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.
