RCRA Online Number:11565
To:RCRA Docket, HQ
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Variances from the definition of solid waste (SW) are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Most used refrigerants being reclaimed do not qualify for a variance from the definition of SW (SUPERSEDED: see 261.4(b)(12)). Reclamation can include filtration to reinsertion into a refrigerant manufacturing unit (SUPERSEDED: see 261.4(b)(12)). Used refrigerants are spent materials, not CCPs or by-products, and are SW if reclaimed. The spent material definition carries a plain language meaning. Used refrigerant that is directly reused as a refrigerant is the continued use of a product and is not SW.
