  • System Changes:
    • March 2005, Several issues were reported by users about the Full Text Search not performing as expected. As a result the database index was rebuilt and the search issues have been resolved.
    • September 2004, Redesigned the Advanced Search Page, removed unused fields, added an "OSW Policy?" field, added another value to the "Document Type" drop-down list, new value is "Question and Answer". Redesigned the Detail screens, removed several unused fields. Updated the "Regulatory Citation" field to display values as hyperlinks that link to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts or subparts found at the Access GPO website for e-CFR, Part 40, Chapter I (http://www.gpoaccess.gov/cfr/index.html). Updated the "Statutory Citation" field to display values as hyperlinks that link to the specific public laws found at the Legal Information Institute web site (http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/42/ch82.html)
    • April 2003, New RCRA Online Trifold PDF File Published. Removed reference to the Fax On Demand system now that it is no longer used. Redesigned the Advanced Search Page to make it more user friendly.
    • Results of topic, full text and advanced searches will now include not only documents but publications and other outreach materials that have been developed and distributed by the Office of Solid Waste.

    The following is a list of Memos/Letters, Questions and Answers, and Publications from the most recent months update. Click on the 'Title' to view the details of the record.

    Document DateDocument TitleDocument Type
    09/10/2014USE OF CATHODE RAY TUBE (CRT) GLASS AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR LEAD OXIDE IN THE MANUFACTURING OF CERAMIC TILESMemo
    Description: Based on the information provided for a scenario of processing cathode ray tube (CRT) funnel glass and exporting the glass to be used as a substitute for lead oxide in the production of ceramic tiles, EPA finds the legitimate recycling factors set forth in EPA policy appear to have been met. Specifically, the CRT funnel glass provides a useful contribution both to the recycling process and to the product of the recycling; the recycling process produces a valuable product, the ceramic tiles; the hazardous secondary material, the CRT funnel glass, is managed as a valuable commodity; and the product of the recycling process, the ceramic tiles, is comparable to a legitimate product. Therefore, EPA finds that the CRT funnel glass legitimately used as an effective substitute in the production of ceramic tiles to be excluded from the solid and hazardous waste regulations under 40 CFR 261.2(e). Additionally, because CRT funnel glass managed under this exclusion would not be RCRA hazardous waste in the United States, the CRT glass would not be subject to notice and consent under US export regulations in Part 262, Subparts E or H. However, because CRT glass is a listed hazardous waste under the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's (OECD) Council Decision, it would be subject to applicable regulations in the countries of transit and import implementing the OECD Council Decision.
     
    09/10/2014RESPONSE TO QUESTIONS ON PROCESSED CATHODE RAY TUBE (CRT) GLASS USED AS ALTERNATIVE DAILY COVERMemo
    Description: Grinding and stabilizing cathode ray tube (CRT) glass, a D008 hazardous waste, is considered treatment. Treatment of hazardous waste generally requires a RCRA Part B permit; however, a permit would not be required for treatment of CRT glass if such treatment is conducted by the generator of the hazardous CRT glass in compliance with applicable 40 CFR 262.34 generator requirements, as well as the Part 268 land disposal restrictions (LDRs), and the treatment is not thermal treatment. EPA Method 1311 must be used on CRT glass to determine compliance with the LDR treatment standards, and any underlying hazardous constituents in the CRT glass must be treated to attain the universal treatment standards in 268.48. If CRT glass is not excluded as a solid waste under 261.2(e)(1)(ii) or 261.4(a)(22), then that CRT glass would be subject to solid and hazardous waste regulations at the point of generation. The point of generation for CRT glass would be when a person decides to discard the glass and it becomes a solid waste, and the person making the decision is the generator of solid waste. CRT glass that has been treated in accordance with LDRs and that no longer exhibits hazardous characteristics may be disposed in a municipal or Subtitle D landfill, including use of treated CRT glass as alternative daily cover.
