Waste Description
Waste Management Disposal Systems of Pennsylvania, Inc. 100 New Ford Mill Road,
Morrisville, PA 19067
Wastewater treatment sludge filter cake from the treatment of EPA Hazardous Waste No. F039, generated at a maximum annual rate of 4,000 cubic yards, after September 11, 2010, and disposed in an RCRA Subtitle D landfill. The exclusion covers the filter cake resulting from the treatment of hazardous waste leachate derived from only the ‘‘old’’ Geological Reclamation Operations and Waste Systems, Inc. (GROWS) landfill and nonhazardous leachate derived from only nonhazardous waste sources. The exclusion does not address the waste disposed in the ‘‘old’’ GROWS landfill or the grit generated during the removal of heavy solids from the landfill leachate. To ensure that hazardous constituents are not present in the filter cake at levels of regulatory concern, WMDSPA must implement a testing program for the petitioned waste. This testing program must meet the conditions listed below in order for the exclusion to be valid:
 (1)  Testing: Sample collection and analyses, including quality control (QC) procedures, must be performed using appropriate methods. As applicable to the method-defined parameters of concern, analyses requiring the use of SW-846 methods incorporated by reference in 40 CFR 260.11 must be used without substitution. As applicable, the SW-846 methods might include Methods 0010, 0011, 0020, 0023A, 0030, 0031, 0040, 0050, 0051, 0060, 0061, 1010A, 1020B, 1110A, 1310B, 1311, 1312, 1320, 1330A, 9010C, 9012B, 9040C, 9045D, 9060A, 9070A (uses EPA Method 1664, Rev. A), 9071B, and 9095B.
 (i)  Sample Collection: Each batch of waste generated over a 4-week period must be collected in containers with a maximum capacity of 20 cubic yards. At the end of the 4-week period, each container must be divided into four quadrants and a single, full-depth core sample shall be collected from each quadrant. All of the full-depth core samples then must be composited under laboratory conditions to produce one representative composite sample for the 4-week period.
 (ii)  Sample Analysis: Each 4-week composite sample must be analyzed for all of the constituents listed in Condition (3). The analytical data, including quality control information, must be submitted to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Waste Management, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 14th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17105. Data from the annual verification testing must be compiled and submitted to the Department within 60 days from the end of the calendar year. All data must be accompanied by a signed copy of the statement set forth in 40 CFR 260.22(i)(12) to certify to the truth and accuracy of the data submitted. Records of operating conditions and analytical data must be compiled, summarized, and maintained on-site for a minimum of 3 years and must be furnished upon request by any employee or representative of the Department, and made available for inspection.
 (2)  Waste Holding: The dewatered filter cake must be stored as hazardous until the verification analyses are completed. If the 4-week composite sample does not exceed any of the delisting levels set forth in Condition (3), the filter cake waste corresponding to this sample may be managed and disposed in accordance with all applicable solid waste regulations. If the 4-week composite sample exceeds any of the delisting levels set forth in Condition (3), the filter cake waste generated during the time period corresponding to the 4-week composite sample must be retreated until it meets these levels (analyses must be repeated) or managed and disposed in accordance with Subtitle C of RCRA. Filter cake which is generated but for which analyses are not complete or valid must be managed and disposed in accordance with Subtitle C of RCRA, until valid analyses demonstrate that the waste meets the delisting levels.
 (3)  Delisting Levels: If the concentrations in the 4-week composite sample of the filter cake waste for any of the hazardous constituents listed below exceed their respective maximum allowable concentrations (mg/l or mg/kg) also listed below, the 4-week batch of failing filter cake waste must either be retreated until it meets these levels or managed and disposed in accordance with Subtitle C of RCRA. WMDSPA has the option of determining whether the filter cake waste exceeds the maximum allowable concentrations for the organic constituents by either performing the analysis on a TCLP leachate of the waste or performing total constituent analysis on the waste, and then comparing the results to the corresponding maximum allowable concentration level.

 (4)  Changes in Operating Conditions: If WMDSPA significantly changes the treatment process or the chemicals used in the treatment process, WMDSPA may not manage the treatment sludge filter cake generated from the new process under this exclusion until it has met the following conditions: (a) WMDSPA must demonstrate that the waste meets the delisting levels set forth in Condition (3); (b) it must demonstrate that no new hazardous constituents listed in Appendix VIII of 40 CFR Part 261 have been introduced into the manufacturing or treatment process; and (c) it must obtain prior written approval from the Department to manage the waste under this exclusion.
 (5)  Reopener:
 (i) If WMDSPA discovers that a condition at the facility or an assumption related to the disposal of the excluded waste that was modeled or predicted in the petition does not occur as modeled or predicted, then WMDSPA must report any information relevant to that condition, in writing, to the Department within 10 days of discovering that condition.
 (ii) Upon receiving information described in subparagraph (i) of this Condition, regardless of its source, the Department will determine whether the reported condition requires further action. Further action may include repealing the exclusion, modifying the exclusion, or other appropriate response necessary to protect human health and the environment.

