Title:APPLICABILITY OF THE HOUSEHOLD WASTE EXCLUSION TO ARSENIC-CONTAMINATED PLANTS
RCRA Online Number:14673
Date:06/23/2003
To:Ferguson
From:Springer
Organization of Recipient:Edenspace Systems Corporation
Description: Excluded household hazardous waste (HHW) must be generated by individuals on the premises of a household and composed primarily of materials found in wastes generated by consumers in their homes (SEE ALSO: 49 FR 44978, 11/13/84; 63 FR 70241, 12/18/98; RPC# 3/7/1995-08; RPC# 7/31/2000-01). Arsenic-contaminated plants generated at a home may qualify for the HHW exclusion if the contamination results from normal household activities (e.g., residential use of CCA-treated wood or pesticide). If the contamination results from significant arsenic sources other than household activities (e.g., industrial or mining activities), the exclusion is not applicable. HHW does not have to be generated by a homeowner to be eligible. The generator may be a resident "do-it-yourselfer" or a contractor.
