Description: Unprocessed, spent printed circuit boards qualify for the scrap metal exclusion as generated. Residuals from the processing of spent circuit boards (e.g., shredded pieces, sweeps, ash, fluff, or baghouse dust) may not qualify as scrap metal, but instead may be spent materials, by-products, or sludges (SEE ALSO: 261.4(a)(14) exclusion for shredded circuit boards). Residual waste generated during scrap metal recycling of printed circuit boards may no longer qualify for the scrap metal exemption, but if it contains significant amounts of precious metals, the waste may be eligible for reduced recycling regulations of Part 266, Subpart F (SEE ALSO: 261.4(a)(13) exclusion for processed scrap metal).
