Sections 2 and 3 of this volume discuss results of field investigations at ten land cultivation sites. These ten sites represent a variety of waste and site characteristics, climate, and waste application techniques. Four sites are presented in Section 2, each cultivating an industrial waste. Both soil and vegetative samples were collected and analyzed at these sites. Analytical results are presented along with brief narrative site descriptions. Detailed reports on six case study sites are found in Section 3. Soil and vegetation samples were collected at three of these sites, with only interviews and observations performed at the other three. The report on the Michigan site is less detailed than that on the other five sites. Operating cost information was also collected from each site. Other nonstandard disposal or waste utilization techniques for hazardous wastes are discussed in Section 4. This section reviews waste types utilized or considered for nonstandard disposal, as well as the disposal techniques being employed. The location of most of the case study sites is given in only general terms, such as Rhode Island. Further, the companies involved as waste generators or disposers are not identified. Such anonymity protects proprietary information about processes and operations.
