The Part 279 management standards apply to used oil until a facility disposes of the used oil or sends it for disposal. Used oil that is a listed hazardous waste or that exhibits a characteristic of hazardous waste must be managed as a hazardous waste under the RCRA Subtitle C program when it is disposed or sent for disposal. Conversely, used oil that is not hazardous must be managed as a solid waste under the RCRA Subtitle D program if disposed or sent for disposal (57 FR 41566, 41578; September 10, 1992).
Do the management standards in 40 CFR Part 279 apply to facilities that are sending used oil for disposal?
