Solvent-Contaminated Wipes: Best Practices for Determining Exemption Eligibility and Meeting Regulatory Requirements - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

A large number of industrial facilities use non-laundered wipes, rags, and laundered shop towels with solvents for cleaning their equipment. These non-laundered wipes long have been identified as hazardous under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). As a result, they have been subject to stringent and expensive management requirements.

Federal regulators, meanwhile, have generally not regarded laundered shop towels contaminated with the same solvents as waste, since they are reused. The result is a hard to interpret regulatory environment for wipes users and companies understandably may be unsure as to how to properly manage these solvent-contaminated wipes.

Additionally, extensive studies have concluded that solvent-contaminated wipes do not pose significant environmental issues when they are properly laundered or landfilled. Because of this, the EPA now provides a solid waste exemption for solvent-contaminated wipes being laundered and a hazardous waste exemption for disposable solvent-contaminated wipes.

Use this on-demand webinar for an in-depth discussion of the EPA’s solid waste exemption rule for reusable and disposable solvent-contaminated wipes. Karen D. Hamel, ASP, WACH, EHS Specialist and Technical Writer for New Pig, will discuss the terms of these exemptions and how facilities must manage the wipes as specified in the regulation and comply with applicable recordkeeping requirements. 

You’ll learn how to: 

  • Identify when the solid waste exemption applies to reusable wipes 
  • Evaluate when the hazardous waste exemption applies for disposable wipes 
  • Recognize rule changes and develop new procedures 
  • Handle re-usable and disposable wipes through processing, treatment and disposal 
  • Comply with recordkeeping requirements 

Find out if your company qualifies for any of the EPA exemptions and don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn how to save money and resources by attending this webinar!
