How is toxic and hazardous waste disposed?

Toxic waste is any unwanted material in all forms that can cause harm (e.g. by being inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin). Many of today's household products such as televisions, computers and phones contain toxic chemicals that can pollute the air and contaminate soil and water. Disposing of such waste is a major public health issue.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has identified 11 key substances that pose a risk to human health:
  • Arsenic: used in making electrical circuits, as an ingredient in pesticides, and as a wood preservative. It is classified as a carcinogen.
  • Asbestos: is a material that was once used for the insulation of buildings, and some businesses are still using this material to manufacture roofing materials and brakes. Inhalation of asbestos fibers can lead to lung cancer and asbestosis.
  • Cadmium: is found in batteries and plastics. It can be inhaled through cigarette smoke, or digested when included as a pigment in food. Exposure leads to lung damage, irritation of the digestive tract, and kidney disease.
  • Chromium: is used as brick lining for high-temperature industrial furnaces, as a solid metal used for making steel, and in chrome plating, manufacturing dyes and pigments, wood preserving, and leather tanning. It is known to cause cancer, and prolonged exposure can cause chronic bronchitis and damage lung tissue.
  • Clinical wastes: such as syringes and medication bottles can spread pathogens and harmful microorganisms, leading to a variety of illnesses.
  • Cyanide: a poison found in some pesticides and rodenticides. In large doses it can lead to paralysisconvulsions, and respiratory distress.
  • Lead: is found in batteries, paints, and ammunition. When ingested or inhaled can cause harm to the nervous and reproductive systems, and kidneys.
  • Mercury: used for dental fillings and batteries. It is also used in the production of chlorine gas. Exposure can lead to birth defects and kidney and brain damage
  • PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, are used in many manufacturing processes, by the utility industry, and in paints and sealants. Damage can occur through exposure, affecting the nervous, reproductive, and immune systems, as well as the liver.
  • POPspersistent organic pollutants. They are found in chemicals and pesticides, and may lead to nervous and reproductive system defects. They can bio-accumulatein the food chain or persist in the environment and be moved great distances through the atmosphere.
  • Strong acids and alkalis used in manufacturing and industrial production. They can destroy tissue and cause internal damage to the body.

Organic wastes can be destroyed by incineration at high temperatures.[11] However, if the waste contains heavy metals or radioactive isotopes, these must be separated and stored, as they cannot be destroyed.[12] The method of storage will seek to immobilize the toxic components of the waste, possibly through storage in sealed containers, inclusion in a stable medium such as glass or a cement mixture, or burial under an impermeable clay cap. Waste transporters and waste facilities may charge fees; consequently, improper methods of disposal may be used to avoid paying these fees. Where the handling of toxic waste is regulated, the improper disposal of toxic waste may be punishable by fines[6] or prison terms. Burial sites for toxic waste and other contaminated brownfield land may eventually be used as greenspace or redeveloped for commercial or industrial use.

Disposal facilities are usually designed to permanently contain the waste and prevent the release of harmful pollutants to the environment. The most common hazardous waste disposal practice is placement in a land disposal unit such as a landfill, surface impoundment, waste pile, land treatment unit, or injection well.

Asbestos Disposal near me , by State

Every state is home to numerous job sites where asbestos was prevalent because the toxic mineral was widely used in industrial, commercial and domestic settings.
Mesothelioma incidence rates are higher in states in the northeast and northwest United States, where asbestos mining and processing was common throughout much of the 20th century. Mining towns such as Libby, Montana, and Ambler, Pennsylvania, continue to deal with the deadly legacy of the asbestos industry.
States in the West are also a hotbed for environmental asbestos exposure, with naturally occurring deposits of asbestos in many of the mountainous regions of Montana, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and California.
Other states synonymous with manufacturing and trade have high incidence rates of asbestos-related diseases, including New Jersey, Michigan and Texas. States with some of America’s largest shipyards saw high rates of asbestos exposure, including California, New York and Louisiana.
eWaste Disposal, Inc can help with the profiling, transportation and disposal of asbestos . This includes testing.
