Hazardous waste is a material with harmful properties or capable of negatively affecting the environment or human health. It's generated from many sources that range from household waste, industrial manufacturing processes to products such as batteries. Hazardous waste comes in many forms such as liquids, sludge, and solids gases. Many industrial and consumer products, including

Hazardous waste management revolves around reducing the number or volume of hazardous materials produced and treating them to reduce their levels of toxicity. Then, sound engineering controls are applied in their reuse through the elimination of hazardous exposure. Electronics also contain hazardous materials, some of which can be reused. Recycling electronics (eCycling) helps keep valuable materials
