Title:PAINT RECYCLING
RCRA Online Number:14084
Date:04/11/1997
To:Thomas
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Jetco, Inc.
Description: Paint or coating remixed and used for its intended purpose is not a solid waste. If paint is discarded, the generator must make a hazardous waste determination. Discarded paints generally are not listed wastes, but they may exhibit characteristics such as ignitability or toxicity. Paint generated by a CESQG is not subject to federal regulation provided the waste is discarded at a facility meeting Section 261.5(f) or (g). Paint collected from households is exempt from regulation, even if the paint is subsequently discarded. Household hazardous waste (HHW) mixed with regulated hazardous waste in a collection program is regulated. Paint cans emptied under the empty container provisions are not subject to regulation because they do not hold regulated residues.
