Title:RAILROAD TIES AS HAZARDOUS WASTES UNDER THE MIXTURE RULE, SMALL QUANTITY GENERATOR
RCRA Online Number:12012
Date:11/17/1980
To:Stowe
From:Dietrich
Organization of Recipient:Boston Edison
Description: Products that contain listed CCPs, such as railroad ties or asbestos insulation, are not listed CCPs when they are discarded. The mixture rule applies to CCPs being mixed with solid wastes. The point of generation for a CCP is “instantly when the act of discarding takes place.” Incorporating CCPs like creosote and asbestos into a product is not mixing with solid waste. A company with several operations on one site is a single generator. Even if each operation qualified as an SQG, the total site waste production may make all operations LQGs. If a facility is an LQG, all wastes must be handled as LQG waste, even wastes that are produced in small quantities or intermittently (SUPERSEDED: see current 261.5, 262.34(d)).
