Most individuals or businesses that are facing an environmental disaster often don't know if what they are dealing with is hazardous waste. This can cause bigger issues if the call doesn't come over immediately and lead to additional contamination into the environment as well. There are some very basic questions and guidelines that you can ask yourself that will better assist you in determining if you will need professional hazardous waste abatement. These guidelines are all determined by our governmental agency, the EPA division (Environmental Protection Agency). The questions are pretty straightforward and you should be able to make your decision.
- Is the liquid or waste something that can be combustion reactive or explode?
- Is the waste or liquid flammable and can it ignite?
- Is the waste an invisible gas that can release toxic odors into the air?
- Is the waste a liquid or gas that can cause corrosion, rust or decompose other items?
It's pretty cut and dry from here that if your answer to any of these questions is yes, you definitely have a hazardous waste problem and emergency procedures should immediately go into place.

Most homeowners don't even realize they are contributing to major hazardous waste. We all have cleaning supplies, batteries, solvents, paints, oils, pesticides or bug spray in our properties. If these items are just simply thrown in our general garbage system, they are extremely dangerous to our environment. The disposal of each item should be researched by all individuals so not to create dangerous hazardous waste.
