This study analyzes the economic impact of a proposed regulation (R76-10), which is designed to prevent illegal disposal of 'special' wastes by waste haulers. 'Special' wastes have three components: hazardous wastes, pollution control residuals and industrial process effluents. The proposed regulation has two principal parts: (1) A permit requirement for special waste haulers; (2) A manifest system for the generator, hauler and receiver of special waste. The annual permits will require information concerning the type of equipment, vehicle capacity and type of services offered by haulers. The manifest system requires that a document describing the quantity, composition and origin of special waste accompany the waste from generator to final storage, treatment and/or disposal.
