Hazardous Waste Generator Program
Published on: 4/11/2013 12:00 AM

A "generator" is any person, by site, whose act or process produces hazardous waste or whose act first causes a hazardous waste to become subject to regulation. In Calirornis, there are four characteristics that identify a hazardous waste:

Ignitable

Reactive

Corrosive

Toxic

Retail Hazardous Waste: Products that can no longer be used for their intended purpose are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly. For example, products that are spent (light bulbs, batteries, etc.), spilled, empty (applicable pharmacy containers), damaged or leaking are considered hazardous waste.  The distinction between such products and others is to ensure that hazardouse waste is separated from solid waste.
