EQ was approached by ArcelorMittal to help facilitate a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) day for their employees on June 1, 2011. Together, the companies were able to throw a successful event leaving a positive impact on our customers and their employees.
The EQ Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program is an all-inclusive safe alternative for residents to properly dispose of household chemicals. We accept a large variety of waste ranging from latex and oil based paints to automotive and household batteries. These different types of wastes are transported and disposed by EQ’s trained professionals.
At the event ArcelorMittal was able to collect 247 vehicles containing a wide variety of waste; this is more than double the amount that participated in their previous events. ArcelorMittal acknowledged that much of this event’s success was due to the contribution of EQ’s HHW team.
Hosting an HHW day for your own company is a great way to bring together the employees while helping better our environment. The disposal of these wastes can help prevent the contamination of soil and groundwater in your local community.
