Those facilities that treat hazardous waste on-site are required to have a Tiered Permit.  Treatment is any method, technique, or process which changes or is designed to change the physical, chemical, or biological character or composition of any hazardous waste or any constituent contained within the hazardous waste, or removes or reduces its harmful properties or characteristics for any purpose including, but not limited to, pH adjustment, removal or reduction of metals, oil/water separation, precipitation, evaporation, or reduction in volume.  The governing laws are the Health and Safety Code (HSC) and 22 CCR.
