Disinger, John F.
Problems related to the handling of hazardous substances and toxic wastes have escalated making this environmental dilemma a national concern. This digest provides an update of key legislative and management efforts associated with hazardous wastes and reviews current instructional materials in the area. Major topics addressed include: (1) waste disposal laws (summarizing major legislative attempts); (2) superfund (describing its intent and parameters); (3) management options (assessing current procedures and techniques); (4) teaching materials (providing a representative sample of materials available in the ERIC system); and (5) additional sources (identifying programs and resources that could assist in the development of instructional materials).
