What classes as hazardous waste?
« on: August 24, 2016, 02:49:07 PM »
Are classifications such as clinical and chemical waste also hazardous waste, or is hazardous waste a separate category of its own for something else?

Wastes that poses substantial threat to public health and environment are termed as hazardous wastes. These may include your hairspary cans, household cleaners, household chemicals etc. Among the wastes which exhibit one of the four characteristics defined in 40 CFR Part 261 Subpart C - ignitability (D001), corrosivity (D002), reactivity (D003), and toxicity (D004 - D043). are termed hazardous. The E-waste disposed is a great threat to the environment due to the poisonous contents in its electrical parts. Getting rid off these eWaste is quite challenging. Best option I found in an article is to donate them so that they will be recycled thereby reducing the refuse accumulation. Check this article on how to dispose of E-Waste in an enviroment friendly way http://www.redbins.ca/5-tips-disposing-e-waste/. Else sell it thus making profit from your junk. Stick to buying only the electronic items which are needed thus avoiding unknowingly buying things you already have.
