Title:CLARIFICATION ON WHEN USED MERCURY RELAYS/SWITCHES BECOME SPENT
RCRA Online Number:11876
Date:09/28/1994
To:Green
From:Bussard
Organization of Recipient:Applied Environmental Sciences, Inc.
Description: Mercury switches taken out of service and reclaimed are spent materials and solid wastes (SW). Sending a mercury switch for further use as a relay or switch is the continued use of a product. The actual management of a material rather than the potential of a material for a particular end use determines if it is a SW. Whether a switch is spent or directly reusable is determined when it is removed from service. Out-of-date drugs are off-specification CCPs and not a SW when returned to the pharmaceutical manufacturer for reclamation. Persons may petition to include switches/relays as a universal waste (SEE ALSO: 70 FR 45508; 8/5/05).
