- Pose a substantial present or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored or disposed of, or otherwise mismanaged;
- Cause or contribute to an increase in mortality, or an increase in irreversible or incapacitating illness.
- A waste is classified as a hazardous waste, if it has a hazardous characteristic listed below or is listed as a hazardous waste in EPA's page with the list of identifies hazardous wastes.
Hazardous waste can be characterized as: Ignitable Hazardous Waste, Corrosive Hazardous Waste,
Reactive Hazardous Waste, or Toxic Hazardous Waste.

HWM-10 30 TAC 335.10 40 CFR 262.20-262.23   Shipping and Reporting Procedures Applicable to Generators of HW Requirements to use hazardous waste manifest for all hazardous waste shipments Hazardous Waste Manifest is a form prepared by all generators who transport, or offer for transport, hazardous waste for off-site treatment, recycling, storage, or disposal. Currently, the manifest is a paper document containing multiple copies of a single form. When completed, it contains information on the type and quantity of the waste being transported, instructions for handling the waste, and signature lines for all parties involved in the disposal process. The manifest is required by both Department of Transportation and EPA. Each party that handles the waste signs the manifest and retains a copy for themselves. Once the waste reaches its destination, the receiving facility returns a signed copy of the manifest to the generator, confirming that the waste has been received by the designated facility.
