Custom Search  Manifesting.  A generator who transports, or offers for
transportation, hazardous waste for offsite treatment must prepare a manifest
0MB control number 2000-0404 on EPA Form 8700-22, and if necessary an EPA Form
8700-22A according to instructions in the Appendix of 40 CFR 62.
The manifest will contain:
Generator's U.S. EPA identification number
generator's name, mailing address, and phone number
name and U.S. EPA identification number for each transporter
designated disposal facility name, site address, and U.S. EPA
identification number
U.S. DOT description
number and type of containers for each waste
total quantity of each waste
special handling instructions
generator's dated signature.  Storage.  Waste generators may accumulate hazardous waste
onsite without a permit for 90 days or less after the date of generation. The
accumulation date normally starts when a waste is first placed into a container
or unused material is declared as waste.  An exception to the regulation is
allowed if wastes are collected at or near the point of generation.  A satellite
storage area is the waste collection area at or near the point of generation.
The accumulation start date for wastes collected in this manner is the date the
container is full or the quantity of hazardous waste exceeds 55 gal or the
quantity of acutely toxic waste exceeds 1 qt. Hazardous wastes generated at the
shops are collected in appropriately labeled cans or drums adjacent to the work
areas.  When they become full, they are moved to a central storage area for
accumulation of less than 90 days.  DRMO takes custody of the hazardous
materials and hazardous waste in accordance with DoD 4160.21-M.  If the DRMO
does not have a permitted facility, the installation retains physical custody of
waste while DRMO takes "paper" custody and begins to arrange for disposal.  Disposal.  Hazardous waste and hazardous materials that
cannot be treated or recycled onsite are sent to DRMO in accordance with DoD
4160.21-M.  Hazardous materials and hazardous waste that cannot be reused or
sold by DRMS are disposed of by service contract.  DRMS employs contractors to
provide a disposal service, which includes transportation and ultimate disposal.
It may also include packaging and testing if required.  DRMO services through
the DRMO contract provide timely removals, discounted prices based on volume,
and balanced interest for small generators in remote locations equal to large
generators located on main transportation routes. DRMS surveillance of
contractor performance reduces the liability for DoD.
Treatment Alternatives.  Hazardous wastes generated at the
installation's industrial facilities are treated either onsite or offsite.
Typical hazardous wastes subjected to treatment are solvents, plating wastes,
aircraft paint stripping wastes, and acids.  Used petroleum products may or may
not be considered hazardous depending on the nature of their contaminants.  DoD
established the Used Solvent Elimination Program and the Hazardous Waste
Minimization Program to provide direction and guidance in reducing hazardous
wastes generation.
