    Abstract

    Empresa de Servicios Publicos de Heredia (ESPH) is a utilities company located in Heredia, Costa Rica that supplies potable water, electricity, and public lighting to the citizens of Heredia. As a byproduct of the services ESPH provides, hazardous wastes stored in ESPH's three warehouse facilities have built up to the point where they adversely effect the environment. Once onsite in Costa Rica, we selected two of these hazardous wastes, Polychlorinated Biphenyl containing electrical transformers and mercury-containing HID lamps. Our goal in this project was to offer solutions for better handling and storage for these wastes as well as to compile feasible options for disposal.
