Toxic Waste Pollution Violations Are Dangerous and Against the Law

environmental violations - toxic waste pollutionToxic waste pollution and illegal waste dumping cases involve complex issues and require an experienced environmental law attorney who knows how local, regional and federal environmental regulations apply.

Environmental rights are an extension of the basic human rights that mankind requires and deserves. California’s environmental laws are enforced by both state and local agencies, each charged with enforcing the laws governing specific types of environmental pollution.

A hazardous waste is a waste with properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment. Hazardous waste is generated from many sources, ranging from industrial manufacturing process wastes to batteries and may come in many forms, including liquids, solids, gases, and sludges. Toxic waste products are divided into three general categories: chemical wastes, radioactive wastes, and medical wastes.

In general terms, toxic waste refers to:

  • Pesticides (eg, POPs, PCBs, DDT, chlordane, toxaphene, etc.)
  • Chemical Waste (eg, lead, mercury, etc.)
  • Radioactive Waste (eg, nuclear reactor materials or parts)
  • Medical Waste (eg, organic tissues & fluids, medical containers, etc.)
  • Carcinogenic Waste
  • Batteries & Fluorescent Bulbs
  • Electronic Devices (eg, cell phones, microwaves, televisions, monitors, etc.)

The mismanagement of toxic hazardous waste could lead to conditions that may cause harm to humans or to the environment. Since hazardous materials can cause serious or fatal injuries, penalties have been established for willful or negligent violation of the toxic waste laws. Violations may result in monetary penalties for every day of violation or time in prison.

If you work at or live near a landfill, incinerator, composting center, recycling center, waste management center, town dump, or any other type of toxic waste facility, your health may be at risk. If you have had your health harmed or well-being damaged by toxic waste dumping or contamination, or have witnessed illegal toxic waste pollution or disposal, you may have a legal claim.
