Comparison of Risks and Cost of Hazardous Waste Alternatives: Methods Development and Pilot Studies

This study was designed not only to test the viability of comparative risk assessment for hazardous waste management alternatives, but also to serve as a basis for making land disposal prohibition decisions for hazardous waste streams. Therefore, these comparative risk assessments were intended to be illustrative and representative by using well known wastes, realistic waste generation and disposal scenarios, and by stating the needed assumptions explicitly.
