Avoid Costly Penalties with Hands-On Training on Hazardous Waste Management Rules

Author: Lion Technology Inc.
Dateline: New York, New York (NEW YORK, N.Y.)  | Mon, 03 May 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Lion Technology Inc., a nationally recognized regulatory compliance training firm, will present its two-day Hazardous/Toxic Waste Management workshop series during the month of June 2010. The course is designed for compliance professionals who must be trained annually under the RCRA hazardous waste regulations. Workshops will be held in Portsmouth, Boston, Albany, Hartford, Northern NJ, Baltimore and Philadelphia.”



A R T I C L E:

Lion Technology Inc., a nationally recognized regulatory compliance training firm, will present its two-day Hazardous/Toxic Waste Management workshop series during the month of June. The course is designed for compliance professionals who must be trained annually under the RCRA hazardous waste regulations. Workshops will be held in Portsmouth, NH on June 3-4; Boston, MA on June 7-8; Albany, NY on June 10-11; Hartford, CT on June 14-15; Northern NJ on June 17-18; Baltimore, MD on June 21-22; and Philadelphia, PA on June 24-25, 2010.

The workshop provides hands-on application of the Federal Hazardous Waste Regulations (40 CFR 206-279). Students learn how to identify regulated waste, properly handle and store waste on site, prepare waste for off-site shipping, protect their site in the event of an emergency, keep records, and prepare their site for new regulatory changes. Students will also learn the additional State-specific variations to the Federal requirements.

Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, a national expert on hazardous waste management, stresses that proper hazardous waste handling, management, and disposal is critical, especially in light of rising enforcement, which is now $37,500 per day/per violation.

The company has become recognized for its retail innovations, and for presenting a complete collection of beautiful and affordable green home furnishings and decor that meet stringent eco-friendly standards.

A R T I C L E:

Stylish and innovative eco-retailer bambeco (www.bambeco.com), which launched on Earth Day 2009, is celebrating a banner first year. The company has become recognized for its retail innovations, and for presenting a complete collection of beautiful and affordable green home furnishings and decor that meet stringent eco-friendly standards. This commitment has created a retail destination that consumers trust.

During Earth Day 2010, bambeco will co-sponsor a series of events in NYC in partnership with LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability), the leading organization for businesses geared to conscious consumers. Bambeco will engage with the larger LOHAS community and provide insights into the current and future green marketplace, one that enables consumers to make meaningful purchasing decisions that reflect their values.

"Bambeco reflects many of the values that make LOHAS businesses unique, making it a perfect partner," said LOHAS Executive Director Ted Ning. "They embody cutting edge style and design enhanced by the sustainable and eco-friendly ethos behind every product."

The driving vision behind bambeco has been to offer consumers a compelling green alternative that offers price, quality, and style comparable to that of a traditional product offering. "We understand that most of us want to make earth friendly purchasing decisions. However, in this economic climate, we are not always willing or able to pay for our values," said Susan Aplin, CEO of bambeco. "At bambeco, consumers don't have to pay a premium to live their eco values."

The industry has also taken note of bambeco's early success engaging customers and winning followers. Bambeco was named a 2010 Internet Retailer Hot 100 winner for its ability to engage with its customers and establish a significant presence as an e-tailer.

A R T I C L E:

To celebrate Earth Day, Green Smoke announced this week that a portion of all kits sales made on Earth Day will be donated to a "Green Charity." Green Smoke's Earth Day donation is designed to help the environment and help smokers to go green!

E-cigarettes are an alternative to tobacco cigarettes. In addition to being better for the overall environment and smokers, they are also easier on people's wallets.

"In many parts of the country, a pack of cigarettes is nearing $8.00 or more," says Larry Gershon, Green Smoke executive. "That's why more and more people are choosing e-cigarettes. Although the upfront cost is higher, the yearly savings are remarkable."

So, smokers who want to go green this Earth Day will not only be doing something good for the environment, they may be making their wallet a little greener too.

E-cigarettes are also smoke and odor free, making them ideal to smoke anywhere and anytime. Smokers can now enjoy the taste, look and feel of a tobacco cigarette even in no smoking zones.

They also come in a variety of nicotine levels. Smokers will continue to experience that smoking sensation and nicotine fix that they enjoy, but without any actual smoke, tar, carbon monoxide and other thousands of toxic elements found in tobacco cigarettes.

About Green Smoke:

Green Smoke offers quality electronic cigarettes with disposable cartridges. Their e-cigarettes produce the highest smoke volume in the industry. They offer a wide variety of flavors and nicotine levels. Green Smoke's 2 part electric cigarette technology offers convenience and performance that is unmatched.
