3745-52-213 Laboratory clean-outs.

(A) One time per twelve-month period for each laboratory, an eligible academic entity may opt to conduct a laboratory clean-out that is subject to all the applicable requirements of rules 3745-52-200 to 3745-52-216 of the Administrative Code, except that:

(1) If the volume of unwanted material in the laboratory exceeds fifty-five gallons (or one quart of reactive acutely hazardous unwanted material), the eligible academic entity is not required to remove all unwanted materials from the laboratory within ten calendar days after exceeding fifty-five gallons (or one quart of reactive acutely hazardous unwanted material), as required by rule 3745-52-208 of the Administrative Code. Instead, the eligible academic entity must remove all unwanted materials from the laboratory within thirty calendar days from the start of the laboratory clean-out; and

(2) For the purposes of on-site accumulation, an eligible academic entity is not required to count a hazardous waste that is an unused commercial chemical product (listed in rules 3745-51-30 to 3745-51-35 of the Administrative Code or exhibiting one or more characteristics in rules 3745-51-20 to 3745-51-24 of the Administrative Code) generated solely during the laboratory clean-out toward its hazardous waste generator status, pursuant to paragraphs (C) and (D) of rule 3745-51-05 of the Administrative Code. An unwanted material that is generated prior to the beginning of the laboratory clean-out and is still in the laboratory at the time the laboratory clean-out commences must be counted toward hazardous waste generator status, pursuant to paragraphs (C) and (D) of rule 3745-51-05 of the Administrative Code, if it is determined to be hazardous waste; and

(3) For the purposes of off-site management, an eligible academic entity must count all its hazardous waste, regardless of whether the hazardous waste was counted toward generator status under paragraph (A)(2) of this rule, and if it generates more than one kilogram per month of acute hazardous waste or more than one hundred kilograms per month of hazardous waste (i.e., the conditionally exempt small quantity generator limits of rule 3745-51-05 of the Administrative Code), the hazardous waste is subject to all applicable hazardous waste rules when it is transported off-site; and

(4) An eligible academic entity must document the activities of the laboratory clean-out. The documentation must, at a minimum, identify the laboratory being cleaned out, the date the laboratory clean-out begins and ends, and the volume of hazardous waste generated during the laboratory clean-out. The eligible academic entity must maintain the records for a period of three years from the date the clean-out ends; and

(B) For all other laboratory clean-outs conducted during the same twelve-month period, an eligible academic entity is subject to all the applicable requirements of rules 3745-52-200 to 3745-52-216 of the Administrative Code, including, but not limited to:

(1) The requirement to remove all unwanted materials from the laboratory within ten calendar days after exceeding fifty-five gallons (or one quart of reactive acutely hazardous unwanted material), as required by rule 3745-52-208 of the Administrative Code; and

(2) The requirement to count all hazardous waste, including unused hazardous waste, generated during the laboratory clean-out toward its hazardous waste generator status, pursuant to paragraphs (C) and (D) of rule 3745-51-05 of the Administrative Code.
