The generator is the first element of the RCRA cradle-to-grave concept, which includes generators, transporters, treatment plants, storage facilities, and disposal sites. Generators of more than 100 kg of hazardous waste or 1 kg of acutely hazardous waste per month must, with a few exceptions, comply with all generator regulations.
Hazardous waste generators must comply with all DOT legislation regulating transport of hazardous materials, as well as other hazardous waste regulations promulgated by both DOT and the EPA. Table 11.10.1 summarizes the requirements, indicates the agency responsible for compliance, and provides a reference to the Code of Federal Regulations.
