RCRA Online Number:14615
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The Hazardous Waste Characteristics Scoping Study reviewed the effectiveness of the current hazardous waste characteristics regulations to identify whether other waste properties should be used to classify waste as hazardous or if the current characteristics should be expanded. EPA also collected data on toxic chemical releases from landfills. The current regulations ensure that most hazardous waste is addressed properly, but the Scoping Study identified areas that deserve additional investigation, including waste constituent releases to air and identifying supplements to the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP). EPA has set priorities for completion of follow-up studies. Any revision of the TC regulation would have to take into account a number of considerations, including updated groundwater models.
