RCRA Online Number:14664
Organization of Recipient:U.S. House of Representatives
Description: Mercury-containing hazardous wastes come from several sources, including households, industry, and cleanup sites. Federal and state regulations differ for such wastes depending on their source. EPA is working with states to determine how mercury-containing devices are managed by collection programs and is consulting Regional offices to track the disposition of mercury cleanup wastes. In order to divert mercury-containing products from municipal and hazardous wastestreams, EPA has proposed to add mercury-containing equipment to the universal waste rule and has initiated several outreach programs that promote the recycling of mercury lamps and other mercury wastes (SUPERCEDED: 70 FR 45508; 8/5/05).
