Hazardous waste refers to any material that poses a substantial threat to human health or the environment when improperly handled or disposed of. It can come from various sources, including industrial processes, medical facilities, laboratories, and households.

Exposure to hazardous waste can lead to a range of health problems, including respiratory issues, skin disorders, neurological disorders, and even cancer. Children, pregnant women, and the elderly are particularly vulnerable.

Hazardous waste minimisation focuses on reducing the generation of waste at its source. This can be achieved through cleaner production processes, resource optimization, recycling, and reuse strategies.

The key principles of hazardous waste management should be placed against the waste hierarchy, meaning it goes through the stages of; waste minimisation, proper storage and handling, transportation and disposal compliance, and appropriate treatment and disposal methods.

Government regulations, such as those established by the EPA, ensure the safe handling and disposal of hazardous waste. Compliance with these regulations is essential for maintaining a sustainable and responsible approach to waste management.
