Inventory and Inspection


Small and large quantity generators shall maintain a list of all hazardous waste currently in storage at a location apart from the short-term storage area. For generators storing hazardous waste in containers, the list shall identify each container being stored and the type of hazardous waste held by each container. Any hazardous waste being accumulated within a short-term storage area must be included on the list of hazardous waste in storage.
