Any person seeking to exclude a waste at a particular generating facility from the lists in subch. D of ch. NR 661 may petition the EPA region 5 administrator for a regulatory amendment under 40 CFR 260.20 and 260.22. The department shall recognize an EPA granted delisting unless the department clearly establishes that a delisting would threaten human health or the environment.
NR 660.22 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.

The petition shall include the information required by this section. The petition should also address as many of the factors listed in s. NR 673.81 as are appropriate for the waste or category of waste addressed in the petition.
NR 660.23(3) (3) The department shall grant or deny a petition using the factors listed in s. NR 673.81. The decision will be based on the weight of evidence showing that regulation under ch.

NR 660.23(4) (4) The department may request additional information needed to evaluate the merits of the petition.
NR 660.23 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.
NR 660.30 NR 660.30Variances from classification as a solid waste. According to the standards and criteria in s. NR 660.31 and the procedures in s. NR 660.33, the department may determine on a case-by-case basis that all of the following recycled materials are not solid wastes:
NR 660.30(1) (1) Materials that are accumulated speculatively without sufficient amounts being recycled (as defined in s. NR 661.01 (3) (h)).
NR 660.30(2) (2) Materials that are reclaimed and then reused within the original production process in which they were generated.
NR 660.30(3) (3) Materials that have been reclaimed but shall be reclaimed further before the materials are completely recovered.
NR 660.30 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.
NR 660.31 NR 660.31Standards and criteria for variances from classification as a solid waste.
NR 660.31(1) (1) The department may grant requests for a variance from classifying as a solid waste those materials that are accumulated speculatively without sufficient amounts being recycled if the applicant demonstrates that sufficient amounts of the material will be recycled or transferred for recycling in the following year. If a variance is granted, it is valid only for the following year, but can be renewed, on an annual basis, by filing a new application. The department's decision will be based on all of the following criteria:
NR 660.31(1)(a) (a) The manner in which the material is expected to be recycled, when the material is expected to be recycled, and whether this expected disposition is likely to occur (for example, because of past practice, market factors, the nature of the material or contractual arrangements for recycling).
NR 660.31(1)(b) (b) The reason that the applicant has accumulated the material for one or more years without recycling 75% of the volume accumulated at the beginning of the year.
NR 660.31(1)(c) (c) The quantity of material already accumulated and the quantity expected to be generated and accumulated before the material is recycled.
NR 660.31(1)(d) (d) The extent to which the material is handled to minimize loss.
NR 660.31(1)(e) (e) Other relevant factors.
NR 660.31(2) (2) The department may grant requests for a variance from classifying as a solid waste those materials that are reclaimed and then reused as feedstock within the original production process in which the materials were generated if the reclamation operation is an essential part of the production process. This determination will be based on all of the following criteria:
NR 660.31(2)(a) (a) How economically viable the production process would be if it were to use virgin materials, rather than reclaimed materials.
NR 660.31(2)(b) (b) The extent to which the material is handled before reclamation to minimize loss.
NR 660.31(2)(c) (c) The time periods between generating the material and its reclamation, and between reclamation and return to the original primary production process.
NR 660.31(2)(d) (d) The location of the reclamation operation in relation to the production process.
NR 660.31(2)(e) (e) Whether the reclaimed material is used for the purpose for which it was originally produced when it is returned to the original process, and whether it is returned to the process in substantially its original form.
NR 660.31(2)(f) (f) Whether the person who generates the material also reclaims it.
NR 660.31(2)(g) (g) Other relevant factors.
NR 660.31(3) (3) The department may grant requests for a variance from classifying as a solid waste those materials that have been reclaimed but shall be reclaimed further before recovery is completed if, after initial reclamation, the resulting material is commodity-like (even though it is not yet a commercial product, and has to be reclaimed further). This determination will be based on all of the following factors:
NR 660.31(3)(a) (a) The degree of processing the material has undergone and the degree of further processing that is required.
NR 660.31(3)(b) (b) The value of the material after it has been reclaimed.
NR 660.31(3)(c) (c) The degree to which the reclaimed material is like an analogous raw material.
NR 660.31(3)(d) (d) The extent to which an end market for the reclaimed material is guaranteed.
NR 660.31(3)(e) (e) The extent to which the reclaimed material is handled to minimize loss.
NR 660.31(3)(f) (f) Other relevant factors.
NR 660.31 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06; CR 16-007: r. (2) (b), renum. (2) (c) to (h) to (2) (b) to (g) Register July 2017 No. 739, eff. 8-1-17.
NR 660.32 NR 660.32Variances to be classified as a boiler. According to the standards and criteria in s. NR 660.10 (definition of “boiler"), and the procedures in s. NR 660.33, the department may determine on a case-by-case basis that certain enclosed devices using controlled flame combustion are boilers, even though they do not otherwise meet the definition of boiler contained in s. NR 660.10, after considering all of the following criteria:
NR 660.32(1) (1) The extent to which the unit has provisions for recovering and exporting thermal energy in the form of steam, heated fluids or heated gases.
NR 660.32(2) (2) The extent to which the combustion chamber and energy recovery equipment are of integral design.
NR 660.32(3) (3) The efficiency of energy recovery, calculated in terms of the recovered energy compared with the thermal value of the fuel.
NR 660.32(4) (4) The extent to which exported energy is utilized.
NR 660.32(5) (5) The extent to which the device is in common and customary use as a “boiler" functioning primarily to produce steam, heated fluids or heated gases.
NR 660.32(6) (6) Other factors, as appropriate.
NR 660.32 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.
NR 660.33 NR 660.33Procedures for variances from classification as a solid waste or to be classified as a boiler. The department will use all of the following procedures in evaluating applications for variances from classification as a solid waste or applications to classify particular enclosed controlled flame combustion devices as boilers:
NR 660.33(1) (1) The applicant shall apply to the department for the variance. The application shall address the relevant criteria contained in s. NR 660.31 or 660.32.
NR 660.33(2) (2) The department will evaluate the application and issue a draft notice tentatively granting or denying the application. Notification of this tentative decision will be provided by newspaper advertisement or radio broadcast in the locality where the recycler is located. The department will accept comment on the tentative decision for 30 days, and may also hold a public hearing upon request or at the department's discretion. The department will issue a final decision after receipt of comments and after the hearing (if any).
NR 660.33 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.
