Not later than eighteen months after the effective date of this title,

2. Transportation and storage of such waste only if properly labeled;

3. Compliance with the manifest system established under section

4. Transportation of all such hazardous waste only to the hazardous
waste treatment, storage, or disposal facility or facilities which are
designated on the manifest form, a copy of which shall be presented to
the generator prior to transportation, and which either hold operation
permits issued under this article, are a permittee under the Federal
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of nineteen hundred seventy-six
or any amendments thereof, or are otherwise duly authorized to accept
hazardous waste; and

5. Requirement of a bond to meet all responsibilities in case of
release of hazardous wastes causing damage as a condition to the
issuance of a permit to a transporter required by this title.

regulations establishing such minimum standards and procedures necessary
to insure proper cleaning and removal of hazardous waste and its residue
from such equipment.
