DEQ: Northwest Hazmat stores hazardous waste without permit

This is the update from Oregon Department of Environmental Quality today. Irony duly noted.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has issued a penalty totaling $12,089 to Northwest Hazmat Inc. for storing hazardous waste without a permit and failing to transport hazardous waste to the intended disposal facility. A portion of the penalty reflects the fact that Northwest Hazmat is a professional hazardous waste transporter and provides hazardous waste cleanup services, and consulting and training in hazardous waste management, and therefore is expected to know the regulations.
