Description: The sludge definition is tied to the type of unit in which a waste is generated, not the disposition of the treated effluent or the intent of processing. Ion exchange resin used to filter electroplating wastewater is F006 regardless of whether it exhibits a hazardous characteristic. The act of filtering contaminants from wastewater is pollution control and generates a sludge, even if the intent is to reclaim the wastewater for reuse in a production process.
