Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF RECYCLING FOUNDRY SANDS AND FUTURE CHANGES TO THE REGULATIONS GOVERNING HAZARDOUS WASTE RECYCLING
RCRA Online Number:14226
Date:04/22/1996
To:Richter
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:American Foundrymen’s Society
Description: The Agency is engaged in an effort to change the RCRA regulations governing hazardous waste recycling. EPA wants to remove disincentives to recycling, target those recycling practices with greatest environmental concern, and clarify and simplify the regulations. The possible options for these changes are still under evaluation, and may affect the regulatory status of certain foundry sands. Two options being considered would clarify RCRA jurisdiction to exclude legitimate on-site recycling unless it involved burning for energy recovery, land placement or speculative accumulation, and would eliminate the current distinction between reuse and reclamation.
