Exhibit 3.1 Continued
ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS UNLESS SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TO SKIP A QUESTION
If there are any doubts about verification of conformance with an indicator, inspector should discuss it with state project lead.
NOTE: ALL QUESTIONS APPLY TO RCRA HAZARDOUS WASTE ONLY. THEY DO NOTAPPLY TO “UNIVERSAL WASTES” SUCH AS COMPUTERS OR FLOURESCENT BULBS OR TO STATE- ONLY WASTES
Container Management Indicators
Note: Container management questions apply to central accumulation areas only. They do not apply to satellite areas or laboratories
Are all hazardous waste containers properly labeled with the words “hazardous waste” and clearly marked with the date on which accumulation began?
Inspector will determine if facility has made a “complete and genuine effort” to ensure that all containers have labels, are marked with both items and are clear and legible
Note: inspector will use best professional judgment to determine what is “clear” and “legible” and whether the facility has made a “complete and genuine effort”
Are all hazardous waste containers closed unless waste is being added or removed? Inspector will confirm that all containers are closed at the time of
inspection unless waste is being added or removed.
Note: ”closed” means if the containers were tipped, nothing would spill. “Funnels” are acceptable as long as they are closed.
Are all hazardous waste containers in good condition, (i.e., free of severe rusting or apparent structural defects, and not leaking
Inspector will perform visual inspection of conditions of all containers looking for leaks and/or severe corrosion, bulging, rusting or dents.
Note: inspector will use best professional judgment to determine what is “severe. should be no imminent threat.
Proper Hazardous Waste Management Indicators
At the time of the inspection has the facility accumulated more than kg of RCRA hazardous waste onsite?
*NOTE: Fill in the state’s accumulation limit applicable to facilities that generate between 100 and 1000 kg of RCRA Hazardous Waste per month
Inspector will inventory all containers and tanks accumulating hazardous waste, noting their volumes and contents. A review of manifests may provide information on the weights of different hazardous waste streams so the total weight accumulated can be calculated.
