Title:CLOSURE REQUIREMENTS
RCRA Online Number:13135
Date:02/02/1988
To:Wagoner, Region 7
From:Williams
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: EPA recognizes the inconsistencies between the tank and container closure requirements and plans to revise Subpart I to ensure consistency. The 3/19/87 clean closure guidance (52 FR 8704) should be applied to closure by the removal of wastes from any RCRA unit. EPA plans to allow interim status and permitted landfills to defer closure to manage nonhazardous wastes. Characteristic waste must be managed as hazardous unless it no longer exhibits any of the four characteristics. Discusses the more protective clean closure action levels v. hazardous waste identification levels. Listed wastes and any waste residues or contaminated soil or debris removed during closure are hazardous unless delisted. The concentrations of total organic carbon (TOC) and total organic halogens (TOX) cannot be used to determine if decontamination wastewater is hazardous.
