Waste Designation Decision Matrix - Other Considerations
40 CFR 261.6 contains special requirements for "Recyclable Materials":
- Many are regulated under 40 CFR 266.
- Some are excluded from most RCRA regulatory requirements; examples include reclaimed industrial ethyl alcohol, used batteries returned to the manufacturer for regeneration, and scrap metal.
- Some recyclable materials may be subject to relaxed requirements under the Universal Waste Rule.
Containers that held an acutely hazardous waste must be cleaned and managed in accordance with 40 CFR 261.7(b)(3) .
