The cannabis industry has a growing problem, and it’s one many businesses don’t consider until they are well underway. Cultivators, processors, and retailers all produce various categories of waste, which under strict track and trace regulations — all require proper handling.

If you’ve read through the various sets of regulations, you aren’t the only one whose gone cross-eyed. Although in reality waste removal is pretty straightforward, the rules can often seem overly-complicated and convoluted.

We sat down with Arman Zeytounyan from EcoWaste, a cannabis waste services company operating in Southern California to get a better idea of how to handle…
