Instructions In this unit, you became familiar with categorizing hazardous waste; hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities; and remediation of old hazardous waste sites. For this assignment, you will write an essay that discusses the following components: ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ the four characteristics of a hazardous waste, of which ignitability is one; the four lists of hazardous waste, of which one is the P list; the manifest system of tracking hazardous waste; treatment, storage, and disposal facilities in your area; two features of a hazardous waste landfill that are not in a municipal solid waste landfill; and progress made by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA)—otherwise known as the Superfund. Your paper should flow smoothly from topic to topic with thoughtful transitions. Your essay should be at least three pages in length, not counting the references page. Support your essay with at least two peer-reviewed articles from the CSU Online Library. The articles should be no more than 20 years old.

Introduction
With regards to perilous/hazardous waste disposal as well as managing it, it is crucial to
understand the waste any organization generates. Dangerous waste is intensely directed, and in
this way can't simply be hurled out with any regular refuse. To know whether the organization is
taking care of risky/hazardous waste, the initial step is to assess and survey the wastes’
characteristics (Waste, 2018). Categorizing hazardous waste can be done by breaking it into four
characteristics. These are; ignitability, reactivity, corrosivity and toxicity.
Ignitability
Hazardous waste that are characterized by ignitability include:


Solids that spontaneously combust (these are none-liquids given certain conditions can
cause fire).



Liquids with characteristics flash points just lower 60o c.



Oxidizers and ignitable compresses gases.

Corrosivity
Hazardous waste due to corrosive characteristics is mostly aqueous. This waste tends to
have very low or very high ph, this is pH of equal to...
