Special waste is a subset category of non-RCRA hazardous wastes. Wastes that qualify for a special waste are typically generated in larger volumes and pose less hazards. A special waste classification is not an automatic determination and a generator must apply to DTSC to request a special waste classification. Special wastes are eligible to be managed to less stringent standards, but the management is subject to other agency’s approval and not automatic.
The Director received a frantic call from a concerned citizen (his neighbor) about Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate. The neighbor says there are 2 drums of the stuff at his rental house, a "present" left over when his renter skipped town without paying the rent. You have been assigned to research Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate and inform the Director about whether this material is regulated by DTSC.
