 employees focused on delivering CGE celebrated its 100th that evolved into facilities environmentally sustainable solutions anniversary, it was supplying • Over 150 years of experience management contracts. eight million people with Groupe Montenay was water in France over a 10,000-kilometer network created in 1860 and merged with CGC; the first and had branched into municipal waste collection. waste drop-off centers opened in 1986, establishing the waste-to-energy plants.
Veolia Environmental Services Three companies merged with CGE to expand its footprint in the waste arena. Two acquisitions occurred in 1980: Generale d’Entreprise Automobiles (CGEA), which had entered the waste collection market in 1919, and a second company that began in 1867 when Francois Grandjouan won a contract with Nantes to “clear the streets of sewage and waste.” The third company, added in 1990, was a business that had been established in 1870 by the Soulier Brothers to process old rags and paper in Rouen and Chauny. One hazardous waste service, incineration, was first established in 1967 by CGE. The hazardous waste division was first created in 1975 when CGE formed SARP Industries to recycle hazardous waste.
Veolia Transportation In 1875 Compagnie Générale Française de Tramways (CGFT) began operating its first tramways throughout Le Havre, Nancy and Marseille. When the company merged with CGE in 1980, the transportation division was born.

Financial Strength Our parent is Veolia Environnement, a publicly owned company with over 150 years of experience delivering environmental solutions. The Paris-based company is the international leader in providing environmental services for waste, water, energy and transportation. With over $49 billion in revenue, it is the largest environmental services company in the world.
Technical Expertise Our account, project and technical representatives understand hazardous and nonhazardous waste and the related regulatory requirements. Over 1,600 Veolia employees are ready to assist you in any wayâ€”from providing information about government
regulations and answering technical questions regarding treatment alternatives, to training your employees and setting up disposal programs that save you time and money.
Excellent Health and Safety Record Safety is critical in our business, and Veoliaâ€™s safety record is strong. Our OSHA log summary shows a recordable injury case rate that is 34% lower than the average for the North American Industry Classification System Group, and a lost time injury case rate that is 70% lower than the NAICS Group average. Similarly, our Experience Modification Rate, which is used by the insurance industry to determine premiums for workers compensation insurance and is based on past safety performance, is lower than 96% of our competitors. The reason for our excellent record is, simply, training excellence. Our field employees alone receive nearly twice as much training than is required by government regulations.
Innovation through Research Veolia Environnement has established the only research and development program in the world dedicated to environmental services, with laboratories in France, Australia, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This program develops technical innovations for nonhazardous and hazardous waste processes, recovery and disposal, supporting Veoliaâ€™s commitment to environmental sustainability. Locally, we use these innovative processes to improve our efficiencies in recycling electronic waste, metal scrap and organic solvents. To ensure the most cost effective waste processing, we evaluate your waste streams to reduce overall waste volume and expense, while minimizing environmental impact. We always look for ways to reuse, recycle and reduce waste, including using waste as a product. Annually, Veolia transforms over 400 million pounds of waste into a resource through energy recovery, recycling and product substitution. Over 60 million pounds of that waste was converted into usable products, rather than considered hazardous waste under RCRA. Throughout all of our operations, we are pursuing waste treatment options to assure sustainability. 9
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Waste Regulated
• Hazardous waste exhibits at least one of four characteristics—toxicity, corrosivity, ignitability or reactivity • EPA also maintains a list of hazardous wastes which include: discarded commercial chemical products, hazardous wastes from specific industries or sources, and hazardous wastes from non-specific sources. • A mixture of nonhazardous and hazardous waste (e.g., gasoline impacted soil from leaking underground storage tank) • Waste derived from treatment, storage or disposal of hazardous waste (e.g., incineration ash) • Soil, groundwater or sediment contaminated with hazardous waste • Listed Wastes—The F-list includes non-specific source waste from common manufacturing and industrial processes. The K-list includes sourcespecific wastes from specific industries. The P-list and the U-list include discarded commercial chemical products with specific commercial chemical products in an unused form. D-Listed wastes are capable of leaching into the surrounding environment and fail the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) test method.
In 1976 the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted to give the US Environmental Protection Agency the authority to control hazardous waste from the point of generation to its ultimate disposal site—“from cradle to grave”. Besides generation and disposal, RCRA addresses the regulation of hazardous waste transportation, treatment, and storage. The Act also establishes a framework for managing nonhazardous wastes. This summary provides the highlights of RCRA; please refer to 40 CFR 260-279 for details.
The information contained herein is provided by Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C. for general informational purposes only. This information should not be construed as legal advice or a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances.
