E.l Introduction

California generators, transporters and treatment, storage and/or disposal facility operators must comply with laws for handling hazardous materials and wastes. The California Department of Health Services (DHS) is the state agency responsible for controlling and monitoring hazardous waste management. This appendix will discuss some of the federal, state, and local laws, regulations and ordinances that apply to generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and/or disposal of hazardous waste.

Summaries of relevant requirements appear in Tables E-4 and E-5. Persons involved in regulated activities should become familiar with the requirements. If needed, additional help can be obtained from the agencies listed elsewhere in this report. Contact those sources for details and updated information.

E.2 Generator Standards

Article 6, Chapter 30, Division 4, Title 22, California Code of Regulations (CCR) details requirements with which all generators of hazardous waste must ordinarily comply. These requirements include the following:

Determine if each generated waste is hazardous.

Obtain an EPA Identification Number.

Prepare a manifest for all off-site shipments of hazardous waste.

Prepare and submit biennial reports covering generator activities of the previous year with respect to hazardous waste.

Comply with requirements for generators who accumulate hazardous wastes outsite, pending off-site shipment within 90 days.

Ship hazardous wastes off-site within 90 days or obtain a hazardous waste storage facility permit from DHS and comply with other requirements applicable to facility operators.

Ensure that prior to shipment off-site, all wastes conform with DHS and Department of Transportation regulations for proper packaging, labeling, and marking.

Pay applicable fees to the California State Board of Equalization for hazardous wastes generated.

The generator is responsible for meeting other requirements that might not be specified in this appendix.

E.2.1 Determination of Waste Classification

The generator of a waste must determine if the waste is hazardous. To do this, the generator must determine if the waste is specifically listed as a hazardous waste (Article 9, CCR), and/or if it is a characteristic hazardous waste (ignitable, corrosive, toxic, reactive) (Article 11, CCR). Certain wastes are also classified as "extremely hazardous wastes." These are listed in Article 9, CCR and their characteristics are identified in Article 11, CCR.

E.2.2 EPA Identification Number

Any generator of hazardous waste must obtain from EPA or DHS an EPA Identification Number. This number must be used on all official documents involving waste generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and/or disposal. This number must also appear on all required reports. A generator shall not offer his hazardous waste to a transporter or to an operator of a treatment, storage, and/or disposal facility who does not have an EPA Identification Number.

E.2.3 Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest ("Manifest")

A generator who offers for transportation a hazardous waste for treatment, storage and/or disposal off-site must prepare a manifest before shipping the waste off-site. The manifest is a multicopied document that allows the generator and the DHS to track shipments of hazardous waste. The manifest also provides the DHS with data on waste generation throughout the state.

The generator must designate on the manifest one facility which is permitted to handle the waste described on the manifest. A copy of each manifest must be sent to the DHS, and another copy must be maintained by the generator for at least three years.

The manifest includes a waste minimization certification. "Large Quantity" generators must certify "...that I have a program in place to reduce the volume and toxicity of waste generated to the degree I have determined to be economically practicable " (This language appears as Item 16 on the Unifoim Hazardous Waste Manifest.) "Small-Quantity" generators must certify that they have made good-faith efforts to minimize waste generation. The generator must also certify that he or she has chosen the safest method of treatment, storage, and/or disposal.

E.2.4 Reports

A generator who ships (currently) 5 tons or more of his hazardous waste off-site during the calendar year shall prepare and submit a biennial report to the DHS by March 1 of each even numbered year. The report covers generator activities with respect to hazardous wastes during the previous calendar year. A separate report must be sent annually to the California State Board of Equalization for taxation purposes.

E.2.5 Packaging, Labeling and Marking Requirements for Generators

Hazardous waste must be packaged in accordance with DHS and Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements prior to shipment to a treatment, storage and/or disposal facility. Marking and labeling must also be in accordance with DOT guidelines. A hazardous waste label must be affixed to all hazardous waste containers.

E.3 Recyclable Hazardous Wastes (Recyclable Materials)

If a hazardous waste such as a spent solvent can be recycled and used on-site, it might be exempt from many of the above listed requirements, as well as from DHS permit requirements. The recycling must generally be done continuously without storing the waste prior to reclamation. The recycled material is not considered a waste. Other conditional exemptions for recycling of hazardous waste also exist (Section 25143.2, California Health and Safety Code [CH&SC]).

The DHS' regulations provide a list of recyclable hazardous wastes and suggest methods for recycling them. If a "recyclable" waste is disposed of, the DHS may require the generator to explain why the waste was not recycled. The generator must respond. (See Section 25175, CH&SC and Sections 66763 and 66796, CCR).

E.4 High BTU Wastes

By 1990, any hazardous waste that is to be disposed and that has a heating value greater than 3000 Btu/lb must be incinerated or go through an equivalent treatment process. Also, in 1990, hazardous wastes destined for disposal and containing volatile organic compounds in concentrations exceeding standards to be determined by DHS must be incinerated or be disposed by an equivalent treatment process.

