Mississippi adopts by reference the federal rules for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, including the conditional exclusion from the definition of solid waste for cathode-ray tubes, the conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid and hazardous waste for solvent-contaminated wipes, and the hazardous waste exclusion for carbon dioxide streams in geological sequestration activities.