RCRA was enacted by Congress as an amendment to the Solid Waste Disposal Act, which established a regulatory structure to manage solid and hazardous wastes. There have been two major amendments to RCRA: the Federal Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) in 1984, which gradually eliminated land disposal of hazardous waste, and the 1986 amendments, which addressed underground storage tanks for petroleum and other hazardous substances.
Requirements RCRA applies to any company that generates, transports, treats, stores or disposes of hazardous waste. A waste can be hazardous by exhibiting at least one of four characteristics—toxicity, corrosivity, ignitability or reactivity—or by falling under one of the categories of listed hazardous wastes. These listed hazardous wastes include discarded commercial chemical products, hazardous wastes from specific industries or sources, and hazardous wastes from non-specific sources. The amount of hazardous waste generated by a facility determines its category. The three categories are: • Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG) produces under 100 kg (220 lbs) per month and less than 1 kg (2.2 lbs) per month of acutely toxic waste and is exempt from most reporting requirements, though still responsible for safe management of waste.
Who Is Regulated Any company that generates, transports, treats, stores or disposes of hazardous waste. Sample Industries include: Aerospace Automotive Chemical Consumer products Government and municipalities High technology and electronics Manufacturing Metals Pharmaceutical and biotechnology Pulp and paper Refining Service providers Universities and hospitals Utilities
For details, see 40 CFR: Protection of the Environment
• Small Quantity Generator (SQG) produces between 100 and 1000 kg (220 - 2,200 lbs) per month and less than 1 kg per month of acutely toxic waste. Waste cannot be accumulated for more than 180 days without a permit. • Large Quantity Generator (LQG) produces over 1000 kg (2,200 lbs) per month or greater than 1 kg per month of acutely toxic waste. Waste cannot be accumulated for more than 90 days without a permit. Generators are subject to a variety of requirements that include: • They must be knowledgeable about applicable regulations and train personnel to comply with these regulations. • All waste must be tracked through the manifest system, the data sheet that documents each shipment of hazardous waste, from the facility that generates it to its final disposal site. Waste must be properly packaged and labeled. Record keeping and reporting requirements must be addressed. • A waste minimization program must be established, which reduces or eliminates hazardous wastes. • Standards for accumulation of hazardous waste must be met. • All sources of hazardous waste must be identified. It may be necessary to obtain a facility identification number, as well. Facilities that treat, store or dispose of hazardous waste are also subject to requirements under RCRA and must obtain a permit from EPA or the authorized state agency.
State Regulations The EPA encourages states to assume primary responsibility for enforcing provisions under RCRA. State requirements must be at least as stringent as those adopted by the EPA.
The information contained herein is provided by Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C. for general informational purposes only. This information should not be construed as legal advice or a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances.
RCRA authorizes EPA to assess penalties of up to $32,500 per day of noncompliance for each violation of the Act. Several factors are considered in determining the penalty amount, including the seriousness of the violation, good faith efforts to comply with applicable requirements, the length of the violation, and whether the company benefited monetarily through noncompliance. 11
Toxic Substance Control Act Chemicals Regulated
The list of TSCA regulated chemicals is updated every four years. The TSCA Inventory contains about 82,000 chemical substances, including: • Asbestos • Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) • New chemical substances and mixtures
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), enacted by Congress in 1976, authorizes EPA to regulate the manufacture, use, distribution and disposal of over 82,000 chemical substances produced or imported into the United States. One major objective of TSCA is to weigh the risks to humans and the environment against the social and economic benefits of a new chemical substance before it is actually distributed.
Who is Regulated Any company that manufactures, imports, or processes certain chemical substances or mixtures.
State Regulations TSCA is federally managed. Regulatory authority is not delegated to the states.
Requirements A premanufacture notice (PMN) for a new chemical substance must be submitted to EPA at least 90 days before manufacturing or importing begins. Information on the manufacturing process, the disposal method and possible health and environmental effects must be included. EPA is authorized to protect human health and the environment against unreasonable risk associated with chemicals and may ban the manufacture or distribution of chemicals or mixtures, limit their use, require labeling or place restrictions on chemicals. EPA is required to gather data, mandate record keeping and reporting for activities related to manufacturing, using, distributing or disposing of chemical substances. Manufacturers and importers must perform various health and environmental tests, establish quality control as part of their production processes, and notify the EPA if they obtain information on possible adverse health effects from use of their products.
Penalties The information contained herein is provided by Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C. for general informational purposes only. This information should not be construed as legal advice or a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances.
Failure to comply with TSCA regulations can result in civil penalties for each day of each violation. Continued failure to comply can result in criminal penalties that include a fine and/or imprisonment.
