dc.description New York law requires the Division of Criminal Justice Services to report on the number of persons charged with offenses violating Articles 27, 37 and 40, and Titles 27 and 37 of Article 71 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) regarding hazardous waste and waste disposal. These laws concern the collection, treatment, disposal of refuse or other solid waste, and the regulation of substances characterized as hazardous or acutely hazardous to the public health, safety, or to the environment. This annual report provides information about the numbers of persons arrested for ECL offenses from 2012 to 2016. The arrests counts are derived from information about fingerprintable adult arrests transmitted by law enforcement agencies to the DCJS Computerized Criminal History (CCH) system and are based on the most serious charge in the arrest event. Because CCH is a fingerprint-based database, prosecutions of corporations or other entities are not identified.
