Title:FOLLOW-UP ACTIVITIES TO THE HAZARDOUS WASTE CHARACTERISTICS SCOPING STUDY
RCRA Online Number:14629
Date:10/07/2002
To:Enns
From:Springer
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The Hazardous Waste Characteristics Scoping Study reviewed the effectiveness of current hazardous waste characteristics in identifying regulated hazardous wastes. The study examined whether other properties should be used to classify a waste as hazardous or if current characteristics should be expanded. The Scoping Study found most nonhazardous waste is managed appropriately when disposed. More investigations are needed on the risk of waste releases to air, on the potential for hazardous constituents to leach from waste, and on the measurement of the ignitability, corrosivity, and reactivity characteristics. Air studies found no need for additional regulation. Other investigations are currently underway.
