This course was originally approved for 4.0 LSP "non-DEP"/Technical continuing education credits (#1647) but due to a recent course instructor change, the course will need to be re-approved by the LSP Board of Registration (309 CMR 3.09(6)(c)) before a CEU form can be issued. The LSP Board meets next on January 14, 2019, so LSP CEUs for this course will need to be postponed until following that Board meeting. Based on previous experience, the LSPA does not expect an issue with course re-approval due to this one change of presenter. And we would expect the CEU form to be issued to the LSPA promptly, so we can then send it to all course participants. We would not expect this delay to affect those of you whose licenses renew at the end of January 2020. Please email [email protected] with any questions.   

Course Description: 
The remediation of MCP sites often involves the excavation and disposal of contaminated soils and dewatering. The proper management of the soil characterization and disposal process is a significant issue for an LSP to deal with, since mistakes can have dire regulatory and financial consequences.

This four-hour course is designed to assist LSPs in better understanding the regulatory, waste, and facility-specific requirements for properly managing both remediation and hazardous waste when it is sent to off-site recycling/disposal facilities. This aspect of waste management, a key task at MCP sites, is one where the responsibility typically falls to the site LSP who is accordingly obligated to understand the nuances of federal, state, and facility specific requirements. If the LSP understands the waste profiles and acceptance criteria for each of these types of facilities, there is less likelihood of an improper shipment and an improved likelihood that waste packages will be accepted and not require revisions.

The course will focus on:

  • Writing and preparing soil/material packages (including waste profiles) that comply with facility requirements and address facility acceptance criteria.
  • Considerations for when waste is sent to a facility.
  • Common mistakes to avoid and things to remember about shipping to a remediation and hazardous waste facility
  • Overview of the material acceptance process
