On April 4, 1983, EPA proposed to amend its existing definition of solid waste used in regulations implementing Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Most of the proposal dealt with the question of which materials are solid and hazardous wastes when they are recycled. The Agency also proposed general and specific standards for various types of hazardous waste recycling activities.
This rule, published on January 4, 1985, clarified the extent of EPA's jurisdiction over hazardous waste recycling activities and set forth the regulatory regime for recycling activities subject to the Agency's jurisdiction.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
