Hazardous cannabis waste is categorized separately from non-hazardous cannabis waste, and furthermore, is treated differently than traditional hazardous waste in that it contains cannabis and its chemical constituents; a Schedule 1 Federally Controlled Substance (FCS). GAIACA is not only an EPA-registered hazardous waste transporter and State-licensed type-11 cannabis distributor but is also equipped with years of experience in hazardous material management and consulting.

We can assist all types of cannabis operators with necessary duties such as hazardous waste management program development, generator identification and registration, waste profiling, and disposal. GAIACA will ensure that all hazardous cannabis waste is properly handled, stored, transported, documented, and disposed of with respect to the Federal, State, and local government.

For hazardous waste, we drop off closed-top waste barrels (like pictured above) and pick them up from the operator as an a la carte or subscription service. We then transport the hazardous waste and dispose of at a permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF). We complete the hazardous waste manifest and submit it to the State on behalf of the operator. Hazardous waste includes but is not limited to solvents, machine oils, pesticides, and reagents.
