(A) The following table lists hazardous wastes from non-specific sources, along with industry and EPA hazardous waste numbers and hazard codes for these hazardous wastes:
(B) Listing-specific definitions.
(1) For the purposes of the F037 and F038 listings, "oil/water/solids" is defined as oil and/or water and/or solids.
(a) For the purposes of the F037 and F038 listings, an "aggressive biological treatment unit" is defined as a unit which employs one of the following four treatment methods:
(i) Activated sludge;
(ii) Trickling filter;
(iii) Rotating biological contactor for the continuous accelerated biological oxidation of wastewaters; or
(iv) High-rate aeration. High-rate aeration is a system of surface impoundments or tanks, in which intense mechanical aeration is used to completely mix the wastes, enhance biological activity, and the unit employs a minimum of six horse power per million gallons of treatment volume; and either
(a) The hydraulic retention time of the unit is no longer than five days; or
(b) The hydraulic retention time of the unit is no longer than thirty days, and the unit does not generate a sludge that is a hazardous waste by the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure.
(b) Generators and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities have the burden of proving that their sludges are exempt from listings as F037 and F038 wastes under this definition. Generators and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities must maintain, in their operating or other on-site records, documents and the data sufficient to prove that:
(i) The unit is an aggressive biological treatment unit as defined in this rule; and
(ii) The sludges sought to be exempted from the definitions of F037 and/or F038 were actually generated in the aggressive biological treatment unit.
[ Comment: For purposes of paragraphs (B)(2)(b) to (B)(2)(b)(ii) of this rule and the F037 and F038 listings in this rule, "exempt" means not included under the definition of F037 and/or F038 with respect to determining the status of this material as a hazardous waste.]
(a) For the purposes of the F037 listing, sludges are considered to be generated at the moment of deposition in the unit, where deposition is defined as at least a temporary cessation of lateral particle movement.
(b) For the purposes of the F038 listing,
(i) Sludges are considered to be generated at the moment of deposition in the unit, where deposition is defined as at least a temporary cessation of lateral particle movement, and
(ii) Floats are considered to be generated at the moment they are formed in the top of the unit.
(4) For the purposes of the F019 listing, the following apply to wastewater treatment sludges from the manufacturing of motor vehicles using a zinc phosphating process.
(a) Motor vehicle manufacturing is defined to include the manufacture of automobiles and light trucks/utility vehicles (including light duty vans, pickup trucks, minivans, and sport utility vehicles). Facilities must be engaged in manufacturing complete vehicles (body and chassis or unibody) or chassis only.
(b) Generators must maintain in their on-site records documentation and information sufficient to prove that the wastewater treatment sludges to be exempted from the F019 listing meet the conditions of the listing. These records must include the volume of waste generated and disposed of off site, documentation showing when the waste volumes were generated and sent off site, the name and address of the receiving facility, and documentation confirming receipt of the waste by the receiving facility. Generators must maintain these documents on site for no less than three years. The retention period for the documentation is automatically extended during the course of any enforcement action or as requested by the director.
