Understanding the Hazardous Waste Rules: A Handbook for Small Business can help a small business determine whether it generates hazardous waste. Written by the U.S. EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response in 1996, the tool provides comprehensive information on how to comply with the federal hazardous-waste regulations for small-quantity generators. It also explains how to obtain an EPA identification number, manage hazardous waste on site, ship hazardous waste off site, comply with land-disposal restrictions, and conduct good housekeeping.
