Facts for FAQs

Q. How do I know if my waste is hazardous?

A.  All commercial generators of waste are responsible for determining if their waste is hazardous under current state and federal regulations. Wastes considered hazardous can either be designated as such or exhibit hazardous characteristics.

This determination can be achieved through knowledge of the waste or by testing the waste using the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP). See Air Cycle's lamp recycling regulations database for more information or contact your state environmental agency.
