The Federal Toxics Program Commentary is a quick-reference that provides an overview of hazardous waste regulations and discusses how the various laws interact. It offers easy access to hazardous waste and toxics legislation on a national level, as well as indicating which states have their own programs and provides supplements that assist users in finding relevant state agencies if further information is required.

This guide informs and directs users on proper environmental waste management, including acceptable hazardous waste disposal practices.

A Matrix Wall Chart provides a hazardous materials table with easy access for all employees, categorizes the laws down the left and details their application across the top.
