Hazardous Waste Characterizations

The EPA defines solid waste as any material that is discarded or abandoned, including liquids and gases. In many instances the origin of a waste is uncertain. In others, the level of hazardous constituents may vary over time. Without detailed knowledge of wastes it is impossible to properly dispose of potentially hazardous materials.

Complete waste profiles with confidence… ahead of schedule.

Paradigm uses test procedures established by the EPA to assess wastes for ignitability, reactivity, corrosives, and release of toxic constituents through the Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP). TCLP is a bench scale extraction designed to predict the release of toxins under sanitary landfill conditions. At Paradigm we assess wastes quickly and accurately; allowing you to complete waste profiles with confidence, and arrange for proper disposal well ahead of regulatory deadlines.
