Title:TREATMENT OF MERCURY-BEARING HAZARDOUS WASTES BEFORE DISPOSAL
RCRA Online Number:14666
Date:04/28/2003
To:Corrigan
From:Horinko
Organization of Recipient:Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
Description: Mercury-bearing hazardous wastes originate from several sources, including households, industry, and cleanup sites. Different federal and state regulations govern such wastes depending on their source. EPA is reaching out to states and municipalities to improve their understanding of the management and disposal of mercury-bearing wastes from different sources. Some mercury-bearing wastes are treated using the alternative land disposal restrictions (LDR) debris treatment standards in 268.45 as opposed to the treatment standards requiring retorting in 268.40. EPA is investigating whether mercury-containing debris are typically disposed of in landfills, with or without treatment, or reclaimed through retorting. (SEE ALSO: 70 FR 45508; 8/5/05)
