Frequent Questions

What is the land disposal restrictions (LDR) program?

The LDR program ensures that hazardous wastes disposed on the land do not pose a threat to human health and the environment. EPA accomplishes this by setting treatment standards for all hazardous waste bound for land disposal. These treatment standards ensure hazardous waste is properly treated to destroy or immobilize hazardous chemical components before it is land disposed.
