To determine whether your business generates hazardous waste, the handbook entitled, "Managing Your Hazardous Waste: A Guide for Small Businesses" is a good starting reference document.  This handbook is available on the federal Environmental Protection Agency web site at http://www.epa.gov/osw/hazard/generation/sqg/handbook/k01005.pdf.

 

After reviewing the handbook if you have any questions, or if your situation does not appear to be addressed, contact the South Dakota Hazardous Waste section by e-mail or by calling (605) 773-3153.  If you wish to read the South Dakota statutes and regulations pertaining to generators of hazardous waste, visit the South Dakota Environmental Permitting and Regulation Guide or read the following: South Dakota Codified Law 34A-11, Administrative Rules of South Dakota 74:28, and 40 CFR Parts 260-279.
