Title:TREATMENT AND DISPOSAL METHODS FOR LOW-LEVEL WASTES THAT CONTAIN UNCONTAMINATED OR RADIOACTIVE LEAD
RCRA Online Number:12956
Date:06/26/1987
To:Husseman
From:Williams
Organization of Recipient:Washington Dept. of Ecology
Description: Activated lead may be stored to allow radioactive decay prior to disposal as a hazardous waste. Mixed waste storage requires a permit. Surface-contaminated lead may be decontaminated. EPA may establish below regulatory concern (BRC) levels for radiation. Container liners used as shielding in low-level waste disposal are not RCRA-regulated. Encapsulation may be a viable treatment for lead wastes if the process results in a product that will not degrade after disposal (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 63464; 11/19/99).
