Title:APPLICABILITY OF RCRA TO DISPOSAL OF UNIFIED GROUP RATION - EXPRESS (UGR-E)
RCRA Online Number:14772
Date:05/21/2007
To:Davis
From:Bodine
Organization of Recipient:Department of the Army
Description: For disposal of expired flameless heaters in Unified Group Ration - Express (UGR-E), EPA believes that it is unlikely that intact UGR-Es would be RCRA hazardous waste when disposed. For disposal of unused, individual chemical heaters by a unit, although the heaters may exhibit the characteristic of reactivity, EPA believes unused individual heaters taken from an UGR-E issued for use in the field are excluded under the household waste exclusion. Therefore, EPA urges generators and handlers to manage unused heaters carefully and recycle them if possible.
