RCRA Online Number:11025
Date:01/11/1983
To:Rubenstein
From:Skinner
Organization of Recipient:National Solid Wastes Management Association
Description: Recontouring a final cover and adjusting in-place waste is not considered receipt of hazardous waste at a closed facility. Closure and post-closure plans are to account for vegetation and liquid inputs. Landfill closure standards require a final cover to minimze the migration of liquids through the closed landfill. Discussion of the addition of liquids during versus after closure (may be allowed during closure, including leachate recirculation, if part of closure plan). The recirculation of leachate during operation is not a closure activity. Receipt of hazardous waste after 1/26/83 causes impoundment or landfill to be a regulated unit, but redeposit of treated waste during closure does not make the unit regulated unit. If a landfill is a series of separately lined trenches, each trench is a separate waste management unit.
