Chemical Hazards And Materials (for Schools)
Over the years, we've learned that the nation's hazardous waste problems cannot be cured by simply burying waste in the land. Treating chemicals prior to land disposal will not necessarily remedy our hazardous waste problems. It's essential that we first minimize the generation and subsequent need for treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste. This concept, called Waste Minimization, is essential for ensuring a healthful environment for us all.
