manufacturing, petroleum refining, iron and steel production, primary aluminum production, secondary lead processing, veterinary pharmaceuticals manufacturing, ink formulation, and coking (PegEx Inc., 2019). There are 148 wastes in all on the K-List, which can be found under 40 CFR 261.32.The P-and-U-Lists control unused pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and pesticides.The P-List encompasses approximately 239 acutely toxic substances, which fall under 135 waste codes due to each code may cover more than one substance. Not all of the P-list substances are toxic, unlike the wastes in the U-List, which are all toxic. The full list of wastes found on both the P-List and U-List can be found under 40 CFR 261.33.Manifest System
UNIT V ESSAY 4The manifest system, better known as cradle-to-grave, was designed by RCRA to track ormonitor the transportation journey of HW from its point of origin to the final disposal site. The system electronically tracks HW and serves as a national reporting hub and database for all HW manifests and shipment data (Professional Safety, 2018). The manifest or document records the path traveled by the waste generated and is prepared by the originator. This identified that the generator is primarily responsible for managing waste. They are also responsible for ensuring thewaste transporter is licensed and receives the waste identified along with the manifest. The carrier is liable for DOT and EPA compliance in regards to transport vehicle standards, operation,and response to accidental spills. The manifest is delivered to the authorized off-site storage, processing, or disposal facility by the transporter (Professional Safety, 2018). At each exchange along the way, the manifest must be signed copies kept by each party involved as well as sent to the appropriate state agency. This process is designed to curtailing improper or midnight dumping as well as to provide data concerning sources, types, and quantities of HW being moved. This helps with ensuring proper handling, storing, and disposal of the waste to ensure thesafety of all parties involved. It aids first responders by providing information regarding recommended emergency response procedures in the event of an accidental spill, leak, or fire. Fairchild AFB’s Treatment, Storage, and Disposal FacilitiesFairchild AFB complies with the Washington Military Department’s (WMD) dangerous waste (DW) management program. This program recommends policies and procedures for the proper accumulation and handling of dangerous wastes. This provides the EPA with “cradle to grave” authority to control HW from generation to final disposal. RCRA regulates five kinds of HW management activities: generation, storage, transportation, treatment, and disposal. Following Title 40 CFR, the Protection of the environment includes the federal regulations
UNIT V ESSAY 5applicable to all aspects of managing HW under the provisions of RCRA. The base collects waste in containers on-site before shipping to a Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facility
