“So, dude, think you're a pro pilot now, do you? Rebuild the DK statue, but beware of entering the toxic waste. The Gyrocopter will explode with the slightest touch of that green filth. Use the buttons on the walls to lower the waste, then nip in and retrieve the statue parts.”
In-game description for Toxic Kongstruction, Donkey Kong Country 2 (Game Boy Advance)

Toxic waste (also called Acid)[1] is an uncommon obstacle functioning similarly to poison.

Toxic waste first appears in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, exclusively in the level Toxic Tower, as well as in Donkey Kong Land 2's equivalent of the same name. Toxic waste functions identically between both appearances. The level involves having to climb a tower as it gradually fills with toxic waste, while being transformed into multiple Animal Friends. If a player touches the toxic waste, they will take damage until they lose a life. In the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 2, a Funky's Flights level called Toxic Kongstruction has the Kongs swerving around in their Gyrocopter while collecting pieces of a golden statue of Donkey Kong. Many of the pieces are submerged in toxic waste, but shooting the buttons on the walls can temporarily lower the toxic waste so that the pieces can be collected. Otherwise, if the player touches the toxic waste, the Gyrocopter will explode.

In Donkey Kong 64, there are pools of toxic waste in Creepy Castle, specifically within the lobby, the dungeon, and the mausoleum.
