Such wastes can be toxic chemicals and flammable or radioactive substances, including industrial waste from chemical plants or nuclear reactors, agricultural waste, pesticides, fertilizers, medical waste or hazardous household waste such as toxic dyes or solvents. CBRN waste should be safely recycled without harm to the environment. Toxic chemicals, radioactive substances or biological materials should be concentrated for final disposal.
