The report summarizes the results of a study that addressed: the definition of household hazardous wastes (HHW); the quantities of HHW in the municipal waste stream; the impacts of HHW on homeowners, solid waste collection and disposal personnel, and the environment; and HHW collection programs conducted at State and local levels. A standard definition of HHW was developed and lists of household products that may be considered HHW, when discarded, are given. Several instances of injuries to sanitation workers resulting from handling HHW are documented. Information on State and local HHW collection programs is given, including the benefits and problems associated with these programs.
