    Document DateDocument TitleDocument Type
    12/14/2011RESOURCE CONSERVATION AND RECOVERY ACT (RCRA) BIENNIAL REPORT REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPREHENSIVE ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSE, COMPENSATION, AND LIABILITY ACT (CERCLA) RESPONSE ACTIONSMemo
    Description: For purposes of CERCLA response actions, EPA considers the RCRA biennial reporting requirement to be an administrative requirement, which only applies to off-site actions. Therefore, any RCRA hazardous waste generated on-site as part of a Superfund response action and managed on-site must comply with all substantive RCRA requirements but need not comply with administrative requirements, such as RCRA biennial reporting requirements. Any RCRA hazardous waste generated on-site and managed off-site is subject to all RCRA requirements, including, where applicable, biennial report requirements. RCRA regulations require biennial reporting from large quantity generators (LQGs). Hazardous waste generators at CERCLA sites may either report all RCRA hazardous waste managed off-site without evaluating whether they are an LQG or determine if, in any calendar month, the site is an LQG, and if so, report all RCRA hazardous waste that is generated on-site, but managed off-site for the entire calendar year.
     
    04/11/2014LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTION (LDR) REQUIREMENTSMemo
    Description: Prohibited wastes (wastes that do not meet the applicable treatment standard) cannot be placed in or on land disposal units unless the unit satisfies the statutory no-migration standards. The statute draws no distinction in the duration of disposal. ‘Temporary’ placement in a land disposal unit is “land disposal” just as much as is permanent disposal. Storage areas and containers in or on a landfill are considered land disposal.
