The term is often used interchangeably with "hazardous waste", or discarded material that can pose a long-term risk to health or environment. As with most pollution problems, toxic waste began to be a significant issue during the industrial revolution. It usually is the product of industry or commerce, but comes also from residential use (e.g. cleaning products, cosmetics, lawn care products), agriculture (e.g. chemical fertilizers, pesticides), the military (nuclear weapons testing, chemical warfare, medical facilities (e.g. pharmaceuticals), radioactive sources, and light industry, such as dry cleaning establishments.
