• Rules. Connecticut has adopted most of the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, with some additions that make some classification rules more stringent. The state's stricter classifications affect the recycling and speculative accumulation rules. In addition, because Connecticut has not adopted all of the waste and hazardous waste exclusions that are available under the federal rules, the state's waste determination rules are stricter than their federal counterparts. For example, because the state regulations do not incorporate by reference the most recent federal regulations, federal exemptions from the definitions of solid and hazardous waste, such as the conditional exemptions for cathode-ray tubes and for solvent-contaminated wipes, are not in effect in Connecticut.
Connecticut does not include in its hazardous waste regulatory program numerous federally listed wastes. See the state section
