EPA closed container regulations [40 CFR 262.16(b)(2)(ii) and 40 CFR 262.17(a)(1)(iv)] require your hazardous waste containers to be "kept closed, except when necessary to add or remove hazardous wastes."
EPA's Guidance Document for Closed Containers defines "closed" and outlines liquid and solid hazardous waste storage in two major accumulation areas: central (CAAs) and satellite (SAAs) accumulation areas.
