Danox develops and facilitates EPA compliant management plans for all universal waste regulated streams. Our experts design site-specific and customizable procedures to handle your unique waste output.

We assist with:

  • EPA classification and profiling
  • Supply of containment and shipping packaging (including shipping paperwork)
  • Appropriate handling of waste during transportation and processing
  • Reporting data once processed
  • Certificate of Recycle
  • Universal waste mail-in program (if applicable)

Every state has the ability to adopt the universal waste federal regulations or to take a more stringent approach. Furthermore, the quantity and frequency of waste accumulation determines whether companies are subjected to the requirements of a small quantity or large quantity handler of universal waste (SQHUW or LQHUW).

Universal Waste

EPA’s universal waste regulations (40 CFR Part 273) outline appropriate collection and management of many commonly generated wastes that contain hazardous components. Additionally, individual states have or are looking at adding additional categories under the universal waste regulations to help ease regulatory burdens and increase recycling.

Common items that ship under the relaxed universal waste regulations include:

  • Batteries
  • Waste lamps/bulbs
  • Mercury-containing equipment
  • Pesticides
  • Ballast and capacitors
  • E-waste

E-Waste Recycling

Technology changes at a rapid pace leaving companies with outdated computers, phones and other electronic equipment. These electronics often contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals. Instead of sending these items to a landfill, Danox has the ability to recycle your e-waste giving you both brand protection and reduced environmental liability, while helping you reach your sustainability goals.

Common electronic wastes:

  • Telephones
  • Cathode ray tube containing devices (CRT devices)
  • Computer keyboards
  • TV and computer monitors
  • Cell phones
  • Circuit boards
  • Fax machines
