SOLID WASTE PROCESSING AND DISPOSAL
(Rule 1200-01-07-.11, continued)
The Department may decrease or increase the parameters to be analyzed for or the frequency of analysis based on monitoring data, changes in the waste stream or processing, or the potential presence of toxic substances. Sample collection, preservation, and analysis shall assure valid and representative results pursuant to a Department-approved quality assurance plan.
Composite samples shall consist of at least three individual samples of equal volume taken from separate areas along the side of the pile of the compost produced. Each sampling point shall be at a depth of two feet into the pile and four feet from the outside edge of the pile.
Foreign matter content shall be determined by passing a dried, weighed sample of the compost product through a one-quarter inch or six millimeter screen. EPA Method 160.3 shall be used to dry the sample. The material remaining on the screen shall be visually inspected, and the foreign matter that can be clearly identified shall be separated and weighed. The weight of the separated foreign matter divided by the weight of the total sample multiplied by 100 shall be the percent dry weight of the foreign matter content.
The organic matter reduction is determined by measuring the volatile solids content using EPA method 160.4.
