Shoptalk is Ecology's dangerous waste and pollution prevention newsletter. This publication comes out three times a year with information on training, best practices, rulemaking, and reporting deadlines. Shoptalk is produced by our Hazardous Waste and Toxics Reduction Program

Your business is liable for the dangerous waste you generate. If you're uncertain about your responsibilities as a dangerous waste generator, speak with a dangerous waste specialist from your local Ecology office.
