Waste Management

What is Hazardous Waste?

Hazardous waste is a waste with properties that make it potentially dangerous or harmful to human health or the environment. The universe of hazardous wastes is large and diverse.

Hazardous wastes can be:

  • Liquids, solids, or contained gases.
  • They can be the by-products of manufacturing processes, discarded used materials, or discarded unused commercial products, such as cleaning fluids (solvents) or pesticides.


In regulatory terms, hazardous waste is a waste that appears on one of the four RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) hazardous wastes lists (the F-list, K-list, P-list, or U-list) or that exhibits one of the four characteristics of a hazardous waste – ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity. However, materials can be hazardous wastes even if they are not specifically listed or don’t exhibit any characteristic of a hazardous waste. For example, “used oil,” products which contain materials on California’s M-list, materials regulated pursuant to the mixture or derived-from rules, and contaminated soil generated from a “clean up” can also be hazardous wastes.

To view the hazardous waste regulations and statutes, go to the DTSC Laws page. See the list of California Hazardous Waste Codes for a complete list of codes. Note: “Hazardous waste regulations,” as used on this web page, refers to Chapters 10 through 32 of Division 4.5 of Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations.
