Those who remember with outrage the toxic waste nightmares at Love Canal and Times Beach might think nothing of taking their shirts to the neighborhood dry cleaners. But laundries, car maintenance shops, printing and ceramics studios, and other small businesses create by-products as deadly to human health and the environment as those that grabbed national headlines in the 1970s and 1980s. Aided by a regulatory system that winks at small polluters, many of these firms simply toss toxins down the drain.Hazardous Waste From Small Quantity Generators goes straight to the industry and government experts to assess the damage and prescribe solutions.
