The Department has provided a mechanism by which waste-derived products can be certified for distribution and use. Once a waste-derived product is certified, it is no longer regulated as a solid waste until it is itself discarded. The procedures for certifying a waste-derived product are found in Env-Sw 1500 of the Solid Waste Rules.
Some waste-derived products have been certified by rule. These can be found in Env-Sw 1503 of the Solid Waste Rules. Other waste-derived products that have gone through the certification process are listed below. If you have questions, please contact the Solid Waste management Bureau at (603) 271-2925, or email SolidWasteInfo@des.nh.gov.
