5.1 Listed Hazardous Wastes (F, K, U, and P lists)

The EPA has 4 lists of hazardous wastes. DEC has the same listing as the EPA, with one additional list for Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) wastes. Any waste with a contaminant meeting the definition of any of these lists is considered hazardous waste regardless of the hazardous characteristics. The Lists are found in 40 CFR 261 Subpart D and 6 NYCRR 371.4.
