This study documents the average concentration, estimated daily deposition, and partitioning of 17 metal species in hazardous wastes discharged to five Class I landfill sites in the greater Los Angeles area. These sites receive a combined estimated daily volume of 2.3 x 10 to the 6th l/day of hazardous wastes. A total of 320 samples were collected and consolidated into 99 samples representative of 17 industry types. The data was summarized for six general industry groups: petroleum, chemical, metal, foods, industrial cleaning, and miscellaneous/unknown.
