Many businesses generate wastes that are considered hazardous and cannot be discarded with other refuse. Waste is considered hazardous if it has one or more of the following characteristics:
- Ignitability — Items with low flashpoints such as used solvents.
- Corrosivity — Includes items that are acids or bases that can corrode metal containers.
- Reactivity — Reactive wastes are unstable under “normal” conditions. They can cause explosions, toxic fumes, gases, etc. when heated, compressed or mixed with water.
- Toxicity — Toxic wastes are harmful or fatal when ingested or absorbed and includes pesticides, herbicides, etc.
