Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF SPENT IGNITION TUBES AFTER SENT FOR RECLAMATION
RCRA Online Number:11419
Date:04/14/1989
To:Oleszko
From:Cochran
Organization of Recipient:HazMat Environmental Group, Inc.
Description: Used ignitron tubes sent off-site for mercury reclamation are spent materials and solid wastes, not commercial chemical products (CCPs). The purity of the mercury within the tube is not a consideration when determining whether the ignitron tube itself meets the definition of spent material (the tube is what becomes spent). If mercury is removed from the tube on-site and only mercury is sent for direct reuse or further refining, mercury is product and not solid waste.
