Title:APPROPRIATE TREATMENT METHODS FOR ELEMENTAL MERCURY
RCRA Online Number:13091
Date:11/18/1987
To:Jackson
From:Weil
Organization of Recipient:Rollins Environmental Services (FS) Inc.
Description: California list wastes containing mercury must be treated to below the land disposal restrictions (LDR) prohibition level or rendered nonliquid (SUPERSEDED: 55 FR 22675; 6/1/90) (SUPERSEDED: California list removed, see 62 FR 25997; 5/12/97). Solidification where reagents are added to immobilize constituents is legitimate treatment and not dilution provided it immobilizes or chemically fixes waste rendering it nonliquid, or reduces the concentration below the prohibition level. EPA prefers waste minimization .
