MEADVILLE — The Department of Environmental Protection will offer companies that generate residual waste an opportunity to learn about the commonwealth’s reporting requirements during a free seminar on Wednesday, Nov. 17.
The seminar will be held from 9:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m. at the DEP Northwest Regional Office, 230 Chestnut St., Meadville. Registration will begin at 9 a.m.
“Business owners and operators have many important issues demanding their time, so DEP is presenting this seminar as an aid to managers who have to follow industrial waste handling regulations,” DEP Regional Director Kelly Burch said. “This session is part of DEP’s ongoing outreach to waste generators to help them better understand our reporting requirements.”
The seminar will focus on completing the residual waste Form 26R, the Chemical Analysis of Residual Waste Annual Report by the Generator.
Residual waste generators in Pennsylvania are required to characterize annually the physical properties and chemical composition of each industrial waste that is generated. Form 26R is required to be submitted to DEP and to each solid waste management facility that accepts the waste for processing or disposal.
Since seating is limited and to ensure adequate reference material is available, pre-registration is required. There is no registration fee. Those who wish to attend should contact Cindy Fry or Robert Bechtel by Friday, Nov. 12, at 814-332-6848.
