A hazardous waste is waste that poses substantial or potential threats to public health or the environment. Hazardous wastes can be liquids, solids, gases, or sludges. They can be discarded commercial products, like cleaning fluids or pesticides, or the by-products of manufacturing processes.
Electronic waste, or e-waste, is generally considered anything that plugs into a wall or accepts batteries. E-waste has surfaced as an important issue, because it can be dangerous if disposed of improperly. Many major retailers have instituted take-back programs and municipalities have created drop-off locations to help quell e-waste issues.
Waste Stream Auditing and Analysis
Conducting a waste stream analysis will provide a good snapshot of waste composition at your facility. The waste stream analysis is also important for designing an integrated waste management plan that promotes reduction, reuse, and recycling.