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act Wastes Regulated
CERCLA requires EPA to prepare a list, in order of priority, of substances that are most commonly found at facilities located at the sites requiring clean up— the National Priorities List. The list is updated every two years. In 2007, 275 entries were included. The top ten are: • Arsenic • Lead • Mercury • Vinyl Chloride • Polychlorinated Biphenyls • Benzene • Cadmium • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons • Benzo(a)pyrene • Benzo(b)fluoranthene
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) was enacted by Congress in 1980 and is widely known as Superfund. CERCLA establishes procedures for cleaning up closed and abandoned hazardous waste sites, assigns liability to those responsible for releasing hazardous waste at such sites and established a trust fund to be used as the source of funds for clean up when no responsible party can be identified. Initially, the fund was created with a tax on the chemical and petroleum industries. CERCLA also provides broad authority to the federal government to respond directly to releases of any hazardous substances that could endanger public health or the environment.
Who Is Regulated Any person responsible for releasing any hazardous substances that could endanger public health or the environment.
Requirements When there is an emergency situation where contaminants are released, CERCLA authorizes both short-term removals and long-term remedial response actions. Shortterm removals require prompt response to address releases or possible releases. Longterm remedial response actions are necessary to reduce the dangers associated with releases of hazardous substances that are serious but not immediately life threatening. Long-term actions may be conducted only at sites listed on EPA’s National Priorities List.
Joint and Several Liability
The information contained herein is provided by Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C. for general informational purposes only. This information should not be construed as legal advice or a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances.
CERCLA imposes joint and several liability for cleaning up contamination caused by hazardous waste. Responsibility for the effects of hazardous waste lie with the generator from inception of the waste to its final disposal, from "cradle to grave". There are four groups of potentially responsible parties, which include: (1) the current owner or operator of a vessel or a facility; (2) the owner or operator of a vessel or facility at the time of the disposal of any hazardous substance; (3) the generator(s) of any hazardous substances located on the site; and (4) any transporter of hazardous substances to a site the transporter selected. No agreement protects a responsible party from CERCLA liability, which even includes liability for any contamination prior to the passage of CERCLA in 1980. 13
The Universal Waste Rule Waste Regulated
Common items that contain hazardous wastes include fluorescent lamps and batteries. There are several categories of materials designated as universal waste: • Batteries • Banned and recalled pesticides • Mercury containing equipment • Lamps
In 1995 the US EPA adopted a set of regulations commonly referred to as the Universal Waste Rule (UWR) in order to promote the recycling and proper disposal of wastes that are widely generated and include certain hazardous materials.
Who Is Regulated Under the UWR, anyone who generates, accumulates or stores universal wastes is classified as a handler of universal wastes. The UWR defines two categories of handlers: small quantity handlers and large quantity handlers.
Veolia Environmental Services’ RECYCLEPAK® meets all UWR requirements.
Requirements The requirements for small and large quantity handlers include: practicing good container management and adhering to restrictions regarding waste types, labeling, dating, inventory control, employee training, waste tracking, export and rejection notifications and US DOT rules. Requirements for universal waste transporters and destination facilities are defined. According to these standards, universal wastes must be packaged in a way that prevents breakage, and packages must be labeled with the words “Universal Waste”, followed by the category of universal waste. Universal wastes cannot be diluted, treated or recycled by handlers. The intentional crushing of lamps is considered treatment under the UWR. All handlers are required to train their employees.
State Regulations Since the adoption of the federal rule, all authorized states have adopted their own universal waste rules or guidance allowing the management of universal wastes under a reduced set of management standards. The UWR also allows individual states to modify the UWR by adding other waste types. Regulations vary from state to state.
Benefits of Recycling Universal Waste By recycling universal wastes, valuable materials can be recovered from the wastes and reused in the manufacture of new products. There is an added benefit to the generator in that recycling universal waste greatly reduces the generator’s long term environmental liability.

Proposed Regulations Pharmaceuticals to be packaged as Universal Waste by Pharmacies Hospitals Physicians’ offices Dentists’ offices Outpatient care centers Ambulatory health care services Residential care facilities Veterinary clinics Other facilities that generate hazardous pharmaceutical wastes
Subpart K for Colleges and Universities • Required Laboratory Management Plan • Laboratory clean-outs annually • Delay identifying hazardous waste determination until waste is removed or within four days of arrival at the onsite central accumulation area • Labeling prior to removal from campus • Removal at least once every six months • Unify sites and EPA ID numbers
EPA has proposed regulatory changes to waste governed under RCRA that could reduce the cost of compliance with RCRA for many types of institutions and industries.
