Containers previously
containing toxic chemical
substances
Waste containers that used to hold the toxic chemical substances listed in Classes A, D, E, and L, subcategories
M504 and M505, and the chemicals listed in the Priority Chemical List.

J201
K: Immobilized Wastes  
Solidified wastes and
polymerized wastes
Wastes whose hazardous substances are physically immobilized by consolidation to reduce the surface area of the wastes in order to meet the waste acceptance
criteria
K301
Chemically fixed wastes Wastes whose hazardous substances are chemically immobilized through chemical bonds to an immobile matrix or chemical conversion to meet the waste acceptance criteria
K302
Encapsulated wastes Wastes whose hazardous substances are physically immobilized by enveloping the waste in a non-porous, impermeable material in order to store hazardous wastes until such time that a proper disposal facility is available.
