The module addresses the statutory and regulatory definitions of solid waste, including the standards governing the recycling and management of specific types of waste. It explains the use of the table in 261.2 and the preamble to the January 4, 1985 Federal Register (50 DR 614). It lists and cites three use/reuse scenarios where the materials are not solid wastes and states the requirements for documentation. It lists examples of sham recycling, and describes the conditions under which hazardous waste-derived products may be excluded from regulation. It cites the provisions for prescious metals recovery and discusses potential regulatory developments affecting the definition of solid waste and hazardous waste recycling.
