SOLID WASTE PROCESSING AND DISPOSAL
(Rule 1200-01-07-.01, continued)
“Shredding” means a process of reducing the particle size of solid waste through the use of grinding, shredding, chopping, slicing, milling, or rasping machines.
“Sludge” means any solid, semi-solid, or liquid waste generated from a municipal, commercial, industrial wastewater treatment plant, water supply treatment plant, or air pollution control facility, exclusive of the treated effluent from a wastewater treatment plant.
“Solid waste” means garbage, trash, refuse, abandoned material, spent material, byproducts, scrap, ash, sludge, and all discarded material including solid, liquid, semisolid, or contained gaseous material resulting from industrial, commercial, and agricultural operations, and from community activities. Solid waste includes, without limitation, recyclable material when it is discarded or when it is used in a manner constituting disposal. Solid waste does not include solid or dissolved material in domestic sewage, or solid or dissolved materials in irrigation return flows or industrial discharges that are point sources subject to permits under Section 402 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (compiled at 33 U.S.C. Section 1342).
“Solid waste disposal” means the process of permanently or indefinitely placing, confining, compacting, or covering solid waste.
“Solid Waste Landfill (SWLF) Unit” means a discrete area of land or an excavation that receives waste, and that is not a land application unit, surface impoundment, injection well, or waste pile.
“Solid waste processing” means any process that modifies the characteristics or properties of solid waste, including, but not limited to, treatment, incineration, composting, separation, grinding, shredding, and volume reduction; provided, that it does not include the grinding or shredding of landscaping or land clearing wastes or unpainted, unstained, and untreated wood into mulch or other useful products.
“Source reduction” means any action or activity that reduces or eliminates the generation of waste.
“Special Wastes” are solid wastes that are either difficult or dangerous to manage and may include sludges, bulky wastes, pesticide wastes, medical wastes, industrial wastes, hazardous wastes which are not subject to regulations under Department rules 1200-01-11- .03 through 1200-01-11-.07, liquid wastes, friable asbestos wastes, and combustion wastes.
“Stabilized” means that the compost has at least passed through the thermophilic stage, and that biological decomposition of the solid waste has occurred to a sufficient degree that will allow beneficial use.
“Stream” means a watercourse which is not a wet weather conveyance.
“Structural components” means liners, leachate collection systems, final covers, run-on/run- off systems, and any other component used in the construction and operation of the SWLF that is necessary for protection of human health and the environment.
“Surface impoundment” means a facility or part of a facility which is a natural topographic depression, man-made excavation, or diked area formed primarily of earthen materials (although it may be lined with man-made materials), which is designed to hold an accumulation of liquid wastes, or wastes containing free liquids, and which is not an injection well. Examples of surface impoundments are holding, storage, settling and aeration pits, ponds, and lagoons.
