Searching for Solutions. A Citizen's Guide to Hazardous Waste Management in Ohio.
Clapham, Pete, Comp.
This guide was developed to promote responsible hazardous waste management by Ohio citizens, citizens who are interested in upgrading operations of existing waste facilities, oppose the development of any new landfills, and those who promote the establishment of modern, efficient facilities. Information is presented in six chapters. The hazardous waste problem in Ohio is addressed in chapter 1. A framework for hazardous waste management is presented in chapter 2, including a flow chart for issuance of a permit to install and operate a hazardous waste facility. Types of hazardous waste management facilities are considered in chapter 3. These include recycling, chemical treatment, detoxification, solidification, reduction of hazards, and disposal. Citizen involvement in the permitting and siting process, accidents and illegal/abandoned sites, and effective citizen involvement are considered in chapter 4, 5, and 6 respectively. At the conclusion of each chapter, there is a series of key questions reviewing the more important elements of the chapter and a list of suggested readings to enable citizens to find more information on the topics discussed.
