Azo products include azo, monoazo, diazo, triazo, polyazo, azoic, benzidine, and pyrazolone products. Triarylmethane products include both triarylmethane and triphenylmethane products. Wastes that are not generated at a dyes or pigments manufacturing site, such as wastes from the offsite use, formulation, and packaging of dyes or pigments, are not included in the K181 listing.
NR 661.32(3) (3)K181 listing levels. Nonwastewaters containing constituents in amounts equal to or exceeding the following levels during any calendar year are subject to the K181 listing, unless the conditions in the K181 listing are met: - See PDF for table PDF
NR 661.32(4) (4)Procedures for demonstrating that dyes or pigment nonwastewaters are not K181. The procedures described in pars. (a) to (c) and (e) establish when nonwastewaters from the production of dyes and pigments would not be hazardous. These procedures apply to wastes that are not disposed in landfill units or treated in combustion units as specified in sub. (1). If the nonwastewaters are disposed in landfill units or treated in combustion units as described in sub. (1), then the nonwastewaters are not hazardous. In order to demonstrate that it is meeting the landfill disposal or combustion conditions contained in the K181 listing description, the generator shall maintain documentation as described in par. (d).
NR 661.32(4)(a) (a) Determination based on no K181constituents. Generators that have knowledge (for example, knowledge of constituents in wastes based on prior sampling and analysis data or information about raw materials used, production processes used, and reaction and degradation products formed) that their wastes contain none of the K181 constituents listed in sub. (3) can use their knowledge to determine that their waste is not K181. The generator shall document the basis for all K181 waste determinations on an annual basis and keep each annual documentation for three years.
NR 661.32(4)(b) (b) Determination for generated quantities of 1,000 metric tons per year or less for wastes that contain K181 constituents. If the total annual quantity of dyes or pigment nonwastewaters generated is 1,000 metric tons or less, the generator may use knowledge of the wastes (for example, knowledge of constituents in wastes based on prior analytical data or information about raw materials used, production processes used, and reaction and degradation products formed) to conclude that annual mass loadings for the K181 constituents are below the listing levels of sub. (3). To make this determination, the generator shall do all of the following:
NR 661.32(4)(b)1. 1. Each year document the basis for determining that the annual quantity of nonwastewaters expected to be generated will be less than 1,000 metric tons.
NR 661.32(4)(b)2. 2. Track the actual quantity of nonwastewaters generated from January 1 through December 31 of each year. If, at any time within the year, the actual waste quantity exceeds 1,000 metric tons, the generator shall comply with the requirements of par. (c) for the remainder of the year.
NR 661.32(4)(b)3. 3. Keep a running total of the K181 constituent mass loadings over the course of the calendar year.
NR 661.32(4)(b)4. 4. Keep all of the following records on site for the three most recent calendar years in which the hazardous waste determinations are made:

NR 661.32(4)(b)4.b. b. The relevant process information used.
NR 661.32(4)(b)4.c. c. The calculations performed to determine annual total mass loadings for each K181 constituent in the nonwastewaters during the year.
NR 661.32(4)(c) (c) Determination for generated quantities greater than 1,000 metric tons per year for wastes that contain K181 constituents. If the total annual quantity of dyes or pigment nonwastewaters generated is greater than 1,000 metric tons, the generator shall perform all of the steps described in subds. 1. to 11. in order to make a determination that its waste is not K181.
NR 661.32(4)(c)1. 1. Determine which K181 constituents listed in sub. (3) are reasonably expected to be present in the wastes based on knowledge of the wastes (for example, based on prior sampling and analysis data or information about raw materials used, production processes used, and reaction and degradation products formed).
NR 661.32(4)(c)2. 2. If 1,2-phenylenediamine is present in the wastes, the generator may use either knowledge or sampling and analysis procedures to determine the level of this constituent in the wastes. For determinations based on use of knowledge, the generator shall comply with the procedures for using knowledge described in par. (b) and keep the records described in par. (b) 4. For determinations based on sampling and analysis, the generator shall comply with the sampling and analysis and recordkeeping requirements described below.
NR 661.32(4)(c)3. 3. Develop a waste sampling and analysis plan (or modify an existing plan) to collect and analyze representative waste samples for the K181 constituents reasonably expected to be present in the wastes. At a minimum, the plan shall include all of the following:

