Use original containers and labels whenever possible to decrease the risks of spills and exposure. If the container is compromised in any way, use a secondary container to contain the spill. In addition, bring a copy of any SDS’s that pertain to your particular waste. This will cut down the amount of time needed to investigate your hazardous materials.

At the HPC, you will be asked to sign a waste inventory form, stating that you or your driver delivered the hazardous waste to our facility and verify any information we have acquired is correct. HPC staff will then off-load, weigh, and segregate all waste delivered.

As the waste generator, it is the responsibility of the VSQG to follow all applicable regulations regarding identification and transportation of waste to ensure safe and secure delivery of properly labeled and inventoried waste as required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The City of Flagstaff shall not be responsible for any costs and/or liability associated with the VSQG’s failure to comply with these requirements or applicable federal laws.
