Factoids

Portland Metro HHW Operating Factors

 

Overall staffing requirements: 1 hour = 40 pounds of waste including receiving, sorting, testing of unknowns, bulking, lab packing, shipping, training, minor maintenance, supply ordering, safety meetings.

Pounds per customer load = 70 pounds.

0.85 full-time equivalent staff positions for every 1,000 customers served.

Derived from Jim Quinn’s message to national HHW list serve 4/6/2005.

 

 

Miscellaneous Paint Shipping and Recycling Operating Factors

32 – 1 gallon paint cans = 55 gallon drum

Latex Paint Recycling – number of colors to separate for blending into a quality, marketable product

Victoriaville, Quebec (Laurentide) – 16

Portland, Oregon - 15

Amazon Paint Recycler (US) – 12

Chittenden Co. Vermont - 10

 

Landfill Compactor Destroyed in NH, Flammable HHW suspected

 

In the Spring of 1997 the City of Keene, N.H. “lost a $250,000 compactor because of a fire in the landfill. The cause of the fire is believed to be the result of someone putting some flammable HHW into their truck which ultimately found its way to the landfill.”

Excerpt from “A Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center”, Lakes Region Planning Commission, Meredith, N.H., prepared for the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, Concord, N.H., December 1998, p.12.

 

 

 

Local HW Program in King County, WA - Mission

 

The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County (the Program) is a regional partnership of local governments. Our Mission is to protect and enhance public health and environmental quality throughout King County by reducing the threat posed by the production, use, storage and disposal of hazardous materials.
