Title:POSITION PAPER ON SPENT ABSORBENT MATERIALS
RCRA Online Number:11619
Date:06/21/1991
To:Constantelos
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:Safety-Kleen
Description: CESQGs may dispose of hazardous waste in a sanitary or municipal solid waste landfill as long as the landfill is permitted, licensed, or registered by the state to manage municipal or industrial solid waste (SEE ALSO: 261.5(g)(3)). An absorbent and waste mixture containing a free liquid phase with a flash point less than 140 F is D001. A sorbent and waste mixture with no free liquid is D001 only if it qualifies as an ignitable solid. DOT hazard classes do not correspond directly to RCRA characteristics. The deliberate mixing of hazardous waste and absorbents to render waste nonhazardous may be treatment subject to permitting (SEE ALSO: 264.1(g)(10)) and 268.3). If an absorbent is mixed with waste that is listed solely for exhibiting a characteristic, the mixture is not hazardous waste if it does not exhibit the characteristic (SEE ALSO: 66 FR 27266; 5/16/01). A mixture of absorbent and used oil is subject to Part 266, Subpart E (SUPERSEDED: See Part 279) if destined for energy recovery.
