Hazardous Materials Management
Over the past 10 years, Sea-Tac has successfully reduced the amount of hazardous waste generated by 80%. Going forward, we intend to continue reducing airport hazardous materials usage through better tracking and management of these materials.
The Port’s Hazardous Waste Program is designed to ensure proper management of hazardous waste streams through education, collection and technical assistance efforts that emphasize the reduction, recycling and reuse of the hazardous waste streams.
There are training courses and onsite instruction on proper collection, handling and accumulation methods; government requirements; and current Best Management Practices.
