Title:REVISED DEFINITION OF SOLID WASTE PURSUANT TO HSWA
RCRA Online Number:11089
Date:07/10/1985
To:Suska
From:Skinner
Organization of Recipient:Baltimore City Health Dept.
Description: Carbon regeneration facilities storing carbon before recycling need a permit for storage if they are an incinerator. If they are not an incinerator, they are exempt (may be BIF). Drum recyclers handling empty containers do not need a storage permit. The storage of non-empty containers would require at least a permit for hazardous waste storage. Spent activated charcoal or carbon is usually a spent material. If for pollution control, it would be a sludge. Carbon is hazardous waste (HW) if it contains a listed waste (contained-in policy) or exhibits a characteristic(SEE ALSO: 66 FR 27266; 5/16/01). Carbon is unlikely to exhibit a characteristic. Generators storing HW spent activated carbon are subject to accumulation time regulations. A closed municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) suspected of holding HW is subject to corrective action if the facility requires a permit or interim status and is subject to CERCLA.
