What exactly are listed wastes?
Identify hazardous wastes by understanding listed wastes and their classifications with US Chemical Storage.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified specific hazardous wastes because of their potential dangers to human health or the environment. These wastes are given the term “listed wastes” and are organized into four classes found below.
According to the EPA, wastes are considered listed wastes if they display particular hazards including “corrosivity, ignitability, reactivity or toxicity (§261.11(a)(1)); can be fatal to humans or animals at minimal measures (§261.11(a)(2)); the material contains any of the toxic constituents listed in 40 CFR part 261, Appendix VIII. If the material poses a substantial present or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, or disposed of, or otherwise managed (§261.11(a)(3)). ”
Listed Waste Categories
F-list wastes: The F-list includes specific solid wastes from particular industrial or manufacturing processes. F-listed wastes are generated from different sectors in the industry, therefore these wastes are commonly known as non-specific source wastes. Wastes included in this listing involves solvents or similar substances that were used in cleaning or degreasing operations. F-list wastes can be found under 40 CFR (§261.31) regulations.
K-list wastes: The K-list allocates specific solid wastes from certain industries as hazardous. Industries regarding K-listed wastes include petroleum refining, pesticide manufacturing, water treatment processes and other similar operations. K-list wastes can be found under 40 CFR (§261.32)
P-list & U-list wastes: These wastes are considered unused commercial chemical products that have been discarded. P-list and U-list categories include a wide variety of chemicals including pharmaceutical products and pesticides. Chemical wastes included on the P- and U-lists are found under 40 CFR (§261.33).
