• Rules. New Jersey has incorporated by reference the federal rules of 40 CFR 261 for identifying and classifying hazardous waste and does so "prospectively" and "as amended and supplemented" (NJAC 7:26G-5.1(a)). Consequently, New Jersey's hazardous waste identification and classification rules are current with the federal rules with the exception of Appendix IX to 40 CFR 261, which the state has not incorporated. This means that, for example, conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid and/or hazardous waste, such as those for solvent-contaminated wipes, cathode-ray tubes, and carbon dioxide streams in geological sequestration activities, are in effect in New Jersey. In addition, because the state adopted by reference the 2008 definition of solid waste (DSW) rule (concerning the recycling of hazardous secondary materials), the state adopts by reference the subsequent revised rule, the 2015 DSW. See the national section HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) for more information.
The state's additional hazardous waste identification and classification rules are in connection with substituting state terms and citations for federal terms and citations.
