Hazardous Waste Generators and Transporters and Facilities

Hazardous Waste Summary

New Jersey’s hazardous waste regulations are found at N.J.A.C. 7:26G-1 et seq., adopted October 21, 1996 and announced at 28 NJR 4606. By this adoption, the Department “incorporated by reference” (with limited exception) the July 1, 1993 version of the Federal hazardous waste regulations at 40 CFR Parts 124, 260-266, 268 and 270, mandated by the Resource and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) and amended by the 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA). Effective January 19, 1999 the Department amended the regulations to allow for prospective incorporation by reference, which means that all provisions of 40 CFR Parts 124, 260-266, 268 and 270 incorporated by reference are continually automatically updated in order to maintain consistency with the most current Federal rules.

The requirements for hazardous waste generators are specifically found at N.J.A.C. 7:26G-6 et seq., which references 40 CFR Part 262 of the Federal regulations (with some exceptions and/or changes).
