Solvent Containment

Hazardous waste comes in many forms, and generally is either listed specifically as hazardous by the federal government, or it is considered hazardous by the characteristics it demonstrates. A waste is considered hazardous if it is:

  • Ignitable -- It catches fire under certain conditions. Examples are certain paints and degreasers and solvents.
  • Corrosive -- It corrodes metals or has a very high or very low pH. Examples are rust removers, acid or alkaline cleaning fluids, and battery acid.
  • Reactive or Unstable -- It is unstable and explodes or produces toxic fumes, gases, and vapors when mixed with water or under other conditions, such as heat or pressure. Examples are certain cyanides and sulfide-bearing wastes.
  • Toxic -- It is harmful or fatal when ingested or absorbed, or it leaches toxic chemicals into the soil or ground water when disposed of on land. Examples are wastes that contain high concentrations of heavy metals, such as cadmium, lead, or mercury.
