3745-56-57 Special requirements for incompatible wastes.

(A) Incompatible wastes, or incompatible wastes and materials (see the appendix to rule 3745-55-99 of the Administrative Code for examples), shall not be placed in the same pile, unless paragraph (B) of rule 3745-54-17 of the Administrative Code is complied with.

(B) A pile of hazardous waste that is incompatible with any waste or other material stored nearby in other containers, piles, open tanks, or surface impoundments shall be separated from the other materials, or protected from them by means of a dike, berm, wall, or other device.

[Comment: The purpose of this requirement is to prevent fires, explosions, gaseous emissions, leaching, or other discharge which could result from the contact or mixing of incompatible wastes or materials.]

(C) Hazardous waste shall not be piled on the same base where incompatible wastes or materials were previously piled, unless the base has been decontaminated sufficiently to ensure compliance with paragraph (B) of rule 3745-54-17 of the Administrative Code.

[Comment: As required by rule 3745-54-13 of the Administrative Code, a waste analysis plan shall include analysis needed to comply with this rule. Also paragraph (C) of rule 3745-54-17 of the Administrative Code requires waste analyses, trial tests, or other documentation to assure compliance with paragraph (B) of rule 3745-54-17 of the Administrative Code. As required by rule 3745-54-73 of the Administrative Code, the owner or operator shall place the results of each waste analysis and trial test and any documented information in the operating record of the facility.]
