Ohio added four waste streams to the universal waste rules. In addition to lamps, batteries, and mercury containing devices, we now have antifreeze, aerosol containers, paint, and paint-related waste on the list of items that a generator can manage using the reduced requirements for generators. Hear how you can manage universal waste under these rules and possibly reduce your generator status from large quantity generator to small quantity generator thus reducing your Resource Conservation and Recovery Act obligations.

Learning Objectives:
1. Define the Ohio-specific universal waste; antifreeze, aerosol containers, paint, and paint-related waste.
2. Describe the advantages of the universal waste rules.
3. Explain the requirements of the universal waste rules.
