Dealing with Hazardous Waste

One of the biggest problems with modern trash is that it includes not only organic biodegradable trash and nonbiodegradable materials such as plastics, but also truly hazardous substances. Hazardous waste encompasses poisonous household items and toxic industrial chemicals, as well as special types of particularly hazardous substances such as nuclear wastes and e-waste—products such as old computers, cell phones, and other electronics. U.S. laws impose special requirements for the proper disposal and cleanup of much of this hazardous waste, but certain types of hazardous substances still escape the reach of federal and state regulations.
