Managing Hazardous Waste

We strengthen regulations and streamline waste management

Hazardous Waste Policies & Procedures

The DTSC Hazardous Waste Management Program has completed a review of its existing Management Memos. As a result of this review, the program plans to rescind or revise several Management Memos. Many of those to be rescinded have been, or will be, replaced with more current and appropriate documents. Hazardous Waste Management will post copies of all signed and issued replacement documents on this page. Also, each revised Management Memo will be posted on the Web site for two weeks prior to the planned final issuance date.
