The Hazardous Waste Management Regulations follow the EPA's definitions and guidelines for the most part, which are listed in 40 CFR parts 260-282. In addition to these federal regulations the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality requires that each generator of greater than 220 pounds of hazardous waste in any month during the previous calendar year shall report, by March 1, to the department the type and amount of waste generated during the preceding calendar year. Also, each transporter of hazardous waste shall report annually by march 1 of each calendar year. These regulations also outline the limits to where a hazardous waste management facility can be placed physically.
