Hazardous wastes in an auto collision repair shop go far beyond waste paints and solvents: Rags used for solvent wiping, sponges and mops used for cleaning and spray booth filters are also part of their overall waste stream. Anything that doesn’t go up the stack or down the drain that exhibits characteristics of flammability, corrosivity, toxicity or reactivity is a hazardous waste.
