Pollution Prevention

Businesses and industries in Sumner produce and ship products and provide services of all kinds. In doing business we generate dangerous waste. Dangerous waste, also known as hazardous waste, harms our environment. Managing it properly keeps it out of our water, ground and community we call home.

Your business likely generates dangerous waste (see WAC 173-303-020). That means the business produces waste that cannot go in the garbage or down the drain. You are required to treat, store, and dispose of such waste in compliance with Washington State Department of Ecology Dangerous Waste Regulations (WAC 173-303) AND City of Sumner Code.

We can help Sumner businesses with ways to properly dispose of and store dangerous waste. Managing dangerous waste reduces cost, improves processes, reduces liability, protects employees, and benefits the community. In partnership with Washington State Department of Ecology, the Pollution Prevention Assistance Program conducts technical assistance visits to businesses throughout the city. The program provides information on best management practices that help businesses meet regulatory requirements and protect the environment.

We help businesses:

BE AWARE

  • what dangerous waste is generated or stored on site
  • what is exempt, excluded and/or listed
  • what is the impact of dangerous waste and benefit of its proper management
