  • Review the approval procedures
  • Complete the corresponding Waste Stream Information Sheet
  • Provide copies of Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) analytical results from an CAEAL Accredited Facility if you are required to test your waste (i.e. soils, industrial process waste.)
