(2) Nonmixable used and waste oils. Category I and III type waste
petroleum, oils, and lubricants (POL), such as used oils, paints, and bulk issue solvents
containing levels of halogenated solvents in excess of 1,000 parts per million (ppm) or
used oil containing between 100 and 1,000 ppm halogenated solvents as a result of
other than normal operations, must be managed and disposed of as a hazardous waste
or burned for energy recovery under 40 CFR-261 and 266.
(3) Mixable POL waste. Waste oil and Category II type waste oils (hydraulic
and purging fluids, lubricating fluids, and synthetic oils) having halogenated solvents
below 1,000 ppm may be blended or mixed with other Class II waste for storage prior to
burning for energy recovery IAW 40 CFR 266, Subpart B.
(4) Spillage. Any spillage must be contained and every effort must be taken
to prevent the spill from reaching lakes or streams. In the case of hazardous (all fuels,
waste POL, and other materials) and infectious wastes, drugs, etc., you must notify
proper authorities IAW SOP. Spills over 50 gallons that are contained to land areas
must be reported. Sandbags or other type articles may be used to contain spillage until
it can be cleaned up.
1-5. THE ESSENTIAL OF REFUSE COLLECTION
The collection and disposal of refuse is one of the major problems in sanitation
for all organizations, fixed installations, and field units. Refuse handling must be
approached and analyzed in terms of sound administrative engineering management
and must receive the same (if not more) consideration as does other sanitary facilities.
In a fixed installation, the essentials of a properly operated solid waste program are:
b. Segregation of refuse.
c. Refuse collection.
(3) Pickup stations.
f. Operating records.
