What is a Hazardous Waste Establishment?

According to Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CTDEEP), an Establishment means any real property at which or any business operation from which: (A) on or after November 19, 1980, there was generated, except as the result of remediation of polluted soil, groundwater, or sediment, more than one hundred kilograms of hazardous waste in any one month; (B) hazardous waste generated at a different location was recycled, reclaimed, reused, stored, handled, treated, transported, or disposed of; (C) the process of dry cleaning was conducted on or after May 1, 1967; (D) furniture stripping was conducted on or after May 1, 1967; or (E) a vehicle body repair facility was located on or after May 1, 1967.

Whenever an establishment is transferred, the parties involved in the transfer must comply with the property transfer law. You should carefully review the definitions in CGS Section 22a-134, particularly the definitions of "establishment" and "transfer of establishment," to accurately determine the applicability of the property transfer law to the subject transaction. A transfer generally refers to any change in ownership of the real property and/or business, which meets the definition of establishment.
