Hazardous Characteristics are the parameters identified by the USEPA that define a hazardous waste. They are Toxicity, Ignitability and Corrosivity. A fourth characteristic, reactivity, was withdrawn by the USEPA. However, several regulatory agencies continue to request the parameter. A positive test for any one characteristic defines the waste as hazardous.
