What constitutes hazardous waste?
From the EPA website # The F-list (non-specific source wastes). This list identifies wastes from common manufacturing and industrial processes, such as solvents that have been used in cleaning or degreasing operations. Because the processes producing these wastes can occur in different sectors of industry, the F-listed wastes are known as wastes from non-specific sources. # The K-list (source-specific wastes). This list includes certain wastes from specific industries, such as petroleum refining or pesticide manufacturing. Certain sludges and wastewaters from treatment and production processes in these industries are examples of source-specific wastes. # The P-list and the U-list (discarded commercial chemical products). These lists include specific commercial chemical products in an unused form. Some pesticides and some pharmaceutical products become hazardous waste when discarded.
What are the differences between hazardous and non hazardous waste and the relationship of this to potential contamination?
Hazardous wastes are materials that are to be discarded (i.e. are wastes) but can be a danger to people or to the environment and meet the definition based on the identity of the material or on test results. If hazardous wastes are mixed with the nonhazardous wastes, the result is a hazardous waste. A non-hazardous waste is something that is to be discarded (i.e is a waste) but does not meet the definition of a hazardous waste.

What list from the environmental protection agency identifies source specific wastes?
The K-list identifies source specific wastes from specific sectors of industry and manufacturing. A waste must be in one of the following 13 categories to qualify as a K-listed hazardous waste. Wood preservation, Organic chemicals manufacturing, Pesticides manufacturing, Petroleum refining, Veterinary pharmaceuticals manufacturing, Inorganic pigment manufacturing, Inorganic chemicals manufacturing, Explosives manufacturing, Iron and steel production, Primary aluminum production, Secondary lead processing, Ink formulation, and Coking (processing of coal to produce coke). To find out more information about the K-list wastes, and about F, P and U-list wastes as well, check the Environmental Protection Agency's list on hazardous wastes.
Are hazardous materials hazardous substances and hazardous wastes all the same thing?
No. All hazardous wastes and hazardous substances are hazardous materials, but not all hazardous materials are hazardous wastes or hazardous substances. In the US regulations of the Department of Transportation, a Hazardous Substance is a material specifically listed by name in a particular part of the regulations. A Hazardous Waste is something meeting the EPA definition of that term. A hazardous material is one that has been determined by the Secretary of Transportation to present a potential risk to life or property in the course of transportation.
