NOTE: Analyses of burn pile ash indicate that the burning of painted wood renders the ash unsuitable for agronomic utilization and may result in ash that is a hazardous waste. Facility owners should limit the amount of painted wood in burn piles to avoid the costs of disposal of a hazardous waste.

(e)Municipal solid waste incinerator ash.

(i)prior to initial acceptance at each solid waste disposal facility, a sufficient number of samples to meet the requirements for statistical analysis as required by US EPA SW-846 must be analyzed as follows:

a.TCLP Metals (Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead, Mercury, Selenium, Silver) per US EPA Method 1311, Federal Register/Volume 55, No. 126;

b.Dioxins and furans per methods in US EPA SW-846; and

c.Chloride, percent carbon, percent moisture, pH, phosphorus.

(ii)after initial characterization is complete, for the next two calendar years each municipal solid waste incinerator ash source must be analyzed for the parameters listed above at a frequency of one representative sample per two hundred (200) tons of ash for the first one thousand (1000) tons, and then one representative sample per one thousand (1000) tons of ash, or one representative sample quarterly, whichever is more frequent.

(iii)if after two years of sampling at the above frequency it can be determined that the characteristics of the incinerator ash are consistent, each municipal solid waste incinerator ash source must be analyzed for the parameters listed above at a frequency of one representative sample per ten thousand (10,000) tons, or one representative sample quarterly, whichever is more frequent, except that dioxins and furans must be analyzed semiannually.

(f)Biomedical incinerator ash.

(i)prior to initial acceptance at each solid waste disposal facility, a sufficient number of samples to meet the requirements for statistical analysis as required by US EPA SW-846 must be analyzed as follows:

a.TCLP Metals (Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead, Mercury, Selenium, Silver) per US EPA Method 1311, Federal Register/Volume 55, No. 126;

b.For beneficial use only, total Aluminum, Arsenic, Barium, Boron, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Lead, Mercury, Molybdenum, Nickel, Selenium, Silver, and Zinc per methods in US EPA SW-846; and

c.Chloride, percent carbon, percent moisture, pH, phosphorus.

(ii)after initial characterization is complete, each biomedical incinerator ash source must be analyzed for the parameters listed above at a frequency of one representative sample per one hundred (100) tons of ash, or one representative sample annually, whichever is more frequent.
