RCRA Online Number:14689
Date:01/06/2004
To:Regions
From:Springer and Jones
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: Discarded arsenical-treated wood or wood products that are utilized for their intended end use and are only hazardous for waste codes D004 through D017 are excluded from RCRA regulation in 261.4(b)(9). Intended end uses of arsenical-treated wood products, including CCA-treated wood, are as building materials. CCA-treated wood used to produce wood mulch is not the materials' intended end use. Therefore, wood mulch produced from CCA-treated wood is not excluded in 261.4(b)(9). The Consumer Awareness Program (CAP) and the Consumer Safety Information Sheet for Inorganic Arsenical Pressure-Treated Wood discourage the use of CCA-treated wood as mulch.
