Reduction and/or Elimination of Hazardous Waste Generation


National strategies/policies

Continued collaboration with private sector on measures to reduce quantity and toxicity of hazardous waste generated; project proposal for the management of used lead acid batteries approved with St. Lucia chosen as one of the pilot countries; some training and capacity building in the areas of hazardous waste management (PCBs) conducted; consultant report on Hazardous Wastes conducted to inform training needs and further policy development for reduction and/or elimination of hazardous wastes generated at the national level; and management plans have been developed for the following categories of hazardous waste:

Waste oil, Spent agricultural chemicals, Biomedical waste, Asbestos
Equipment for the treatment of biomedical waste have been procured. National training policy programs have been instituted for all health care establishments. Government medical institutions are required to institute site specific biomedical waste management plan. An islandwide collection system has been instituted for all government institutions.
Ongoing dialogue with private healthcare institutions including doctor and dentist offices to extend the collection service.
There exist a private sector initiative involving the collection and export of used lead acid batteries (ULAB). Plans are afoot to build upon this initiative thereby increasing the public involvement in the improvement in the management of ULAB.
The private sector entities are involved in the collection and use of used oil as supplementary fuel. A national strategy which incorporates these agencies has been developed. This is in keeping with the Waste Management Act of 2004 which requires that the Authority develop a strategy in consultation with oil suppliers to address the issue of waste oil. Aspects of this strategy which is currently being instituted include deployment of waste oil storage containers, a requirement that large generators institute a waste oil management plan, and the development of public awareness program.
The Authority has instituted guidelines for the handling and management of asbestos at landfills both at the demolition sites as well as at the landfills.
