RCRA Online Number:14003
Date:07/13/1995
To:Bergeson
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Weinberg, Bergeson, and Neuman
Description: Spent antifreeze from radiator flushes may be characteristic. Studies indicate spent antifreeze may be hazardous, primarily due to lead. EPA has not determined the point of generation for like wastes of similar composition when commingled after being produced. Discusses the status of commingling hazardous and nonhazardous antifreeze. If the commingled mixture is no longer hazardous and meets treatment standards, the generator must comply with the Section 268.9 notification requirement. Residues and still bottoms from antifreeze recycling are a newly generated waste. Metal-bearing, high-BTU still bottoms could be burned in a BIF under the dilution prohibition.
