Since 2012, Bluestone has performed satellite accumulation area (SAA) and main accumulation area (MAA) inspections, waste categorization, and waste labeling for this large quantity generator.
NSSC is a research facility and generates a varied and complex waste stream with over 150 SAAs in the Installation. Bluestone has maintained waste profiles with the transportation storage and disposal facility (TSDF) to minimize costs to Installation. TSDF costs were negotiated for multiple container sizes of each material to avoid costs for excess packaging, resulting in substantial cost savings to the Government. Careful attention to waste characterization ensures that non-hazardous waste is not shipped under a hazardous waste manifest. Waste manifests and bills-of-lading are carefully reviewed for compliance with Federal and State regulations and maintained on behalf of the Client. Bluestone has prepared Waste Minimization Plan encompassing material re-use; substitution of less toxic, more sustainable raw materials in processes; and increased recycling for research laboratories and facility maintenance operations for the Installation. We have determined reportable materials and quantities and prepared submittal for facility personnel. Bluestone personnel also conduct monthly SPCC inspections of all outfalls, tanks, and transformers on-site. Provide monthly report of findings to Installation personnel. Audits include training documentation, recordkeeping, waste manifests, as well as inspection of the approximately 150 Satellite Accumulation Areas and the Main Accumulation Area. Audits cover regulatory programs including Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Toxic Substances Control Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and OSHA compliance.
