Hazardous waste that is destined for land disposal must meet all applicable treatment standards prior to land disposal. Treatment standards for hazardous wastes are found in the treatment standards table at Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in section A small portion of this table is shown below for purposes of illustration.
