Description: EPA’s July 1988 regulatory determination (53 FR 25446) stated that regulation of oil and gas exploration & production (E&P) wastes as hazardous wastes under Subtitle C was not warranted. Regulation of E&P wastes would be more effective if left to the states. Packaging materials such as drums, sacks, plastic buckets, pallets, etc., are not covered by the E&P exclusion.
