Hazardous Waste Inspection Training (HWIT)

HWIT Program

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) implemented the statewide Hazardous Waste Inspection Training (HWIT) program specifically for hazardous waste generators that are located in Tennessee. The training is designed to facilitate open communication between the regulated community and the State of Tennessee concerning compliance with hazardous waste regulations for generators. 

RCRA 101 Workshop (full day)

Topics discussed in this workshop include criteria for making a hazardous waste determination, the importance of the accuracy of the hazardous waste determination, hazardous waste generator categories, hazardous waste generator requirements, record keeping/reporting, used oil, and universal waste.  The instructor will discuss what to expect during a generator compliance evaluation inspection.

The workshops are not a substitute for the generator annual training requirements identified in the Tennessee Hazardous Waste Regulations. Generator facilities are required to provide appropriate job-specific training.

The next RCRA 101 workshop will be held on February 28, 2023, at the Columbia Environmental Field Office located in Columbia, Tennessee. This training is specific to hazardous waste generators in Tennessee.  Attendance is $199 per person, and student discounts are not offered for this workshop.
