Often times, laboratory analysis is not necessary as we may be disposing of an unused product, paint, and an array of items which can be readily identified. Therefore, through generator and process knowledge, analysis may be omitted. This, of course, is at the discretion of the recycle or waste disposal facility. On the flip side, if the material is completely unknown, OMI Environmental Solutions (OMI) has a solution as well. We have technicians trained in EPA sample methodology that will wear the proper PPE and collect a 40 ml sample of the unknown substance. This sample is shipped to a laboratory that can qualitatively identify all components within the substance, as well as any hazardous characteristics the substance may exhibit. In essence, we are provided with all information required to properly profile and dispose of the waste and all for less than half the cost of a TCLP analysis.
