Many industries generate hazardous waste. Some examples of automotive repair shop waste include antifreeze, solvent, and lead acid batteries. EPA regulates hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to ensure these wastes are managed in ways that protect human health and the environment. Generators of hazardous waste are regulated based on the amount of hazardous waste they generate in a calendar month, not the size of their business or facility.
