If your facility or business generates any hazardous waste, it's important to conduct periodic inspections of the storage and storage areas. For Small and Large Quantity Generators of hazardous waste, it’s a regulatory requirement that these inspections be done weekly. Performing weekly inspections of hazardous waste storage will not only help manage waste streams and minimize the risk of state and federal fines, but it will also help identify any small problems within the storage areas and prevent them from turning into big, costly problems.

The Iowa Waste Reduction Center’s Spray Technique Analysis and Research for Defense (STAR4D) program has gone through many transitions since its start in 2003. The program originally began as a means to provide effective painter training to the U.S. Armed Forces. Now in its 15th year, the STAR4D program continues to provide hands-on painter training to military personnel both on-location as well as our 16,000 ft² facility in the Cedar Falls Industrial Park. Recently, STAR4D has also added the actual painting of military assets to its portfolio helping the U.S. DoD and its contractors address the corrosion of military assets.
