Emptying a steel OBA canister could be an exempt scrap steel recycling process if the canisters are to be recycled (SEE ALSO: 261.4(a)(13) exclusion for processed scrap metal). Emptying canisters to render them nonhazardous prior to disposal may be regulated treatment. HW canisters may be accumulated on-site without a permit under 262.34. Tanks meeting the wastewater treatment unit definition are exempt from permitting requirements.
