Entrepreneurs in need of some help manage to hazardous waste can turn to the Hazardous Waste Directory.
The directory is produced and distributed by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County. Call the Business Waste Line at 206-263-8899 to order a copy, or read the directory at www.lhwmp.org/home/YellowBook/index.aspx.
Business owners rely on the directory to determine how to manage hazardous waste. The directory also describes how to receive help, outlines regulations, explains how to choose a disposal or recycling vendor, and more. The directory lists wastes and includes information about handling, recycling, regulations and chemical hazards.
