Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) for RCRA 8 metals.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) monitors 8 heavy metals commonly referred to as “RCRA 8’s”.

The RCRA 8 heavy metals include Arsenic (As), Barium (Ba), Cadmium (Cd), Chromium (Cr), Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Selenium (Se), and Silver (Ag).

Specialty Analytical can provide TCLP and total metal content in a representative sample to fulfill this requirement.



Asbestos is a major concern in which landfills require burned debris to be accompanied by an appropriate asbestos survey that certifies it does not contain asbestos.

Specialty Analytical can provide asbestos testing through local accredited laboratories for your convenience.



Sulfur content in burned material often requires testing, which may be required for the fire debris before disposal.

Specialty Analytical can test sulfur content in a representative sample to fulfill this requirement.
