  • Persons who generate and wish to process or dispose of a special waste must make application to the Commissioner for waste evaluation. Also such persons who generate and wish to process or dispose of sludges, bulky wastes, pesticide wastes, medical wastes…must make application to the Commissioner for waste evaluation unless the Commissioner determines such is not necessary.
