Hazardous Waste Determination
National Summary
Making a hazardous waste determination is the key to the applicability of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste management regulations. One of the most frequently asked questions by generators is, "Is my waste a hazardous waste regulated under RCRA?" If the answer is "no," the RCRA hazardous waste laws and regulations do not apply to the management of that waste. If the answer is "yes," however, the generator and subsequent handlers of the hazardous waste must comply with myriad RCRA rules that are in place in order to ensure the safe management of the hazardous waste.
