GLRPPR Sector Resource: Electroplating Shops - Watch Your Waste!

Title:
Electroplating Shops - Watch Your Waste!

Abstract:
Electroplating wastes are potentially hazardous to human health and the environment when they are improperly managed. Several special and hazardous wastes are commonly generated by the electroplating industry. The "Do I Have a Special Waste?" fact sheet defines and discusses special wastes. In Illinois, electroplating wastes are special wastes because they are industrial process wastes and may also be hazardous. This fact sheet will help you determine the hazardous waste, air, and water regulations that apply to your electroplating operations and how to properly manage your waste to protect your employees, the community, and the environment.
