Title:RESULTS OF THE HAZARDOUS WASTE CHARACTERISTICS SCOPING STUDY
RCRA Online Number:14665
Date:04/18/2003
To:Thompson
From:Springer
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The Hazardous Waste Characteristics Scoping Study reviewed RCRA hazardous waste characteristics. The Scoping Study examined whether RCRA regulations were effective in identifying hazardous waste, whether other waste properties should be used to classify hazardous waste, and whether hazardous waste characteristics should be expanded. The study found that most nonhazardous wastes are managed appropriately when disposed. The study identified the need for investigations on the risk of waste releases to the air, on the potential for hazardous constituents to leach from wastes, and on the measurement of the ignitability, corrosivity, and reactivity characteristics. Air studies found no need for additional regulation. Other investigations are currently underway.
