RCRA Online Number:13186
To:Directors, Regions 1-10
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: The proposed delay of closure rule (53 FR 20738; 6/30/88) would allow owners and operators of landfills and certain surface impoundments to delay closure to receive nonhazardous waste. Units which have lost interim status are not eligible for a delay of closure. Owners of units who wish to delay closure must obtain a permit or permit modification. Surface impoundments that are not retrofitted to meet the minimum technological requirements are subject to special requirements if the owner wishes to delay closure. Units that delay closure remain subject to Subtitle C. Units remain subject to the closure plan submission deadlines despite the proposed delay of closure rule (53 FR 20738; 6/30/88). Because the proposed rule is less stringent than the existing closure regulations, authorized states are not required to adopt the new provisions. Interim status units that cease receiving hazardous waste on 11/8/88 may continue to receive nonhazardous wastes until the closure plan is approved as well as during the closure period provided it does not impede closure.
