Abstract : The Federal Government and most States impose less stringent requirements on firms that generate small amounts of hazardous wastes than on those that generate large amounts. This report provides information on Federal and State efforts to control disposal practices of these small quantity generators and provides data on the actual disposal methods used by 48 small quantity generators in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Texas, and Louisiana. It also discusses the extent to which occupational safety and health and ground water contamination problems are caused by the disposal of hazardous waste by small quantity generators.
