NR 673.52(1)(1)A universal waste transporter shall comply with all applicable U.S. department of transportation regulations in 49 CFR parts 171 to 180 for transport of any universal waste that meets the definition of hazardous material in 49 CFR 171.8. For purposes of the U.S. department of transportation regulations, a material is considered a hazardous waste if it is subject to the EPA hazardous waste manifest requirements in 40 CFR part 262. Because universal waste does not require a hazardous waste manifest, it is not considered hazardous waste under the U.S. department of transportation regulations.
NR 673.52(2) (2)Some universal waste materials are regulated by the U.S. department of transportation as hazardous materials because they meet the criteria for one or more hazard classes specified in 49 CFR 173.2. As universal waste shipments do not require a manifest under 40 CFR part 262, they may not be described by the U.S. department of transportation proper shipping name “hazardous waste, (l) or (s), n.o.s.", nor may the hazardous material's proper shipping name be modified by adding the word “waste".

subch. G of ch. NR 673 Subchapter G — Petitions to Include Other Wastes under this Chapter
NR 673.80 NR 673.80 General.
NR 673.80(1)(1)Except as provided in sub. (4), any person seeking to add a hazardous waste or a category of hazardous waste to this chapter may petition for a rule amendment under this subchapter and ss. NR 660.20 and 660.23.
NR 673.80(2) (2)To be successful, the petitioner shall demonstrate to the satisfaction of the department that regulation under the universal waste rules of this chapter is appropriate for the waste or category of waste, will improve management practices for the waste or category of waste and will improve implementation of the hazardous waste program. The petition shall include the information required by s. NR 660.20. The petition shall also address as many of the factors listed in s. NR 673.81 as are appropriate for the waste or waste category addressed in the petition.
NR 673.80(3) (3)The department will evaluate petitions using the factors listed in s. NR 673.81. The department will grant or deny a petition using the factors listed in s. NR 673.81. The decision will be based on the weight of evidence showing that regulation under this chapter is appropriate for the waste or category of waste, will improve management practices for the waste or category of waste and will improve implementation of the hazardous waste program.
NR 673.80(4) (4) Hazardous waste pharmaceuticals are regulated under subch. P of ch. NR 666, and may not be added as a category of hazardous waste for management under this chapter.
NR 673.80 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06; CR 19-082: am. (1), cr. (4) Register August 2020 No. 776, eff. 9-1-20.
NR 673.81 NR 673.81 Factors for petitions to include other wastes under this chapter.
NR 673.81(1)(1)The waste or category of waste, as generated by a wide variety of generators, is listed in subch. D of ch. NR 661 or, if not listed, a proportion of the waste stream exhibits one or more characteristics of hazardous waste identified in subch. C of ch. NR 661. (When a characteristic waste is added to the universal waste rules of this chapter by using a generic name to identify the waste category (e.g., batteries), the department will amend the definition of universal waste in ss. NR 660.10 and 673.09 to include only the hazardous waste portion of the waste category (e.g., hazardous waste batteries).) Thus, only the portion of the waste stream that does exhibit one or more characteristics (i.e., is hazardous waste) is subject to the universal waste rules of this chapter.
NR 673.81(2) (2)The waste or category of waste is not exclusive to a specific industry or group of industries, is commonly generated by a wide variety of types of establishments (including, for example, households, retail and commercial businesses, office complexes, very small quantity generators, small businesses, government organizations, as well as large industrial facilities).
NR 673.81(3) (3)The waste or category of waste is generated by a large number of generators (e.g., more than 1,000 nationally) and is frequently generated in relatively small quantities by each generator.
NR 673.81(4) (4)Systems to be used for collecting the waste or category of waste (including packaging, marking and labeling practices) would ensure close stewardship of the waste.
NR 673.81(5) (5)The risk posed by the waste or category of waste during accumulation and transport is relatively low compared to other hazardous wastes, and specific management standards proposed or referenced by the petitioner (e.g., waste management requirements appropriate to be added to ss. NR 673.13, 673.33 and 673.52 or applicable U.S. department of transportation requirements) would be protective of human health and the environment during accumulation and transport.
NR 673.81(6) (6)Regulation of the waste or category of waste under this chapter will increase the likelihood that the waste will be diverted from non-hazardous waste management systems (e.g., the municipal waste stream, non-hazardous industrial or commercial waste stream, municipal sewer or stormwater systems) to recycling, treatment or disposal in compliance with ch. 291, Stats., and chs. NR 660 to 670.
NR 673.81(7) (7)Regulation of the waste or category of waste under this chapter will improve implementation of and compliance with the hazardous waste regulatory program.
NR 673.81(8) (8)Other factors as may be appropriate .
