Revisions to the Definition of Solid Waste

On October 7, 2008, EPA’s Administrator signed the Revisions to the Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) final rule (73 FR 64668, October 30, 2008), which excludes certain hazardous secondary materials that are reclaimed from the RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste regulations, provided certain conditions and requirements are met. Under RCRA, to be considered a hazardous waste, a hazardous secondary material must first be determined to be a solid waste.

At this time, West Virginia is not authorized for this rule.  


Episodic Generation

If a company generates enough waste in a given month to classify the generation in a higher category (e.g., small quantity generator to large quantity generator), this is referred to as episodic generation.  A company generating enough waste to be placed in a higher category must notify the DEP in writing and comply with all other regulatory requirements of that category until the waste is removed from the generator’s site.   For more information on episodic generation, please click here


Issuance of provisional (temporary) EPA ID numbers

Persons that have a one-time cleanup of regulated waste can have it legally transported to a proper disposal facility by obtaining this one-time-use US EPA ID number.  The number is issued for a 30-day period.
