EPA Characteristic Wastes (D-List)
Characteristic wastes exhibit the characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity.
Ignitability- having a flash point less than 140° F
Corrosivity- pH less than 2 or greater than 12.5
Reactivity- unstable, water or air reactive, generates toxic gases with mixed with water, cyanide or sulfide that generates toxic gases on contact with corrosive liquids, or explosive
Toxicity- wastes likely to leach concentrations of contaminants that may be harmful to human health or the environment. These are listed specifically by EPA.
