Frequent Questions

I would like to determine what US disposal facilities can accept tin waste. Where can I find a list of Part B permit facilities?

A waste cannot be hazardous simply because it contains tin.  There is no characteristic for tin and tin is not a hazardous constituent.  A list of the various types of solid waste landfills can be found at 
http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/nonhaz/municipal/index.htm.  

A comprehensive list of solid waste landfills and Part B permit facilities can be found on the Envirofacts RCRA Info web site.
