prescribed by the EPA and are applicable to permitted facilities under Part 264 and interim
permitted facilities under part 265:
a. Each container will comply with the requirements of Title 40 CFR, part 262, subpart C,
and be clearly labeled with the words "Hazardous Waste" and with the date the installation began
to collect waste in that container.
b. Containers must be kept in good condition, compatible with waste, handled carefully, and
leaking ones must be replaced immediately in accordance with Title 40 CFR, part 264.171 and
265.171, as appropriate.
c. Hazardous waste will not be stored in a container if it may cause rupture, leaks, corrosion,
or other failure in accordance with Title 40 CFR, part 264.171 and 265.171, as appropriate.
d. Containers will be kept closed except when being filled or emptied in accordance with
Title 40 CFR, part 264.173 and 265.173, as appropriate.
e. Containers will be inspected weekly for leaks or corrosion in accordance with Title 40
CFR, part 264.174 and 265.174, as appropriate.
f. To create a buffer zone when storing ignitable or reactive wastes, containers will be placed
as far as practicable inside the installation property lines, but at least 50 feet away in accordance
with Title 40 CFR, part 264.176 and 265.176, as appropriate.
g. Wastes that could react together to cause fire, leaks, or other releases must not be placed
in the same container in accordance with Title 40 CFR, part 264.177 and 265.177, as appropriate.
Also, incompatible wastes must be separated from one another to prevent the possibility of
accidental mixing that could result in a reaction.
h. Generators may accumulate hazardous wastes on-site for 90 days for large quantity
generators and 180 days for small quantity generators (270 days if the waste is transported 200
miles or more) provided certain provisions are met as specified in Title 40 CFR, part 262.34.
i. Permitted facilities must have a secondary containment system for hazardous wastes as
specified in Title 40 CFR, part 264.175.
j. The date upon which each period of accumulation begins must be clearly marked and
visible for inspection on each container in accordance with Title 40 CFR, part 262, subpart C.
k. Examples of potentially incompatible wastes are contained in Title 40 CFR, parts 264 and
265, appendix V.
l. A determination as to the applicability of Title 40, part 264 or 265 (as appropriate), parts
1080-1091, Organic Air Emission Standards for Tanks, Surface Impoundments, and Containers
should be made.
