ABSTRACT

Hazardous Materials: Inadequate Safeguards Over Sales Pose Health and Environmental Dangers, Report to Congressional Requesters   [open pdf - 2MB]

"The Department of Defense (DoD) and the General Services Administration (GSA) have sold hazardous materials to buyers who have improperly stored and/or used them, creating potential dangers to humans and the environment. As a result of the recent discoveries of improperly stored hazardous materials in California, the Chairman, Subcommittee on Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources, House Committee on Government Operations, and the Chairman, Subcommittee on Legislative, House Committee on Appropriations, requested that GAO determine whether DoD and GSA were ensuring that hazardous materials were sold only to buyers that could properly transport, handle, use, store, and, if necessary, dispose of the materials as hazardous waste."
