Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF CATHODE RAY TUBE (CRT) PROCESSED GLASS SENT TO COPPER SMELTERS
RCRA Online Number:14835
Date:04/24/2013
To:Smith
From:Rudzinski
Organization of Recipient:Sony Electronics, Inc.
Description: Under 40 CFR 261.4(a)(22)(iv), processed cathode ray tube (CRT) glass is excluded from solid and hazardous waste regulation, provided it meets the requirements of 261.39(c). Section 261.39(c) requires that the CRT glass is destined for recycling at a CRT glass manufacturer or a lead smelter and the glass is not speculatively accumulated as defined in 261.1(c)(8). This exclusion does not apply to CRT processed glass sent to copper smelters (SEE ALSO: 71 FR 42928, 42937; July 28, 2006). However, processed CRT glass used as an effective substitute for virgin fluxing agent at copper smelters would be excluded from solid and hazardous waste regulation under 261.2(e)(1)(ii) (SEE ALSO: 71 FR 42928, 42937; July 28, 2006; Memorandum, Shapiro to Richter; March 8, 1995 (RO 11900)).
