Hazardous Waste Section

What We Do

The primary purpose of the Hazardous Waste Section is to prevent and reduce releases of hazardous substances and clean up contaminated sites. 

The Hazardous Waste Section ensures the safe management of hazardous waste in North Carolina. We apply the adopted federal rules that incorporate the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requirements and additional state rules. The Hazardous Waste Section has two branches, the Facility Management Branch and the Compliance Branch. In addition the Section has an administrative support unit, the Financial and Information Management Unit.
