What are the pre-shipping requirements for universal waste?
  • Handlers of universal waste are prohibited from sending or taking universal waste to a place other than another universal waste handler, a destination facility, or a foreign destination.

Handlers of universal waste are prohibited from sending or taking universal waste to a place other than another universal waste handler, a destination facility, or a foreign destination.

If an organization self-transports universal waste offsite, it becomes a universal waste transporter for those self-transportation activities and must comply with the transporter requirements for transporting the universal waste.

Before sending a shipment of universal waste to another universal waste handler, a facility must ensure that the receiving handler agrees to receive the shipment.

Reminder: Small quantity handlers of universal waste (SQHUWs) are not required to keep records of shipments of universal waste, but it’s a best practice to do it anyway.
