Fact Sheet About the Conditional Exemption from Hazardous Waste Regulation for Low-Level Mixed Waste

This fact sheet explains that EPA is providing increased flexibility to facilities for managing low-level mixed waste and naturally occurring and/or accelerator-produced radioactive material containing hazardous waste. The Agency is exempting low-level mixed waste from Resource Conservation and Recovery Act storage and treatment requirements as long as the waste is generated under a single Nuclear Regulatory Commission license, meets the conditions specified, and is stored and treated in a tank or container.
