Rules. Alabama follows the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, including the federal conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid and hazardous waste as they apply to cathode-ray tubes and solvent-contaminated wipes and the exclusion from the definition of solid waste for recycling of certain hazardous secondary materials. Check with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) to see whether the state has yet adopted the hazardous waste exclusion for carbon dioxide streams in geologic sequestration activities.

In addition, Alabama subjects polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) disposed of at state commercial hazardous waste facilities to an Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) preapproval process. Refer to the national section HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) for an explanation of the federal rules on hazardous waste classification.
