Title:CLASSIFICATION AND DISPOSAL OF WASTE FLAMELESS RATION HEATERS
RCRA Online Number:14774
Date:10/29/2004
To:Fatz
From:Breen
Organization of Recipient:Department of the Army
Description: The disposal of flameless ration heaters (FRHs) that are discarded by individual soldiers issued Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MREs) is excluded from RCRA Subtitle C regulation under the household waste exclusion. It is unlikely that multiple, unused MREs (that contain FRHs) would be RCRA hazardous waste when disposed. EPA generally considers multiple unused FRHs (not packaged with MREs) that are discarded to be a D003 reactive waste which, therefore, must be managed as a RCRA hazardous waste when disposed.
