Hazardous waste is one of the most heavily regulated business processes. The Environmental Protection Agency requires companies that handle hazardous waste to follow a number of procedures and undergo a series of regular inspections.
Hazardous waste is so regulated because leaks or other exposure could lead to dangerous explosions or negatively impact the health of employees. To protect against such accidents, companies store or dispose of hazardous waste in a number of ways. These methods include using sealed containers, containment buildings, surface impoundment, tanks, and waste piles.
