Description: Paint wastes are exempt household hazardous wastes (HHW) if they are generated by homeowners and not by contractors (SUPERSEDED: RPC# 3/1/90-06). HHW from federal agencies is not HHW. Certain material and soil contaminated with weathering lead based paint is characteristic for lead. If characteristic soil is actively managed, it is a hazardous waste. Discusses lead paint remediation methods (SEE ALSO: RPC# 3/7/95-01). A property owner is normally not required to characterize soil left on site. Addresses factors in determining if soil removal is required. On-site soil treatment needs a permit unless the generator is exempt (SEE ALSO: 61 FR 18779; 4/29/96).
