Title:CLARIFICATION ON WHAT CONSTITUTES DIOXIN RELATED MATERIALS
RCRA Online Number:13586
Date:12/24/1992
To:Noles
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:Laidlaw Environmental Services (TS), Inc.
Description: Contains a list of waste codes that contain dioxin (F020, F022, F023, F026, F027, F028, F032, D017, D041, D042). The F-listed dioxin waste codes do not apply if waste contains dioxin but does not meet the listing description. Waste exhibits the toxicity characteristic only if the level of constituent exceeds the regulatory level. F039, K043, and K099 have land disposal restrictions (LDR) for certain dioxins and furans. If waste meets the listing description, the waste code applies even if no Appendix VIII constituents are present. For purposes of F021, a pentachlorophenol derivative includes any substance which is related structurally and can be made from pentachlorophenol (PCP), including sodium pentachlorophenate, octachlorodibenzodioxin, octachlorodiphenyl ether, and potassium pentachlorophenate. Derivatives from tri- and tetrachlorophenol include tri- and tetra-chlorophenoxy derivatives of carboxylic acids. F020 -F023, F026-F028 hazardous waste must be incinerated in an unit meeting 99.9999 DRE or burned in thermal treatment unit meeting same DRE. Waste that contains Appendix VII constituents but cannot be traced to the original process that would generate the waste meeting listing description is exempt from regulation unless characteristic.
