Hazardous Waste Management
Expertise in Connecticut

MCF Environmental Services have been serving medical clinics, laboratories, education institutions and local businesses for more than 30 years, offering specialist waste collection and disposal services for hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams.

Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is the governing body for regulations pertaining to hazardous medical and industrial waste throughout the state. All potential hazardous waste generators should be aware of the processes involved in hazardous waste handling, storage, transportation, and disposal.

A reliable and experienced hazardous waste management company knows that details are important when it comes to waste disposal. It can also be challenging and often confusing to not only find all the rules and regulations to be followed, but their interpretation. For example:

    • Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies (RCSA) Sections 22a-449(c)-100 through 119 are vital. These regulations also follow federal waste regulations per the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR 124 and 40 CFR 260-279).
    • Transporter permit information is found in RCSA Section 22a-449(c)-11.

The entirety of the regulations for the state’s DEEP regulations for hazardous waste management can be found here. Every waste generator – regardless of the size of facility or business – must follow these laws or risk penalties for noncompliance. The laws cover standards for waste generators, transporters, identification of hazardous waste, and information on the hazardous waste permit program.

Connecticut guidelines for hazardous waste

At its most simplistic definition, a hazardous waste consists of one or more of the following characteristics: toxic, ignitable, corrosive, or reactive. Refer to DEEP’s ‘Hazardous Waste Determinations and Knowledge of Process’ to ensure accuracy. Connecticut also supports the regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its laws. Documentation, permits for waste generators and transporters must be filled out accurately and filed in a timely manner. Be aware that Connecticut requires separate permits for the transportation of hazardous and biomedical waste.

Partnering with an experienced and reliable waste management company can help with navigating Connecticut’s laws for hazardous medical and business waste management and associated processes. It is the responsibility of the waste generator to ensure proper and safe measures when dealing with any type of potentially hazardous or infectious waste and to this end MCF Environmental Services supports customers across the country with cradle to grave waste expertise.
