Criteria for specially controlled industrial waste

When you input the data for manifest slip for requesting disposal of chemically hazardous waste from UTCIMS, you need to select “specially controlled industrial waste” or “other industrial waste.” The following is a summary for how to identify chemically hazardous waste classified as “Specially Controlled Industrial Waste.”

  • Specially Controlled Industrial Waste: Class-A, B, C, D, E, F, H, J, and S
  • Other Industrial Waste: Class-G and I
  • Waste for which the type is determined by pH and composition: Class-K and L

In the case of class-K and L wastes, they should be treated as “specially controlled industrial waste” if any of the judgement criteria shown below is met, and if not they should be treated as “other industrial waste”.

◆ Class-K waste with pH 2.0 or lower
◆ Class-K waste with pH 12.5 or higher
◆ Class-K or L waste containing any of the following substances:

Cadmium, lead, organic phosphorus, hexavalent chromium, arsenic, selenium, cyanide compounds, trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, dichloromethane, carbon tetrachloride, 1,2-dichloroethane, 1,1-dichloroethylene, cis-1,2-dichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, 1,1,2-trichloroethane, 1,3-dichloropropene, benzene, thiuram, simazine, thiobencarb, dioxins, 1,4-dioxane
