Title:INTERPRETATION OF THE RCRA IGNITABILITY CHARACTERISTIC WITH REGARD TO ACETONE WIPES
RCRA Online Number:14405
Date:12/08/1999
To:Schultz
From:Bussard
Organization of Recipient:Durel Corporation
Description: Whether solvent-contaminated rags, wipers, or towels contain a listed hazardous waste, are mixed with a listed hazardous waste, only exhibit a characteristic, or are not a waste at all depends on site-specific factors best evaluated by Region or State implementing agency (SEE ALSO: RPC# 2/14/94-01). ASTM Method D4982-89, Method A is not appropriate for determining ignitability. Method 1030 assesses a solids tendency to burn vigorously and persistently, but does not address the mode of ignition. Ignitability for non-liquids should be determined using generator knowledge.
