Title:GUIDANCE FROM THE U.S. EPA ON THE CRUSHING OF MERCURY-CONTAINING LAMPS
RCRA Online Number:11906
Date:06/05/1995
To:Jenkins
From:Petruska
Organization of Recipient:Alabama Dept. of Environmental Management
Description: Crushing mercury lamps can be part of an exempt legitimate recycling process. The recycling exemption can apply even if portions of recycling are performed at different sites. A crusher carries the burden to ensure bulbs are actually recycled (SUPERSEDED: lamp crushing by universal waste handlers prohibited; see 64 FR 36466, 36477-36478; 7/6/99). EPA is still weighing options proposed in the 7/27/94 Federal Register (59 FR 38288) for streamlining fluorescent lamp regulation. The universal waste rule streamlines the regulations for hazardous waste batteries (battery), pesticides, and mercury thermostats (SEE ALSO: 70 FR 45508; 8/5/05). States may add additional wastes (e.g., fluorescent lamps) to the state universal waste list and establish management standards.
