Title:SCOPE OF THE SHREDDED CIRCUIT BOARDS EXCLUSION
RCRA Online Number:14692
Date:12/01/2003
To:NA
From:NA
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: Circuit boards that have mercury switches, mercury relays, nickel-cadmium batteries, and lithium batteries removed prior to shredding and that are containerized prior to recycling are eligible for the exclusion in 261.4(a)(14). The exclusion is limited to circuit boards free of these items to prevent environmental releases of mercury, cadmium, and lithium. "Free of" does not mean that the whole circuit boards never contained these items, but that these items are not part of the circuit boards when they are shredded (SEE ALSO: 62 FR 26013; May 12, 1997). If the items are removed from whole circuit boards prior to shredding, the boards remain covered by the exclusion. Shredded circuit boards that are not free of these items are solid wastes and may be hazardous wastes when recycled.
