Audience: SW Operators
This workshop is designed for solid waste operators who handle batteries of any kind or who may come into contact with household hazardous waste. Instructors will focus on the different types of batteries that solid waste operators may encounter, the hazards that occur with each type and the disposal options for batteries. Discussion will also include managing fires that occur from batteries. Attendees will also learn about household hazardous waste basics.
Attendees are encouraged to send the SWOT Coordinator (SWOT@des.nh.gov) photos of odd batteries received at the facility.
