Trash Disposal in Retail Operations Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Let’s face it. People produce a lot of trash. Retail operations use and throw away thousands of tons of material every day. In addition to the environmental impact of all that trash, some waste products can be hazardous and have to be handled properly in order to avoid harming sanitation workers or polluting the environment. Equipment such as trash compactors and cardboard balers can also pose hazards to workers. This course is designed for retail and grocery employees who will be responsible for collecting, sorting, or disposing of trash and recycling, and features examples and scenarios tailored to the retail industry. During the course, employees will get an overview of the different types of municipal solid waste typically generated by retail and grocery operations, and the laws regarding collection and disposal of those wastes. The course will also discuss appropriate safety procedures for processing and handling waste. This course focuses on typical retail waste streams. Employers who generate hazardous wastes may also be interested in our Hazardous Waste Awareness course.
