Hazardous waste rules
All hazardous waste generators must comply with basic management requirements that provide for the safe handling and proper disposal of all hazardous waste.
Additional requirements apply to certain generator size categories, which are determined by the quantity of waste generated. The larger the generator, the more extensive the requirements.
To ensure compliance, hazardous waste generators are subject to unannounced inspections. Generators may face fines or court appearances if they are not in compliance with the hazardous waste rules.
