Reverse Logistics Shipments of Hazardous Materials

DOT has established streamlined alternatives for the safe return (reverse logistics) of hazardous materials from retail outlets back to a distribution or reclamation facility.


When retail outlets need to return hazardous products to receive manufacturer’s credit due to a recall, for replacement, recycling, or a similar reason, store employees need only comply with DOT’s relaxed requirements for product classification, packaging, and marking. This rule also expands a previously existing exception for shipments of lead acid batteries for the purpose of recycling.


Attend this live, interactive webcast to learn:

  • What hazardous retail products qualify for the new exceptions
  • Quantity limits

  • Options for handling damaged goods
  • What marks and labels are required on each package
  • Employee training requirements
  • What “clear instructions” must be given to employees that prepare return shipments
