Toxic waste is waste material that can cause death, injury, or birth defects. It contaminates multiple different areas of land, such as land, rivers, lakes, and oceans. Toxic waste is a poisonous by-product of manufacturing, farming, city septic systems, construction, automotive garages, laboratories, hospitals, and other industries. In oder to safely dispose of toxic waste, organizations must comply to rules and regulations. There have been places created for proper disposal designed to permanently contain the waste to prevent harm. But there is still unsafe disposal of toxic waste. It is costly to properly dispose of toxic waste, and therefore some organizations and companies don't use clean production methods and often produce a lot of toxic waste that is not disposed of properly.
