Abstract The report, which covers textiles manufacturing operations, is one of a series of several studies which examine land-destined wastes from selected industries. The textiles industry is covered under Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 22. The textiles industry was studied because of the use of heavy metals such as chromium and copper in some of the dyeing and finishing operations. These metals can be toxic in certain concentrations and forms. The various dyes and organic chemicals used were also considered for potential hazard. The potentially hazardous wastes destined for land disposal include dye and chemical containers with residuals and wastewater treatment sludges. The amount of sludges is expected to increase as effluent guidelines limitations are implemented.
