Title:CLARIFICATION OF LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTIONS (LDR) REQUIREMENTS
RCRA Online Number:11815
Date:03/01/1994
To:Dolce
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:GZA-AET Regulatory Services
Description: If a waste is ignitable (D001, high total organic carbon (TOC)) and exhibits the toxicity characteristic for lead (D008), then blending and combustion as a hazardous waste fuel is not impermissible dilution, since the treatment standard for high TOC D001 requires burning. Fuel substitution alone is not sufficient. Ash from burning such metal-bearing wastes must meet the treatment standards for metals. A waste must meet treatment standards for all applicable waste codes before land disposal (SEE ALSO: 268.9(b)). The F001-F005 treatment standards apply only to the constituents used for solvent properties and which triggered the listing. Solvent constituents picked up through use are not subject to the F001-F005 treatment standards. The F005 treatment standard addresses the characteristic of ignitability and so operates in lieu of D001 treatment standard (USE WITH CAUTION: see RPC# 9/28/94 -04). The alternative debris treatment standards may be used even if the debris is contaminated with a waste code whose treatment standard is a specified technology.
