Abstract
The United States has numerous hazardous waste sources scattered throughout the Nation, producing 56 million tons annually. These include industrial wastes, agricultural chemical residues, and chemical or pathological wastes from hospitals and laboratories. They occur as solids, liquids, powders, and sludges, and represent a prodigious disposal problem. GAO reviewed the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) hazardous waste management plans and programs and the necessary resources to support them. GAO also visited 10 state environmental protection organizations and met with representatives of industrial associations, trucking companies, and waste management firms.
