The waste management administrative regulations apply to the disposal of solid waste and the management of all liquid, semisolid, solid, or gaseous waste defined or identified as hazardous in KRS Chapter 224 or the appropriate administrative regulations by all persons and state and federal agencies who engage in the generation, treatment, storage, or disposal of wastes, including hazardous substances spilled into the environment, that meet the criteria of hazardous waste.

The regulation also sets forth the minimum environmental performance standards with which all waste sites or facilities shall comply. According to KRS Chapter 224, "Hazardous waste" means any discarded material or material intended to be discarded or substance or combination of such substances intended to be discarded, in any form which because of its quantity, concentration or physical, chemical or infectious characteristics may cause, or significantly contribute to an increase in mortality or an increase in serious irreversible, or incapacitating reversible, illness or pose a substantial present or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, or disposed of, or otherwise managed.
