Hazardous Waste Program

The Hazardous Waste Tiered Permit Treatment Program ensures the safe and legal treatment of hazardous waste. The purpose of this program is the protection of public health and the environment from exposure to hazardous wastes by regulating the businesses and industries that treat hazardous waste. This is accomplished through a comprehensive program of requiring permits for facilities that treat hazardous waste, reviewing treatment permits and inspecting the treatment process.

All permit forms for this program are now created directly in the CERS database.
