A waste is hazardous if it exhibits any of these four characteristics:

1. Flammability or Ignitability:

Ignitable waste can create fires under certain conditions. Examples include liquids, such as solvents that readily catch fire, and friction-sensitive substances.

Examples:
 

  • lighter fluids
  • propane cylinders
  • paint thinner
  • used motor oil
  • turpentine
  • polish
  • adhesives
  • oil-based paints
  • certain degreasers

2. Corrosivity:

Waste is considered corrosive if it is capable of corroding metals or has a very high or low pH.

Examples:
 

  • acids and caustics
  • pool chemicals
  • strong chemicals
  • battery acid
  • bleach
  • rust removers

3. Reactivity:

Waste is considered reactive if 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 or sulfide-bearing wastes.

Examples:
 

  • cyanides
  • pool chlorine
  • strong fertilizers

4. Toxicity:

Waste is considered toxic if 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:
 

  • rat poison
  • weed killers
  • antifreeze
