What is Hazardous Waste?

The EPA defines hazardous waste as any waste containing properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment.

Hazardous waste can come from several different sources (everything from industrial manufacturing processes to batteries) and comes in various physical forms such as liquid, solids, gas, and sludge.

Ignitability

Waste that is considered flammable. This includes solids capable of spontaneously combusting, liquids with a flash point of 60 degrees Celsius or 140 degrees Fahrenheit (such as alcohol, gasoline, and acetone), and compressed gasses.

Corrosivity

Hazardous materials capable of rusting or decomposing. Corrosives are defined as any liquid with a pH of less than or equal to 2, or greater than or equal to 12.5, or possesses the ability to corrode steel. Examples of these materials include hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, and sulfuric acid, most can typically be found in everyday items such as rust removers and battery acid.

Reactivity

Any waste that is at risk of exploding or having a violent reaction. The EPA defines reactive waste as being:

● Unstable and routinely experiences violent change without detonating

● Potentially explosive when mixed or combined with water

● Release toxic gasses when mixed with water

Toxicity

Materials that are poisonous due to toxic characteristics. This waste is harmful when ingested or absorbed and may potentially pose a pollution threat to groundwater
