Universal Waste Laws and Rules for Recycling

Most businesses are surprised to find out that many things they normally throw out have special rules and regulations surrounding their disposal. All it takes is a disgruntled worker to report you to authorities, or a surprise visit from the health inspector to end up with serious fines. Here is a partial list of items your business needs to store, label and dispose of properly.


Fluorescent lamps and tubes, metal halide lamps, sodium vapor lamps. (40 CFR 273)



All household batteries (AAA, AA, C, D), 9-vold batteries, lead-acid batteries, car batteries. (49 CFR 173.102 SP188-190, 49 CFR 173.102 SP 130, 49 CFR 173.159(e), CCR 22 section 66266.81)

Confidential Date Laws | FACTA GLB & HIPPAA



The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) amends the Fair Credit Reporting Act and contains a number of provisions intended to combat identity theft, consumer fraud and related crimes. The Act requires the destruction of papers containing consumer information, affecting nearly every business and organization.


The Propsed Disposal Rule

Proper disposal of consumer information (Section 682.3) requires any person possessing consumer information for a business purpose to dispose of that information securely to ensure no one can access or use it after disposal.



HIPPAA rules apply to most companies and organizations involved in healthcare. The rules hold specified companies and their business associates liable for protecting the privacy and security of health related information.


Gramm Leach Billey (GLB)

GLB is a federal law with a broader scope than HIPPA. It was designed to compel financial institutions to “respect the privacy of its customers and to protect the security and confidentiality of those customers’ non-public personal information.” The language suggests that paper documents containing such personal information should also be protected when in use and safely destroyed when no longer current and usable.


Privacy Act of 1974

The Privacy Act of 1974 prohibits the disclosure of any record that can be retrieved by a personal identifier such as a name or social security number without the written consent of the person in which the information concerns.
