A sludge from metal cleaning wastewater associated with electroplating is F006. Routine cleaning, stripping not normally associated with electroplating. The purpose of cleaning, not the location, determines if associated. Metal stripping is part of electroplating. Stripped paint waste listed solely for a characteristic (F003) mixed with a solid waste is hazardous only if it is characteristic (SEE ALSO: 66 FR 27266; 5/16/01). Discussion of mixture rule wastewater exclusions (SEE: 261.3(a)(2)(iv)). F007-F009 are for cyanide electroplating solutions or where cyanides are used in the process.
