Federal regulations mandate that solid waste generators determine if their waste streams should be classified as “hazardous wastes.” Wastes deemed hazardous must be properly stored, treated and disposed in accordance with the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). One of the characteristics that define a hazardous waste is the amount of certain toxic components (e.g. metals like lead) that can leach from the waste. The RCRA defines the analytical method to be used to evaluate the waste and also stipulates the allowable limits for a component (e.g., lead) to leach.
