East Liverpool, Ohio (PRWEB) December 17, 2009
Heritage-WTI, Inc. is pleased to announce that is has received registration status from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for Schedule II through V controlled substances.
“Registration allows for the incineration of DEA-controlled substances without the need for a witness,” Waste Approval Manager Zambia Logero, who supervises this program, said.
Before registration, either the customer or a law enforcement officer would have to be present to witness the incineration of these controlled substances, she explained.
By investing in the training and equipment needed to meet the DEA’s requirements, the company saves both time and money for its customers and the local police department.
Wastes approved for incineration under this registration will be incinerated as they arrive at the facility. In the unlikely event the facility’s rotary kiln is not operating, the materials will be stored securely onsite in the GSA Approved Class 5 Cabinet that Heritage-WTI had installed and was subsequently approved by DEA inspectors.
DEA representatives visited the Heritage-WTI on three separate occasions during their audit.
“The agents rigorously examined our security and operating procedures before issuing their favorable decision,” Logero explained.
