Waste is classified as being hazardous when it displays one or more of the hazardous properties listed in the Second Schedule of the Waste Management Act as amended (e.g. explosive, oxidizing, flammable, irritant, harmful, toxic, carcinogenic). The relevant property or properties are determined by testing or, where applicable, concentration-based criteria.


The revised National Hazardous Waste Management Plan sets out the priorities to be pursued over the next number of years to continually improve the management of hazardous waste in the Republic of Ireland.