Redefining Solid Waste under RCRA A new definition of “solid waste” under RCRA has been proposed to exclude hazardous secondary materials that are recycled through reclamation. Three categories of materials would be excluded: those generated and reclaimed by the generator; those generated and transferred for reclamation by another company; and those categorized as non-wastes by EPA or an authorized state agency. The new rule reflects court challenges about whether materials are considered solid waste if they are destined for recycling. It also promotes recycling. The EPA estimates that about 5,600 facilities will be affected and 1.5 million tons of hazardous waste will be deregulated or receive reduced regulation. The result is an estimated annual cost savings for industry of $95 million.
Categorizing Pharmaceuticals as Universal Waste It has been proposed that hazardous pharmaceutical wastes be added to the Universal Waste Rule to promote proper disposal of these wastes. Under this rule, it would be necessary for these wastes to be packaged in a way that prevents breakage, and packages must be labeled with the words “Universal Waste”, followed by the waste category. This addition would facilitate collection and proper disposal of pharmaceutical waste and would remove this type of waste from wastewater treatment plants and municipal solid waste landfills. The proposed rule would apply to all types of medical related facilities (see list at left). It is anticipated that collection arrangements would be developed for personal medications, as well.
Revised Standards for Laboratory Waste at Colleges and Universities
EPA has finalized a rule that allows academic entities to manage laboratory waste under a more flexible arrangement. The new Subpart K to EPA’s generator standards in 40 CFR Part 262 provides separate management standards for waste generated and accumulated in college or university laboratories. Changes involve annual laboratory clean outs, when and where waste is designated as hazardous, labeling, accumulation time, and requirements for EPA numbers and multiple sites. The new rule, which is summarized at left, is not effective in RCRA authorized states until it is adopted by each state. 15
Convert Waste to Product Waste Candidates For Fuels Blending or Solvent Recovery Hydrocarbons Active solvents Alcohols For Metals Recycling Metal bearing sludges Electronic waste
Beneficial Reuse Examples Used solvent reused as spray gun wash Spent refractory liner crushed and used as landfill daily cover Wastewater treatment sludges processed to reclaim valuable metals
Veolia ES Technical Solutions has developed several alternatives for beneficial reuse of waste by converting waste to product. Because waste can be exempt from the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) if it is used to produce another product, industry is encouraged to seek positive ways of using waste, rather than simply disposing of it.
From Lowering Costs and Impact to Assuring Sustainability Historically, industry has focused on reducing costs while alleviating environmental impact, which formed the foundation for developing beneficial reuse technology. As the types of materials being reused has broadened and gained acceptance from both industry and regulators, goals have shifted toward sustainability, research has provided more options for how waste can be reused, and there is a significant increase in the types of waste that can be converted into products. When waste is reused, everyone benefits with lower energy use, a reduction in greenhouse gases, conservation of natural resources, decreased disposal costs and, often, more efficient production by using recycled materials.
Increasing Reuse of Waste Solvent waste streams are quite promising candidates for expanding waste reuse. There is a wide variety of manufacturing processes that use solvents, including the electronics, automotive, pharmaceutical and paint industries. Veolia evaluates waste streams individually and recommends alternative uses, many of which are developed through our Solvent Research and Development Laboratory.
Information Sources Veolia Environmental Services is a member of the US Business Council for Sustainable Development, an organization that unites industries to discover ways of reusing waste, rather than disposing of it. Many states have developed their own beneficial use determination criteria, which can be found on the web site for the agency that oversees environmental regulations for each individual state.

Customized Recycling Services The start-up process is easy. An account representative presents a proposal, which includes pricing. Once the proposal is agreed upon, we start scheduling the pick-ups. Depending on your needs, pick-ups can be arranged weekly, quarterly, annually—or whatever is convenient and meets your company’s needs. Once service begins, we can provide the right sized boxes, drums and pails you’ll need to store your waste. When the waste is ready to ship, we dispatch a vehicle, selecting transportation from our fleet of semi trailers, box vans or approved third party transporters, to carry your waste safely to one of our four fully permitted recycling facilities. There, the waste is demanufactured—recyclable components are removed and recycled. These components include metals (e.g., copper, aluminum, steel, mercury) and glasses (e.g., lamp glasses, monitor glass). You receive documentation that verifies environmentally compliant disposal for all waste. It includes tracking documents and details on the materials that were both disposed of and recycled. These documents protect your company from exposure to long-term liability for hazardous waste.
