HAZARDOUS WASTE
Hazardous waste can be defined as:
The waste or combination of waste that pose (cause) a substantial (large) hazard tohuman health or living organism because such waste
 
is not degradable (decomposed) or persistence (natural) in nature
 
can be biological magnified (enlarged)
 
can be lethal (dangerous)
 
may cause or tend to cause detrimental (harmful) cumulative (increasing)effects.
Identification of hazardous waste
 
Identification of hazardous waste is the process of determining whether a waste ishazardous or not?
 
Is the waste specifically excluded from the EPA regulations?
 
Preliminary decision model for screening and selecting hazardous compound arepresent in the standards of EPA.
 
Hazardous waste criteria used in the screening model related to only the intrinsic(natural) hazardous of waste on uncontrolled release.
 
The final steps in the hazardous waste identification process determine whether awaste actually poses a sufficient chemical or physical hazard.
CLASSIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE
There are many compounds and product combination that fit within the board definition of hazardous waste. The group of waste is considered in five general categories;1.
 
Radioactive substance2.
 
Chemical3.
 
Biological waste4.
 
Flammable waste5.
 
Explosives

RADIOACTIVE SUBSTANCE
Substances that emit ionization radiation are defined as being radioactive. Such substancesare hazardous because prolonged (extended) exposure to radiation often results in damageto living organisms. Radioactive substances are of special concern because they persist overlong period of time.
