Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF GASOLINE SPILLS
RCRA Online Number:14650
Date:02/02/1998
To:Gable
From:Fields
Organization of Recipient:State of West Virginia, Bureau of the Environment
Description: A gasoline spill on the ground at a product storage facility could be a solid waste because the product has been discarded by being abandoned. Disposal of a hazardous waste has occurred if the spilled and abandoned material exhibits a characteristic. Spilled gasoline becomes a waste when it exits the unit, enters the environment, and is not promptly recovered or cleaned up. An implementing agency can require cleanup of a spill to site-specific levels. In rare cases, the spill area may be considered a land disposal unit (SEE ALSO: RPC# 9/29/1986-02). The recovered free product is potentially not a solid waste if it is reused for its original purpose or reclaimed.
