This course is intended to provide multiple aspects of hazardous waste and materials management. The student will develop familiarity with local, state, and federal regulations that govern waste; discuss internal and external environmental site audits; and examine future trends in the generation, treatment, and storage of wastes. Emphasis will be placed on generation of hazardous wastes; treatment and reuse to reduce human environmental health risks; and how residual wastes should be stored to minimize health risks. Mechanisms of how wastes cause disease and environmental resource degradation will be presented.
