Federal Register Notice: Land Disposal Restrictions for Certain 'California List' Hazardous Waste and Modifications to the Framework

On July 8, 1987, EPA promulgated regulations restricting land disposal of certain "California list" wastes: liquid hazardous wastes containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) above specified concentrations and hazardous wastes containing halogenated organic compounds (HOCs) above specified concentrations (volume 52 of the Federal Register or FR, page 25760). In addition, this final rule codified the statutory land disposal prohibitions on certain California list corrosive wastes. This action also established methods for determining compliance with the prohibitions and modifies portions of the land disposal restrictions framework which was promulgated on November 7, 1986 (51 FR 40572).
