RCRA Online Number:14644
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: A mixture of a Bevill-exempt waste and a characteristic waste (or a waste listed solely for exhibiting a characteristic) remains subject to the land disposal restrictions (LDR) even if it is no longer hazardous at the point of land disposal. A Bevill mixture is hazardous if it exhibits a characteristic of the non-excluded waste, but not if it exhibits a characteristic imparted by the Bevill waste. LDR attaches at the point of generation. A Bevill mixture must be treated for characteristics and underlying hazardous constituents (UHCs) attributed to the non-excluded portion, but not UHCs uniquely contributed by the Bevill portion. A facility remains subject to all applicable LDR notification requirements. The act of mixing a hazardous waste with a Bevill-exempt waste to render it nonhazardous is treatment, may require a permit, and may be a form of impermissible dilution.
