There are economic and regulatory incentives for considering alternatives to the direct land disposal of solvent-bearing hazardous waste streams (EPA Hazardous Waste Codes: F001, F002, F003, F004, and F005). These alternatives include recycle/reuse (including use as a fuel substitute), destruction of a stream's solvent component, and treatment prior to land disposal. The paper reviews these three waste management alternatives and discusses their applicability to solvent waste streams having various physical characteristics.
