Hazardous Waste Generators (LQGs) can be placed in almost any location, creating serious repercussions for residents around them. Hazardous waste carries severe health risks to humans, such as cancers, respiratory conditions, heart disease, neurobehavioral issues, liver and kidney damage, and many other health implications (CDC). This poster examines whether there is a correlation between locations of LQGs and race/ethnicity, income, and/or children in King County.