Recycling Batteries Types of Batteries Recycled • AAA, AA, C, D, 9 volt • Alkaline • Lead acid • Lithium / lithium ion • Mercury • Nickel-cadmium • Nickel metal hydride • Silver • Zinc carbon

Hazardous Waste Your outdated electrical equipment, including batteries, may contain hazardous materials, such as heavy metals (e.g., cadmium, lead, or mercury). Most often, this electrical equipment is disposed of as solid waste, and these hazardous materials end up in the environment, either by improper incineration, or by leaching into surface or groundwater. 20
Recycling Lamps and Ballasts Types of Lamps and Ballasts Recycled • Straight fluorescent lamps • Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL’s), u-shape and circular fluorescent lamps • High intensity discharge (HID) lamps • Neon lamps • Shatterproof and other specialty lamps • Broken or crushed lamps • PCB lamp ballasts • Non-PCB lamp ballasts
Environmental Fact Less than 30% of lamps discarded in the United States are currently being recycled. These wastes are being banned from landfills, because they can contaminate our water supply with mercury.
Veolia ES Technical Solutions is one of the largest commercial recyclers of lamps and ballasts in the U.S. With our state-of-the-art equipment, we can process up to 250,000 lamps per day. Our fully permitted facilities offer safe environmental recycling of fluorescent lamps and ballasts in all 50 states.

Everything can be included in our recycling programs—packaging, transportation, tracking documents, waste processing, and written documentation that details what materials were recycled. These programs comply with all environmental regulations.
Regulatory Requirements The following regulations apply to most lighting waste: federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Superfund liability laws and the Universal Waste Rule. See pages 10-14 for detailed information on regulatory requirements.
Hazardous Waste Many lamps contain mercury, which is considered a hazardous substance. When lamps or tubes containing mercury are broken, mercury is released into the air as mercury vapors or into the water through runoff or leaching from landfills.
Recycling Mercury Waste Types of Mercury Waste Recycled • Fluorescent and HID lamps • Electrical devices • Precision instruments • Medical apparatus • Mercury compounds • Dental amalgam • Debris and contaminated soil • Automotive switches • Thermostats
Veolia ES Technical Solutions has developed state-of-the-art distillation and retort technologies that use advanced mechanical and thermal processes to extract the highest possible levels of mercury from a variety of devices. These processes recover valuable materials, and the by-products are recycled and reused to manufacture new products. We reclaim over 99% of mercury from wastes that contain mercury. Our processes are in compliance with EPA, OSHA and state agency requirements. Mercury has traditionally been used in medical and electrical devices, precision instruments and with other elements to form compounds for industrial applications.
Customized Recycling Services Environmental Fact Mercury from one four foot lamp can contaminate 7,000 gallons of water.
A recycling program can be developed to fit your needs, depending upon the quantity of materials you need to recycle. We'll assist you with profiling and can provide containers and labeling in order to transport and dispose of any items containing mercury, safely and legally. We determine the best container size and composition for your waste and coordinate convenient pick-up intervals.

Healthcare Services Best Management Practices Although the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) imposes requirements for the disposal of certain pharmaceutical wastes, environmental responsibility extends beyond regulatory requirements. Veolia ES Technical Solutions can help your facility identify Best Management Practices and implement them in your organization. For example, approximately 5% of commonly used pharmaceuticals are defined as hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and include nine chemotherapeutic agents, epinephrine and warfarin. These regulations have not been updated in over 30 years, and many more drugs that are not subject to the regulations are equally hazardous. Included in this category are over 100 newer chemotherapy drugs, endocrine disruptors and drugs meeting NIOSH hazardous drug criteria. Best Management Practices dictate that these drugs be managed as though they were subject to regulation under RCRA.
Precautionary Principle The Precautionary Principle is an approach to environmental practices that is under consideration by the Science and Environmental Health Network as a basis for environmental and public health policy and is gaining acceptance throughout the scientific community. This approach requires the proponent of an activity that appears to have adverse environmental effects to bear the burden of proving that the activity does not have deleterious consequences. Every healthcare institution must determine whether its disposal practices meet the Precautionary Principle. The Joint Commission has established standards regarding hazardous materials and wastes that accredited institutions must follow. These standards require healthcare institutions to develop a written management plan for hazardous materials and to maintain an inventory list, which identifies related wastes. Healthcare institutions are directed to implement processes that minimize improper disposal of pharmaceutical wastes.

