Hazardous and Special Materials

Hazardous Materials Disposal
Businesses are required to properly dispose of hazardous materials under state and federal regulations.  Your business may fall into one of several generator categories depending upon the type and quantity of waste generated.  To help your business determine this category and to manage proper disposal of hazardous waste the Centre Region Council of Governments has provided the following links to other agencies for more information.

Many other materials, such as construction and demolition waste, may require special disposal procedures or may even be recycled.
