If the hazardous substances at industrial, commercial, and agricultural sites can be properly

handled, stored, transported, and/or disposed of, there will be no environmental pollution, and no need to embark on any site remediation. With this concept in mind, the goal of in-plant

hazardous waste management is to achieve pollution prevention and human-health protection at

the sources where there are hazardous substances. This chapter begins with hazardous waste

terminologies and characteristics. Special emphasis is placed on the manifest system, hazardous

substances storage requirements, underground storage tanks, above-ground storage tanks,

hazardous substances transportation, hazardous waste handling, and disposal.
