EPA is amending the regulations for hazardous waste management under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) by adding three wastes generated during the production of the alpha- (or methyl-) chlorinated toluenes, ring-chlorinated toluenes, benzoyl chlorides, and compounds with mixtures of these functional groups, collectively referred to in this document as "chlorinated toluenes," to the list of hazardous wastes from specific sources.
EPA is also amending appendix VII of 40 CFR part 261 to add the constituents for which these wastes are being listed. The effect of this regulation is that these three wastes will be subject to regulation as hazardous wastes.
In addition, EPA is amending regulations promulgated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) that are related to today's waste listings. In particular, EPA is amending CERCLA regulations by designating the listed wastes as CERCLA hazardous substances and establishing the reportable quantities applicable to these wastes.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
