3745-68-12 Special requirements for ignitable or reactive waste.

(A) Except as provided in rule 3745-68-16 of the Administrative Code, and in paragraph (B) of this rule, ignitable or reactive waste shall not be placed in a landfill, unless the waste and landfill meet all applicable requirements of Chapter 3745-270 of the Administrative Code, and:

(1) The resulting waste, mixture, or dissolution of material no longer meets the definition of ignitable or reactive waste under rule 3745-51-21 or 3745-51-23 of the Administrative Code; and

(2) Paragraph (B) of rule 3745-65-17 of the Administrative Code is complied with.

(B) Except for prohibited wastes which remain subject to treatment standards in rules 3745-270-40 to 3745-270-49 of the Administrative Code, ignitable wastes in containers may be landfilled without meeting the requirements of paragraph (A) of this rule provided that the wastes are disposed in such a way that they are protected from any material or conditions which may cause them to ignite. At a minimum, ignitable wastes shall be disposed of in non-leaking containers which are carefully handled and placed so as to avoid heat, sparks, rupture or any other condition that might cause ignition of the wastes; shall be covered daily with soil or other non-combustible material to minimize the potential for ignition of the wastes; and shall not be disposed of in cells that contain or will contain other wastes which may generate heat sufficient to cause ignition of the waste.
