Title:CLARIFICATION OF ""ACTIVE MANAGEMENT"" IN CLOSING WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITIES (SURFACE IMPOUNDMENTS)
RCRA Online Number:11826
Date:04/06/1994
To:DuBoff
From:Bussard
Organization of Recipient:Winston and Strawn
Description: Remediation involving hazardous waste treatment triggers permitting. Whether in-situ stabilization is treatment is a site-specific determination. The regulatory status of the movement of wastes within an area of contamination (AOC) is discussed. A unit (e.g., surface impoundment) inactive prior to the effective date of applicable RCRA rules is not subject to Subtitle C unless the waste is actively managed. A one-time removal of waste is not active management. Waste removed from a unit is subject to all relevant regulations. Inactive units may be solid waste management units (SWMUs) subject to 3004(u), 3008(h), and/ or 7003 corrective action authorities.
