Hazardous Waste Test Methods / SW-846

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) governs waste management and materials recovery and reuse, including the disposal of both hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste. In support of RCRA, EPA developed test methods for the analysis of various environmental media. These test methods can be found in the EPA publication, Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste: Physical/Chemical Methods, also known as SW-846.
