Hazardous materials & solid waste

Use this information to investigate, sample, and comply with local and federal laws to safely manage and dispose of hazardous materials like lead, creosote, asbestos, chemically contaminated sediment, releases from underground storage tanks, or other solid waste.

Conduct Hazardous Materials (HazMat) investigations and sampling to identify potential contamination in work areas and document risks.

Use Ecology's Facility/Site Atlas to identify Ecology regulated facilities (Federal Superfund/NPL sites, SHWS/CSCS, LUST and USTs) and solid waste facilities (landfills and transfer stations) in or adjacent to the project area.

Slow down on ice and snow.

It's easier to skid or lose control traveling at higher speeds. Give yourself more time to stop.

Carry chains, practice installing them.

Winter conditions could mean chains are required on your route. Practice putting them on your vehicle ahead of time.

Pack your winter car kit.

Carry extra supplies like warm clothing, ice scraper and brush, jumper cables and other emergency items.
