    Many of the sampling devices, procedures and protocols used for hazardous waste sampling have been developed and adapted from water or soil sampling procedures. In every case significant modification and flexibility in these procedures are necessary to successfully sample hazardous waste material. A set of sampling protocols have been prepared by our operating sites to utilize our collective experience in sampling and to standardize our sampling protocols across our company. General sampling protocols were needed that address: Sample Training; Safety — Personal Protective Equipment; Chain-of-Custody/Labeling; Sample Management — Container, Preservations, Holding Times, and Sample Facilities and Decontamination.

    These general protocols are the basis for development of specific sampling circumstances that are routinely encountered during the management of hazardous waste. These specific routines are called the Site Specific Protocols and they include: solids in drums; liquids in drums; bulk solids; bulk liquids; stationary tanks; surface impoundments; in-line liquids; waste piles; laboratory subsampling liquids; laboratory subsampling solids.
