RCRA Online Number:14322
Organization of Recipient:Department of the Navy
Description: F006 wastewater treatment sludges include sludges from any type of treatment (e.g., chemical, biological, or simple settling). The domestic sewage exclusion does not extend to private or other non-municipal treatment works (SEE ALSO: FFCA added federally owned treatment works (FOTW) to the exclusion). A mixture of sewage and other wastes en route to a non-municipal treatment works does not cease to be a solid waste. The waste’s identity relevant to hazardous waste listings (i.e., F006) continues throughout the treatment works. The mixture rule exemption for laboratory wastes in 261.3(a)(2)(iv)(E) applies to laboratories discharging diverse, diluted amounts of listed toxic wastes. An electroplating shop located within a larger research and development (R&D) facility is not a laboratory, nor does it generate dilute wastewaters characteristic of an R&D laboratory.
