RCRA Online Number:13328
Date:10/05/1989
To:Wagner
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:Labat-Anderson Incorporated
Description: The definition of liquid depends on the specific regulatory application for ignitable (D001), corrosive (D002), and extraction procedure (EP) (SUPERSEDED: see 261.24). For toxic wastes, liquid is defined as the material expressed from the waste in Step 2 of Method 1310. Liquids produced from paint filter test are generally also liquids under Method 1310 (SEE ALSO: 60 FR 3092; January 13, 1995). Only wastes containing a liquid component are subject to the flash point test (ignitability (D001)) and the pH test (corrosivity (D002)). Method 9095 is used to determine if a waste is prohibited from disposal in a landfill for containing free liquids. Method 9096 is a draft procedure for determining if adsorbents contain releasable liquids. Adsorbents containing releasable liquids are prohibited from disposal in a landfill by HSWA.
