Title:DISPOSAL OF OIL SLUDGE FROM OLD OIL TANKS
RCRA Online Number:14550
Date:06/20/2001
To:Clarke
From:McAlister
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The regulatory status of oil and oil sludge wastes removed from old tanks will depend upon whether the oil is used or unused, the source of the oil, and whether the oil sludge meets the definition of a hazardous waste. If the oil is unused, then the generator must make a hazardous waste determination based on testing or knowledge of the waste. Nonhazardous liquid oil may be mixed with an absorbant and disposed of in a municipal landfill. If the oil waste is hazardous, the waste must be managed in accordance with state and federal regulations. There are special federal exclusions for generators of less than 100 kg/month which may not be allowed by certain state regulations. Generators of hazardous waste are primarily liable for waste mismanagement, although any person may be held liable for violating RCRA regulations.
