Why must we dispose of absorbents as hazardous materials?

If an absorbent material has never been used, it can be thrown in a solid waste landfill. However, if you have already used it to clean up the water or other hazardous liquids, it is best to dispose of them in accordance with the US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. Use only authorized hazardous waste transporters to dispose of your used industrial absorbents.