E.5 "Lab Packs"

Most laboratory-generated waste is disposed of in lab packs. Lab packs are steel drums containing small containers of compatible hazardous wastes. The small containers in the drum are packaged in chemical adsorbent. The drum is then sealed and sent to a hazardous waste landfill. As of July 8, 1989 certain waste chemicals in lab packs are restricted from landfills. Most of these are listed in Table E-2.

If a lab pack includes a hazardous waste that contains any of the elements/compounds at or in excess of any of the limits listed in Table E-2, it cannot be disposed on land on and after July 8, 1989.

E.6 Other State and Federal Statutes and Regulations

There are many federal statutes and regulations requiring compliance. Many of these federal laws are the same as California laws. Some of these federal and state laws are discussed below.

E.6.1 Federal Clean Water Act

The Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) mandates the establishment of pretreatment standards for discharges to "publicly owned treatment works" (POTW). Institutions that are connected to public sewers must comply with the CWA pretreatment standards. This could result in not allowing certain compounds down the drain even if diluted (e.g. formaldehyde cannot be discharged to a POTW even in minute quantities with abundant dilution).

The CWA has also established the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program which regulates discharges to surface waters. The California State Water Resources Control Board and its 9 regional boards carry out the NPDES program in California.

E.6.2 Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act

The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and State occupational safety laws regulate chemical handling on public and private locations. OSHA's "Right-to-Know" provision requires employers to train their employees about hazardous substances they handle. The law applies to paid employees but not necessarily to other individuals. The OSHA "Right-to-Know" provisions (and state "Right-to-Know" laws) have increased the awareness of chemical hazards and they have given impetus to the creation of hazardous waste management programs.

There is currently pending in the California Legislature a bill called the " Student-Right-To-Know" bill which would require educational institutions to develop a safety program for students who handle hazardous materials.

E.6.3 California Proposition 65

Proposition 65 requires private employers to post warnings for persons handling carcinogenic compounds, and restricts all discharges of carcinogenic compounds. This is a new law that at present does not affect public institutions. However, state legislation is pending that will require public institutions to comply.

E.7 Solvent Wastes: Land Disposal Restriction

The 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to RCRA mandated the November 8, 1986 federal restriction on the land disposal of halogenated and non-halogenated solvent wastes. Restricted solvent wastes are numbered F001-F005 as defined in Section 261.31, Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations. On November 7, 1986, EPA announced a conditional extension on the implementation of the restriction. According to the modified restriction, solvent wastes were prohibited from land disposal starting on November 8, 1986, unless one or more of the following conditions applies:

(1) The generator of the solvent waste is a small quantity generator of 100-1000 kg/month of hazardous waste.

(2) The waste contains less than 1 percent total of F001-F005 solvent constituents.

(3) The solvent waste is generated due to cleanup or other remedial action taken under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended.

However, the solvent wastes listed in Items 1 to 3 above are restricted from land disposal effective November 8, 1988.

E.8 Summaries of Pertinent Statutes, Regulations and Ordinances

Table E-5 contains a list of federal, state and local statutes, regulations and ordinances that are relevant to hazardous waste generators. The list includes requirements for raw material handling, waste disposal, air quality control, and discharges to sewers.

E.9 Regulatory Agencies and Information

Appendices G through J identify the regulatory agencies that may be contacted with questions on the management of hazardous wastes. Appendix F has Form DHS 8400 (6/87). This form can be used to obtain copies of California hazardous waste control laws and regulations.

Waste Generation


Shipments of waste must be accompanied by a manifest.


New Process or Process Modification; Material Substitution

On-site Treatment

On-site Recycling

Off-site Recycling

Prepare biennial report concerning the volume of waste generated.

If wastes are temporarily stored on site, the generator must comply with county handling procedures, personnel material requirements, etc.

Generators disposing of "recyclable wastes" might be asked to provide justification for not recycling.

If the new process or process modification involves treatment of a hazardous waste, a treatment, storage and/or disposal (TSD) permit might be necessary. In some cases material substitution may constitute process modification.

Process must comply with fire codes occupational health requirements.

In general, a treatment, storage and/or disposal facility permit is required. DHS may grant variances for activities that are adequately regulated by other agencies or for wastes that are insignificantly hazardous.

Same as above; however, some on-site recycling activities are categorically exempt from permit requirements.

Commercial (i.e., off-site) recycling activities generally require a TSD permit.

DHS, county material regulators

Local fire department,


Commercial recyclers must submit an annual facility DHS







Some resource recovery facilities are eligible for eligible for Series 'A', 'B\ or 'C' resource recovery facility permits in lieu of TSD permits.

In California, several classes of hazardous waste are restricted from land disposal.

A national land disposal restriction program is being implemented.

Disposal facilities must have a TSD permit and comply with technical and financial regulations.

Air Pollution

All devices emitting air pollutants must be permitted or exempted.

If changes in equipment or procedures result in an increase of any pollutant above a specified level, a permit is required.

If certain designated toxic air contaminants are emitted, the generator must comply with rules established under the toxic air contaminant program.

If there is an increase in an "attainment pollutant" by a significant amount (generally 25to 40 tons/yr), a permit may be necessary.

Water Pollution


Discharge of industrial waste to sewer requires a sewer permit.

Discharge of waste to land requires a discharge permit.

Discharge of waste to public waters requires an NPDES permit.
