School Inspection Program

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The SQG Program provides significant compliance assistance to the School District of Hillsborough County through the School Inspection Program.  Schools have numerous operations that may result in the generation of hazardous waste.  The most obvious waste is chemical waste from laboratories, but could also include wastes from wood or metal working classes, wastes from vocational or technical programs, as well as wastes associated with facility management, like spent lamps.

The objective of this program is to ensure that our public schools are managing and disposing of waste in an appropriate manner.   The School Inspection Program will be expanding soon to include private schools.
