Land Disposal Restrictions: Notice of Intent to Grant a Site-Specific Treatment Variance to Safety-Kleen, Inc., July 26, 2000

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or Agency) announced its intent to grant a site-specific treatment variance from the Land Disposal Restrictions (LDR) treatment standards for approximately 2850 cubic yards of hazardous waste that Safety-Kleen (Deer Park), Inc. is currently storing at its Deer Park, Texas facility. Safety-Kleen requests this one-time variance because the waste cannot be treated to the interim K088 total arsenic standard of 26.1 mg/kg. Furthermore, a portion of the waste cannot meet the 28 mg/kg total dithiocarbamates treatment standard for the waste codes K161, P196, and P205. If we grant this one-time petition, Safety-Kleen may dispose of this waste in its on-site RCRA Subtitle C landfill provided the waste complies with the specified alternative treatment standards described in this notice and all other applicable LDR treatment standards.
