Title:RESULTS OF HAZARDOUS WASTE CHARACTERISTICS SCOPING STUDY
RCRA Online Number:14622
Date:09/10/2002
To:Brehm
From:Hale
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The Hazardous Waste Characteristics Scoping Study reviewed RCRA hazardous waste (HW) characteristics. The Scoping Study examined whether the regulations were effective in identifying HW, whether other waste properties should be used to classify HW, and whether HW characteristics should be expanded. More studies are needed on the risks of waste releases to air, the potential for hazardous constituents to leach, and measurements of the ignitability, corrosivity, and reactivity characteristics. Air studies found no need for additional regulation. The Scoping Study found that most nonhazardous waste is managed appropriately when disposed.
