    Significance and Use

    4.1 This guide is intended to provide general guidance to HHW programs for accepting and segregating materials, selecting a management method, and packaging materials collected by HHW programs.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) programs for accepting, segregating, and packaging materials collected through HHW programs to minimize the risk associated with managing these materials and to identify applicable regulations. This guide does not address storing, vehicle loading, or transporting collected and packaged materials. This guide does not attempt to define the hazardous nature of materials.

    1.2 Certain existing local, state, and federal regulations apply to HHW program operations. This guide does not replace these existing regulations, and is not intended to be used as the basis for regulations for HHW programs. This guide does not reference all applicable applications, since applicable regulations will vary. HHW programs should research all applicable regulations before establishing a materials collection program.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this guide to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
