What is Hazardous Waste?

EPA regulatory guidelines define hazardous waste as any solid, liquid, or contained gaseous material that is no longer being used and is recycled, stored, or thrown away.

A waste is considered hazardous if it’s either one of 400+ items listed on the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations or if it exhibits one of the following four hazardous waste characteristics defined below:

  • Ignitability: Something that catches on fire easily when exposed to heat (i.e. solvents, paint thinner, and gasoline)

  • Corrosivity: Substances that “Eat” other matter (i.e. battery acid, caustic paint strippers, and some floor cleaners)

  • Reactivity: Certain cyanides, sulfide-bearing, or any other items that are unstable, explosive, or toxic under pressure, when mixed with water or another substance, or exposed to heat

  • Toxicity: Anything that is harmful or fatal when ingested or absorbed
