RCRA Online Number:14839
Organization of Recipient:Global Environmental Services
Description: The regulations at 261.4(a)(22) and 261.39 would apply to the recycling of used cathode ray tubes (CRTs), both intact and broken. The exclusion at 261.39(c) only applies to processed CRT glass sent for recycling to a CRT glass manufacturer or a lead smelter; the provision would not apply to a mechanical process used to recycle CRT glass into lead and silica sand. The generator of the hazardous CRT glass may recycle the glass in an on-site hazardous waste generator accumulation unit without a hazardous waste permit, provided they are in compliance with the applicable requirements in 262.34 and the treatment is not thermal treatment. If the lead or silica were applied to or placed on the land or used in foundations or other land placement activities, EPA would consider it to be a recycled material used in a manner constituting disposal and subject to the regulations in Part 266, Subpart C. These regulations require that the product of the recycling meet the applicable land disposal restriction (LDR) treatment standards in Part 268, Subpart D prior to placing the material on the land. Under RCRA, all recycling must meet the criteria for legitimate recycling.
