"Solid waste facilities in Indiana fall into two broad categories: disposal facilities and processing facilities. Solid waste managed at those facilities can be classified as either municipal solid waste, construction-demolition waste, special waste, or other wastes. IDEM's Office of Land Quality (OLQ) regulates these facilities and waste types in Indiana."
"Solid waste is any garbage, refuse, sludge, or other discarded material, including solid, liquid, semisolid, or contained gaseous material resulting from industrial, commercial, mining, or agricultural operations or from community activities. See IC 13-11-2-205 for a more detailed definition. The term 'solid waste' is commonly used to refer to solid waste that is not hazardous. According to the definition above, hazardous waste is solid waste. However, hazardous waste is excluded from the solid waste rules at 329 IAC 10, 11 and 12."
