Disposed hazardous waste often includes two or more different wastes. Segregating materials and wastes can decrease the amount of waste to be disposed. Recyclers and waste exchangers are more receptive to wastes not contaminated by other substances. The following are good operating practices for waste segregation:
• Prevent hazardous wastes from mixing with non-hazardous wastes
• Isolate hazardous wastes by contaminant
• Isolate liquid wastes from solid wastes
