What is hazardous waste?
Hazardous waste is considered a dangerous contaminant when it is no longer being used for its intended purpose. These wastes have the potential to harm human health or the environment. They range from paints, oils and solvents to acids, heavy-metal containing sludges and pesticides.
How do I register as a hazardous waste carrier or generator?
Hazardous wastes must be handled or disposed of properly to prevent harm to human health and safety and to the environment.
If you are generating or carrying hazardous waste in the NWT, you are required to register with the Government of the Northwest Territories to obtain a generator or carrier number.
