1. Proper Identification - Use proper D.O.T specification for Hazard Class. Verify waste is compatible with container type. Place marking and labels on container when waste is first placed in the container.
2. Clean Containers - Use new or reconditioned containers that meet the Performance Oriented Packaging Standards (POPS). Clean dust, grease, splatters, and smudges from containers tops and sides.
3. Inspect Before Shipping - Inspect to verify that the bung is sealed tightly, ring gasket is secure, and vent cap is sealed. Inspect to ensure absense of creases, ridges, excess rust, dents or crumples.
