Title:CONTRACTORS AS COGENERATORS OF UNIVERSAL WASTE LAMPS
RCRA Online Number:14719
Date:07/01/2004
To:NA
From:NA
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: A universal waste handler is a generator of universal waste or the owner or operator of a facility that receives universal waste from other universal waste handlers. A generator is any person, by site, whose act or process first causes hazardous waste to become subject to regulation. The contractor that actually removes the universal waste lamps from service is considered a handler and the generator of waste. Therefore, the school and the contractor would be cogenerators. Both cogenerators are jointly and severally liable as universal waste handlers. EPA recommends that cogenerators should mutually agree to have one party perform the generator duties.