Medical Waste Services Regulated Medical Waste Chemotherapy waste Radioactive biohazardous waste Pharmaceutical waste Sharps waste Chemical sharps waste
Medical Waste Services Staff training Waste segregation containers, labeling Flexible pick-ups Online shipping documents, manifests Recommendations for waste minimization Protocols for regulatory compliance
Veolia ES Technical Solutions provides medical waste disposal services in conjunction with our pharmaceutical waste services. Medical waste treatment can take place at Veolia facilities if the waste is both medical and RCRA, or at audited and approved third party partner facilities. Our third party partners can supply the following services.
Customized Services The process begins by identifying the key services that youâ€™ll need. Once these services are determined, our partners train your staff to assure that waste stream segregation is understood and that procedures are strictly followed. A convenient bin location is important, and they are careful to provide appropriate sizes and shapes, with required labels, packaging and signage. Personnel are thoroughly trained in safety procedures. All waste is tracked through our proprietary computer system, from pick-up at the department where the waste is generated through transfers and treatment to final disposal. Bar coding for waste is available. All shipping documents and manifests can be viewed and downloaded online for documentation. Regular pick-ups are scheduled, but they can be revised as needed. Service is available throughout the U.S. An initial review of your waste streams provides recommendations for reducing waste in order to minimize your costs, including detailed breakdowns of waste and associated costs. They also conduct compliance audits and can help you develop systems for your training records. Disaster planning and emergency preparedness services are also available.
Regulatory Requirements The majority of medical waste generated in the U.S. is regulated at the state and local level, as provided through the Medical Waste Management Act. Environmental Health and Safety agencies in each state have requirements for medical waste segregation, labeling for waste containers, treatment and disposal, and specialized waste, such as chemotherapy, pharmaceutical, radioactive biohazardous and sharps. Our partnerâ€™s representatives understand and stay abreast of any changes in federal, state and local requirements to assure compliance at all regulatory levels.
Pharmaceutical Waste Examples of Waste Managed Chemotherapy Waste DEA Controlled Substances Chloral hydrate, Phentermine Dermal Patches Dual Waste RCRA hazardous and Infectious Expired Pharmaceuticals Hazardous Waste under RCRA P-listed waste, U-listed waste and waste demonstrating ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity P-Listed Pharmaceuticals Arsenic trioxide, Epinephrine, Nicotine, Phentermine, Physostigmine, Physostigmine salicylate, Warfarin >.3% Personal Protective Equipment (Contaminated) RCRA Hazardous Waste (Laboratory) Ignitable, Corrosive, Reactive, Toxic spill materials Partial list of U-Listed Pharmaceuticals Chlorambucil, Cyclophosphamide, Daunomycin, Dichlorodifluoromethane, Diethylstilbestrol, Hexachlorophene, Lindane, Melphalan, Mercury, Mitomycin C, Reserpine, Saccharin, Selenium sulfide, Streptozotocin, Trichloromonofluoromethane
Veolia ES Technical Solutions will determine relevant regulatory requirements for your organization and will identify additional steps to follow under Best Management Practices. In every case, we provide cost effective, environmentally safe practices that can be incorporated into daily routines. Our field technicians undergo extensive and continual training to assure that they are current with all safety, health and environmental requirements.
Customized Services We begin with an on-site waste consultation to assess your current status of compliance. By evaluating your existing systems, including a formulary review, we can target those areas where your facilities may be exposed to regulatory action. Our systems allow online waste shipment tracking for quick access to your waste streams and manifestsâ€” track shipment locations, transport methods and the final disposal location.
Regulatory Requirements When the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted in 1976, industrial waste was the primary focus in controlling waste disposal activities. Management of hazardous pharmaceutical waste is an area that was not targeted at that time but definitely falls under regulatory purview. State regulations may be more stringent than federal requirements and vary by state. Approximately 5% of commonly used pharmaceuticals are defined as hazardous waste under RCRA and include nine chemotherapeutic agents, epinephrine and warfarin. These regulations have not been updated in over 30 years, and many more drugs that are not subject to the regulations are equally hazardous. Included in this category are over 100 newer chemotherapy drugs, endocrine disruptors and drugs meeting NIOSH hazardous drug criteria. Best Management Practices dictate that these drugs be managed as though they were subject to regulation under RCRA.

Mail-back sharps disposal is one of the disposal methods recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Definition of Sharps Sharps include any contaminated sharp instrument used in the medical industry, such as needles, syringes, scalpels, lancets, orthodontic wires, blood tainted knife blades, contaminated broken glassware and glass slides.
Regulatory Requirements The majority of medical waste generated in the U.S. is regulated at the state and local level. State regulations generally cover potentially infectious medical waste, sometimes referred to as regulated medical waste. Sharps are one of the categories of regulated medical waste. Sharps are also regulated under OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, which requires a written Exposure Control Plan to minimize employee exposure to disease and includes placing contaminated sharps into containers immediately after use.
