Hazardous Waste Inspection Training (HWIT)

HWIT Program

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) implemented our statewide Hazardous Waste Inspection Training (HWIT) program for hazardous waste generators. The training aims to improve customer compliance in hazardous waste inspections by clarifying the expectations of inspectors in accordance with DSWM policy and state regulations. Topics discussed in this class will include waste determinations, generator classification, generator requirements, record keeping/reporting, used oil, and universal waste. Additionally, the instructor will discuss what to expect during a generator compliance evaluation inspection. These workshops are not a substitute for the generator annual training requirements identified in the Tennessee Hazardous Waste Regulations.

Due to a higher volume of customers requesting RCRA 101 training, we will be changing our August 18, 2021 class to a 8-hour RCRA 101 class to include the New Generator Improvement Rule (New GIR) and Universal Waste regulation updates. We will not be accepting new registrations for our July 28 class in Knoxville and request those registered attend the extended August 18 class at Montgomery Bell. This means the class will be at a reduced rate of $98.00 versus the original cost of $299.  If you previously registered for a class and was not able to attend, please reach out to Rebekah Poston to be added to the class list.  The class will be in person provided current COVID restrictions do not change. Persons not vaccinated are encouraged to still wear masks.
