This report is intended to provide an information base for personnel accepting hazardous waste at existing disposal sites, or performing remedial action at uncontrolled waste sites, to make the appropriate decisions regarding the disposition of reactive wastes. It emphasizes simple treatment and disposal schemes which are likely to be the most cost effective. It provides information on the hazards to be anticipated and the appropriate safety precautions necessary to protect personnel and property and to prevent any further environmental damage. The data in this report was obtained by reviewing the extensive in-house background information on the characteristics of reactive hazardous wastes; by reviewing the recent literature, particularly information pertaining to the handling and treatment of hazardous chemicals and finally by seeking information and comment from operators of hazardous waste disposal sites, including those specializing in the handling of reactive wastes. The report is divided into three major sections: (1) Identification of Problem Wastes; (2) Identification of Treatment Alternatives; and (3) Identification of Data Gaps. Additional information on classes of chemical reactive wastes and treatment and disposal method identified from the literature, which were used to develop the more generalized schemes, is provided in Appendices A and B, respectively. Conclusions and Recommendations are summarized separately.
