Hazardous Waste Management

The biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of hazardous wastes are used to classify them. Toxic, reactive, ignitable, corrosive, infectious, or radioactive compounds are created as a result of these qualities. Even in trace concentrations, toxic wastes are poisonous. They may have immediate consequences, such as death or severe illness, or they may have long-term consequences, such as irreversible injury. Some are carcinogenic, meaning they can cause cancer after years of exposure. Others are mutagenic, causing significant biological alterations in the progeny of humans and wildlife exposed to them.
