There is no widespread evidence of illegal, sham recycling of hazardous waste in fertilizers. Fertilizers from recycled hazardous waste account for less than one-half of one percent of the total fertilizer market. The use of fertilizers derived from K061 is declining. Most fertilizers made from hazardous waste are zinc micronutrient fertilizers. New regulations for zinc fertilizers made from recycled hazardous waste have been finalized (SEE ALSO: 67 FR 48393; July 24, 2002).
