Why It Is Vital To Understand Why Hazardous Waste Can Be So Dangerous
The EPA uses a classification system which makes it easier for the public among other reasons, to comprehend and remember these dangerous materials. The EPA defines hazardous waste if it meets the following 4 traits. Reactivity, Ignitability, Corrosivity, and Toxicity. They also employ a 4 letter code U, P, F, and K. Below we will discuss this system.
The K list is made up of the following materials:
- Cooking products
- Iron and steel
The F list is grouped as such:
- Wood preserving products
- Metal finishing products
The general public is unlikely to use or come in contact with the P and U lists. However, we will mention them in case you have a precocious middle school chemist that may blow up your basement. The P and U lists are made up of commercial and of pure grades of unused chemicals. Such as Aldrin which is a pesticide used to control pests termites and grasshoppers.
The other traits of hazardous waste include the following:
- Ignitability: Waste that can easily catch fire
- Toxicity: Waste that is harmful if eaten or absorbed into our bodies
- Reactivity: Waste that comes in contact with water and can emit toxic gas
- Corrosivity: Waste that has a pH less than 2 or greater or equal to 12.5 pH. These materials can corrode steel. Pretty powerful.
It is important that everyone is familiar with the basic household hazardous materials. Some of the items on this list may surprise you and it behooves you to know what you are buying, using, and exposing your family too. Here is a small sampling:
- Pool chemicals
- Fluorescent bulbs
- Bug sprays
- Driveway sealer
There are a lot more items we can name here. But because of space, we are limited. So, go do a Google search and find out what is a household hazardous waste. Make sure you read all labels before using bug sprays etc…
When you go grocery shopping you will find alternative Green products on the shelf. They are just as effective and a lot safer for you, your family, and the environment.
