EPA Waste Code Descriptions The EPA has defined environmentally hazardous waste into Waste Codes that reflect the waste contaminants or source. Waste must be classified prior to collection and transport. It is the responsibility of the waste producer/generator to classify the waste type. All possible contaminants must be identified, which may require having laboratory test analysis performed.
