Hazardous Waste Management System - Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste - Recycled Used Oil Management Standards - Federal Register Notice, September 10, 1992

The Agency is promulgating a final listing decision for used oils that are recycled and is simultaneously promulgating standards for the management of used oil under RCRA section 3014. EPA has made a final listing decision for used oils that are recycled based upon the technical criteria provided in sections 1004 and 3001 of RCRA. EPA determined that recycled used oil does not have to be listed as a hazardous waste since the used oil management standards issued in this rulemaking are adequately protective of human health and the environment.
