Title:COMPLIANCE WITH THE STORAGE REQUIREMENTS OF 40 CFR 265.17(A) AND 265.176 FOR IGNITABLE OR REACTIVE HAZARDOUS WASTE
RCRA Online Number:14840
Date:02/26/2014
To:Armbruster
From:Devlin
Organization of Recipient:JE Compliance Services, Inc.
Description: A large quantity generator (LQG) must comply with both 40 CFR 265.17(a) and Part 265, Subpart I, including the 50 foot boundary requirement for containers holding ignitable and reactive hazardous waste in 265.176. Section 265.176 is taken from the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Flammable and Combustible Code of 1977 (NFPA 30). If a LQG is able to comply with 265.17(a) but unable to comply with the 50 foot boundary requirement for the accumulation of ignitable and reactive hazardous waste in 265.176, EPA recommends that the generator work with the EPA regional office or state inspector to determine if the local fire department or fire marshal will provide a written waiver from having to comply with the 50 foot boundary requirement.