Table 2a. Wastes Excluded from Specific Sources

Facility
Address
Waste Description
Max Environmental Technologies, Inc. 233 Max Lane
Yukon, PA 15698
Electric arc furnace dust (EAFD) that has been treated on site by MAX Environmental Technologies, Inc. (MAX) at a maximum annual rate of 300,000 cubic yards per year and disposed of in a Permitted Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Subtitle D/ Pennsylvania Class 1 residual waste landfill that has groundwater monitoring.
(1) Delisting Levels:
(i) The constituent concentrations measured in either of the extracts specified in paragraph (2) may not exceed the following levels (mg/L): Antimony-0.206; Arsenic-0.0094; Barium-21; Beryllium-0.416; Cadmium-0.11; Chromium-0.60; Lead-0.75; Mercury-0.025; Nickel-11.0; Selenium-0.58; Silver-0.14; Thallium-0.088; Vanadium-21.1; Zinc-4.3.
(ii) Total mercury may not exceed 1 mg/kg.
(2) Verification Testing:
(i) On a batch basis, MAX must analyze a representative sample of the waste using the following:
(A) The Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) , test Method 1311 in ‘‘Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste. Physical/Chemical Methods.’’ EPA publication SW-846, as incorporated by reference in 40 CFR 260.11.
(B) The TCLP as referenced above with an extraction fluid of pH 12 ±0.05 standard units.
(C) SW-846 Method 7470 for mercury.
(ii) The constituent concentrations measured must be less than the delisting levels established in paragraph (1).
(3) Changes in Operating Conditions:
(i) If any of the approved EAFD generators significantly changes the manufacturing process or chemicals used in the manufacturing process or MAX significantly changes the treatment process or the type of chemicals used in the treatment process, MAX must notify the Department of the changes in writing.
(ii) MAX must handle wastes generated after the process change as hazardous until MAX has demonstrated that the wastes continue to meet the delisting levels set forth in paragraph (1) and that no new hazardous constituents listed in Appendix VIII of Part 261 have been introduced and MAX has received written approval from the Department.
(4) Data Submittals:
(i) MAX must submit the data obtained through routine batch verification testing, as required by other conditions of this rule or conditions of the permit, to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Southwest Region, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222.
(ii) The data from the initial full scale batch treatments following permit modification and construction of the treatment unit shall be submitted to the Department as it becomes available and prior to disposal of those batches.
(iii) The data submission frequency can be modified by the Department upon demonstration that the treatment method is effective.
(iv) All data must be accompanied by a signed copy of the certification statement in 40 CFR 260.22(i)(12).
(v) MAX must compile, summarize, and maintain on site for a minimum of 5 years records of operating conditions and analytical data. MAX must make these records available for inspection.
(5) Reopener Language:
(i) If, at any time after disposal of the delisted waste, MAX possesses or is otherwise made aware of any data for any of the approved disposal facilities (including but not limited to leachate data or groundwater monitoring data) relevant to the delisted waste indicating that any constituent identified in paragraph (1) is at a level in the leachate higher than the delisting level established in paragraph (1), or is at a level in the groundwater higher than the specific facility action levels, then MAX or the disposal facility must report such data, in writing, to the Regional Director of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Southwest Region within 10 days of first possessing or being made aware of that data.
(ii) Based on the information described in subparagraph (i) and any other information received from any source, the Regional Director will make a preliminary determination as to whether the reported information requires Department action to protect human health or the environment. Further action may include suspending or revoking the exclusion or other appropriate response necessary to protect human health and the environment.
(iii) If the Regional Director determines that the reported information does require Department action, the Regional Director will notify MAX in writing of the actions the Regional Director believes are necessary to protect human health and the environment. The notice shall include a statement of the proposed action and a statement providing MAX and/or the approved disposal facility with an opportunity to present information as to why the proposed Department action is not necessary or to suggest an alternative action. MAX and/or the approved disposal facility shall have 30 days from the date of the Regional Director’s notice to present the information.
(iv) If after 30 days MAX and/or the approved disposal facility presents no further information, the Regional Director will issue a final written determination describing the Department actions that are necessary to protect human health or the environment. Any required action described in the Regional Director’s determination shall become effective immediately, unless the Regional Director provides otherwise.
