Step 5:

Documentation of the Non-Hazardous Determination

You have indicated that the solid waste is not a hazardous waste. There are no regulatory requirements to document your waste is non-hazardous however, Volume 81, No. 228 of the CFR (page 85753) states, ”… inspectors have the existing authority to require a generator to perform a waste determination during an inspection to support their finding that the waste of concern is not a hazardous waste if no documentation exists.”

If you choose, you may document the basis of your non-hazardous waste determination including any test results, material data sheets, process information, exclusions and any other supporting documentation.

Note: If this material is destined for processing and/or disposal in Tennessee, Special Waste Evaluation/Approval may be required.
