Section 3004(c)(3) of HSWA restricts the placement of nonhazardous liquids in hazardous waste (Subtitle C) landfills. Owners and operators of landfills regulated under Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act are not subject to the prohibition when the following situations occur: (1) the nonhazardous liquids are absorbed and the material passes the Paint Filter Liquids Test prior to placement in the hazardous waste landfill, or (2) the nonhazardous liquids are used in the hazardous waste landfill to meet other regulatory or safety requirements. The guidance provides information about those situations that are not subject to the prohibition, and describes information that should be submitted to EPA by the owner/operator as part of the demonstration under $3004(c)(3) to qualify for an exemption from the prohibition. In addition, the guidance describes procedures for processing exemption requests, and the appendices provide reference material for assisting owners/operators in selecting alternative treatment methods, and in making other relevant determinations.
