Solvent-Contaminated Wipes Exclusion/RCRA Guidance: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Addresses Application of Recycling Provisions

Read the full story from JD Supra.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) issued a June 11th interpretive letter addressing the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”) solvent-contaminated wipes exclusions (“Exclusions”)found at 40 C.F.R. 261.4(a)(26) and 40 C.F.R. 261.4(b)(18).

EPA addressed whether the Exclusions preclude a RCRA generator from using other RCRA recycling provisions such as:

  • Generator-controlled exclusion at 40 C.F.R. 261.4(a)(23)
  • Recyclable material requirements at 40 C.F.R. 261.6