Risk of Exposure to Disease Improper management of discarded needles and other sharps can pose a health risk to the public and waste workers. Improperly discarded needles may expose waste workers to potential needle stick injuries and potential infection. Janitors and housekeepers also risk injury if loose sharps poke through plastic garbage bags. Used needles can transmit serious diseases, such as HIV and hepatitis. 32

Every household, farm and small business in America generates wastes that can be hazardous to human health and the environment. Quite a few common household products contain hazardous chemicals that are poisonous, corrosive, reactive and ozone depleting. Included in this group are many lawn and garden products, automotive and household cleaning products, Freon refrigerants, pharmaceuticals, batteries and most computers and electronic equipment. Veolia has assisted over 2,500 city and county governments across the United States in organizing, promoting and managing household hazardous waste collection programs to assure that these wastes are managed safely and in the most environmentally responsible manner. Wherever possible, we promote recycling, reclamation, and reuse of these chemicals. This approach helps reduce our carbon footprint while protecting human health and the environment.
Customized Community Services Developing effective collection programs for household hazardous waste requires careful planning, publicity, efficient collection systems, and appropriate recycling and disposal. We have organized collections for community household hazardous waste and for specialized waste, such as agricultural, chemicals or pharmaceuticals. Our services include: • Event planning, including site selection, promotion and assistance in proposal preparation • Collection site setup and traffic control • Unloading, segregating and classifying wastes • Packaging, bulking, inventorying and labeling wastes • Manifesting, transporting and recycling or disposal of collected materials • Completion of required reports
Prescription Drug Collection
We have also developed collection programs for unused prescription drugs and other pharmaceuticals. By working with local law enforcement officials to accept controlled substances, we comply with U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency requirements. All collected medications are incinerated at one of Veolia's facilities.
Americans generate 1.6 million tons of household hazardous waste each year.
Veolia Environmental Services provides trained field service teams at your collection event and assures compliance with all applicable regulations when disposing of items. 33

Veolia ES Technical Solutions has four locations with solvent recovery operations, all of which employ state-of-the-art technology to assure high purity results. Batch fractional distillation columns are available for mixed solvent separation, as are thin film evaporators for solids separation and recovery. Processes have been developed to yield selected products up to a 99.5% minimum purity, with a water content under 500 ppm, no uncharacteristic odor, and no color. With extensive distillation experience for a wide variety of solvents, Veolia's technicians understand requirements for almost any industry. Our laboratories include the Reclaim Research and Development Center near our corporate office in Lombard, IL, as well as our production quality control laboratories located at each reclaim facility. The production quality control labs are supported and audited by the corporate Reclaim R & D Center to ensure consistency and compliance with industry, customer and Veolia analytical methods and standards.
Customized Services Veolia performs various analyses to determine which option is best for your business— refine and resell, toll processing, on-site recycling or beneficial reuse at an audited reuser.* First, we conduct a sample analysis to quantify the content of the waste material, including GC/MS, GC/FID, pH, residue upon evaporation, and flashpoint. Veolia can provide a small recovered product sample obtained during an initial pilot plant study that is representative of full-scale production. If necessary, we can also perform a full production trial run on a tanker truck or larger batch size. Our complete bench scale recovery processing is conducted with glass lab scale equipment and includes simple distillation and fractional distillation under design and capability conditions that replicate plant equipment. With the results of our analyses, you can decide whether we should sell the resulting product or return it to you for reuse. Analytical methods and standards are developed for each individual waste stream by our central lab where we continually troubleshoot processes. Product specifications are maintained by the facility lab, which also conducts feedstock and product analysis and certification.

The Veolia audited facility sits on 23 acres and accepts material in bulk tankers, rail cars, totes, cubic yard boxes, palletized consumer packaging and in drums. Containers are stored inside an on-site warehouse.
Ethanol Production Most of the incoming loads are bulk liquids that are received in tanker trucks and stored in the on-site tank farm. The distillation equipment consists of a flash evaporator, which removes excess water and solids, distillation columns, and a molecular sieve. The molecular sieve increases the ethanol concentration of the finished product from 190 to 200 proof (100% ethanol) by removing water. Ethanol is currently being sold to industrial end users and fuel blenders to replace and supplement gasoline. Most gasoline now contains at least 10% ethanol. E85 gasoline contains 85% ethanol and is available in most consumer markets.
