What are the Non-Hazardous Liquid Waste (NHLW) transportation vehicle regulations?
Vehicles used for the collection, storage, transportation and disposal of non-hazardous liquid waste must have a secure liquid and gas tight NHLW storage tank(s) constructed so that no offensive material may spill or escape from the tank, shall be operated in an approved sanitary manner, minimizing exposure to flies and other insects, spillage, odor, and without other hazard or danger to the public health, shall be cleaned frequently enough to prevent their becoming a public health nuisance, and shall be maintained in good repair.

NHLW storage tanks shall have a minimum capacity of 750 gallons, with the exception of tanks used exclusively for servicing chemical toilets, which may have a smaller capacity. Storage tanks shall not be open or exposed except during filling, emptying and cleaning. Vehicles shall be loaded and moved in such a manner that the contents are not exposed and do not leak, spill or escape. If spillage does occur, it shall be carefully cleaned up and the area affected by the spill properly disinfected.
