Abstract
A test protocol to determine the gross chemical composition of waste materials has been developed for use at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Included is a field test kit, flow diagrams, a descriptive manual and a mixing device to observe the effects of mixing two hazardous wastes. Prior knowledge of the chemical composition of the waste materials is not required for this protocol. Unidentified wastes were classified by reactivity groups using this test scheme in the laboratory and in the field. Small amounts of wastes that indicated compatibility were placed in the mixing device to verify that mixing would not generate immediate catastrophic results.