Secure Brand Destruction The facility also provides secure brand destruction services for industrial and consumer products. Secure destruction products include bulk liquids, consumer packaged goods, expired products, or products that cannot be sold for other reasons. The products are processed through equipment that destroys the packaging and collects the liquids. The liquids are transferred to the recovery process and the packaging materials are recycled. A state-of-the-art security camera system throughout the facility assures customers of brand protection. Anonymity is guaranteed throughout the process.
Regulatory Requirements One way to exempt industrial ethanol from Subtitle C of the federal Resource Conservation Recovery Act is through reclaiming the material. By recycling your waste and producing ethanol, your waste may become RCRA exempt by eliminating its hazardous waste categorization. Veoliaâ€™s regulatory experts can advise you whether this recycling alternative may be appropriate for your situation.

Veolia Audited Facilities Regulatory Review Site description and history Compliance history Current status of all permits Proof of liability insurance Contingency plan Process descriptions including waste acceptance procedures Acceptable waste codes
Agency File Review NOV's Response correspondence from the facility concerning audits Corrective actions Any documents concerning consent orders or other environmental litigation
Occasionally, Veolia ES Technical Solutions does not have company owned facilities to accommodate proper transportation, disposal or recycling of a particular type of waste. In these cases, we will seek appropriate facilities on your behalf. Once these facilities are located, they must pass a rigorous auditing process in order to be approved for our use. Interviews conducted with key facility personnel are especially important for us in evaluating whether the company promotes a commitment to compliance throughout the entire organization, a key attribute in determining whether the facility will be approved as a Veolia Audited Facility.
Auditing Process The auditing process is designed to verify that a facility is in complete compliance with all federal, state and local agencies prior to approval as a Veolia Audited Facility. The review process is a comprehensive environmental assessment of the facility and includes the following steps. Financial Review The financial health and long term viability of the facility is established by reviewing all financial records. Regulatory Review A Veolia inspector conducts an on-site review of the facility during which extensive information is obtained (see list at left), including any information pertinent to the facility. The on-site visit includes interviews with key facility personnel. Agency File Review Veoliaâ€™s inspector may either conduct a physical file review with appropriate agencies or gather information through phone interviews with authorized agency personnel, computer searches and agency inspection reports. This review usually involves documents detailing agency inspections and results (see list at left), documents detailing any remedial/corrective action issues and/or exceedances of any environmental standards.
Three Year Reviews Approved third party facilities are audited every three years to ensure that acceptable compliance standards are maintained. 61
What to Expect
The Veolia Business Process Getting Started Site Evaluation It's important that we understand your current waste management situation in order to develop a program that meets your specific needs. There are several steps in this initial process. • Discuss needs and objectives—In preparation for the site evaluation, we discuss your waste and your needs for related environmental services, as well as your objectives. • On-site evaluation—Together, we determine your baseline costs to quantify future savings. Then, we conduct a site evaluation by going through each step of your operation to see where the waste is generated and how it is currently handled. • Profile review—After gathering copies of your waste profile sheets and your waste stream analysis, we review them thoroughly. • Employee interviews—We always interview each person responsible for any step in the hazardous waste stream process to gather every relevant detail. • Sampling—When necessary, we obtain samples of the waste. Our goal is to identify opportunities to reduce waste volumes and to reduce your costs. We overlay your needs with our capabilities to determine what services we can offer that will add value to your operation.
Next Steps Written Proposal Once we’ve gathered all the information you have available on your waste, we analyze the data and your existing procedures to determine any opportunities for improvements. We develop a detailed disposal plan to help ensure long term financial security for your company. We then provide a written proposal that details services and costs.
Contract Approval Once you’ve reviewed the proposal, we make any necessary changes and develop a contract. You may also need to provide credit information. Please arrange to tour and audit our treatment facilities.
Preparing for Service There is a great deal of planning required before we begin services. • Establish a Work Group—Representatives must be designated from our organization and yours who are responsible for services.
• Profile Waste Streams— Our on-site teams profile your waste streams and collect samples, as necessary. Then, we’ll obtain approval on each waste stream from the appropriate treatment, storage or disposal facility. • Scheduling—We’ll discuss scheduling needs with you to make sure we understand your operational requirements for pick-ups. Our transportation teams set up a waste removal schedule to maintain compliance with government hazardous waste regulations. Of course, we’re always on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if there’s an emergency or if you need a special pick-up. • Training—Once we’ve identified regulatory requirements and set up necessary systems, we are available to train your staff in a wide variety of environmental courses. Our hazardous waste experts are available to provide technical assistance at every step.
Service Performance Services Begin We monitor and review each step continuously to assure environmental compliance. Quality controls are a routine part of our service.
