Title:USED OIL FILTERS - REGULATION; USED OIL FILTERS, REGULATORY DETERMINATION
RCRA Online Number:11566
Date:10/30/1990
To:Duprey, Region 8
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Crushing a filter to remove used oil (UO) is exempt if the removed UO is recycled (SUPERSEDED: see 261.6(a)(4) and 279.10(c)). Generally, used auto oil filters are not containers because they are not storing oil. Filters are not empty containers. A filter with UO removed is exempt scrap metal if it is recycled. Undrained, uncrushed filters have too much oil for the scrap metal exemption (SEE ALSO: 261.4(b)(13)). TCLP is performed on UO filters by crushing, cutting, or grinding filters and their contents until the pieces are smaller than one cm in the narrowest dimension. A characteristic UO filter that is sent for disposal is subject to regulation (SUPERSEDED: see 261.4(b)(13)).
