Extremely or Acutely Hazardous Chemical Wastes

Extremely or acutely hazardous wastes are a special category in the waste regulations. The Federal regulations oversee the acutely hazardous wastes while the California regulations oversee the extremely hazardous wastes.

Living in California, we are required to follow both sets of regulations.
