Proving waste retention time is done by properly labeling universal waste.  Universal waste can be removed and taken to any of the following:

  • Household hazardous waste facility
  • “Take-it-Back Partner” such as a retailer or manufacturer collection event
  • Universal waste transporter. Examples:
  • Curbside HHW collection program
  • Package service (e.g., postal service, UPS)
  • Destination facility that offers a pick-up service
  • Universal waste destination facility

Universal wastes do not require a special licence to remove or transport.