NR 661.32(4)(c)4. 4. Collect and analyze samples in accordance with the waste sampling and analysis plan.
NR 661.32(4)(c)4.a. a. The sampling and analysis shall be unbiased, precise, and representative of the wastes.
NR 661.32(4)(c)4.b. b. The analytical measurements shall be sufficiently sensitive, accurate, and precise to support any claim that the constituent mass loadings are below the listing levels of sub. (3).
NR 661.32(4)(c)5. 5. Record the analytical results.
NR 661.32(4)(c)6. 6. Record the waste quantity represented by the sampling and analysis results.
NR 661.32(4)(c)7. 7. Calculate constituent-specific mass loadings (product of concentrations and waste quantity).
NR 661.32(4)(c)8. 8. Keep a running total of the K181 constituent mass loadings over the course of the calendar year.
NR 661.32(4)(c)9. 9. Determine whether the mass of any of the K181 constituents listed in sub. (3) generated between January 1 and December 31 of any year is below the K181 listing levels.
NR 661.32(4)(c)10. 10. Keep all of the following records on site for the three most recent calendar years in which the hazardous waste determinations are made:
NR 661.32(4)(c)10.a. a. The sampling and analysis plan.
NR 661.32(4)(c)10.b. b. The sampling and analysis results (including QA/QC data).
NR 661.32(4)(c)10.c. c. The quantity of dyes or pigment nonwastewaters generated.
NR 661.32(4)(c)10.d. d. The calculations performed to determine annual mass loadings.
NR 661.32(4)(c)11. 11. Nonhazardous waste determinations shall be conducted annually to verify that the wastes remain nonhazardous.
NR 661.32(4)(c)11.a. a. The annual testing requirements are suspended after three consecutive successful annual demonstrations that the wastes are nonhazardous. The generator can then use knowledge of the wastes to support subsequent annual determinations.
NR 661.32(4)(c)11.b. b. The annual testing requirements are reinstated if the manufacturing or the waste treatment processes are significantly altered, resulting in an increase of the potential for the wastes to exceed the listing levels.
NR 661.32(4)(c)11.c. c. If the annual testing requirements are suspended, the generator shall keep records of the process knowledge information used to support a nonhazardous determination. If testing is reinstated, a description of the process change shall be retained.
NR 661.32(4)(d) (d) Recordkeeping for the landfill disposal and combustion exemptions. For the purposes of meeting the landfill disposal and combustion condition set out in the K181 listing description, the generator shall maintain on site for three years documentation demonstrating that each shipment of waste was received by a landfill unit that is subject to or meets the landfill design standards set out in the listing description, or was treated in combustion units as specified in the listing description.
NR 661.32(4)(e) (e) Waste holding and handling. During the interim period, from the point of generation to completion of the hazardous waste determination, the generator is responsible for storing the wastes appropriately. If the wastes are determined to be hazardous and the generator has not complied with the hazardous waste requirements during the interim period, the generator may be subject to an enforcement action for improper management.

NR 661.33 NR 661.33Discarded commercial chemical products, off-specification species, container residues and spill residues thereof. All of the following materials or items are hazardous wastes if and when they are discarded or intended to be discarded as described in s. NR 661.02 (1) (b) 1., when they are mixed with waste oil or used oil or other material and applied to the land for dust suppression or road treatment, when they are otherwise applied to the land in lieu of their original intended use or when they are contained in products that are applied to the land in lieu of their original intended use, or when, in lieu of their original intended use, they are produced for use as (or as a component of) a fuel, distributed for use as a fuel or burned as a fuel:
NR 661.33(1) (1) Any commercial chemical product, or manufacturing chemical intermediate having the generic name listed in sub. (5) or (6).
NR 661.33(2) (2) Any off-specification commercial chemical product or manufacturing chemical intermediate which, if it met specifications, would have the generic name listed in sub. (5) or (6).
NR 661.33(3) (3) Any residue remaining in a container or in an inner liner removed from a container that has held any commercial chemical product or manufacturing chemical intermediate having the generic name listed in sub. (5) or (6), unless the container is empty as defined in s. NR 661.07 (2).
NR 661.33 Note Note: Unless the residue is being beneficially used or reused, or legitimately recycled or reclaimed; or being accumulated, stored, transported or treated prior to its use, re-use, recycling or reclamation, the department considers the residue to be intended for discard, and thus, a hazardous waste. An example of a legitimate re-use of the residue would be where the residue remains in the container and the container is used to hold the same commercial chemical product or manufacturing chemical intermediate it previously held. An example of the discard of the residue would be where the drum is sent to a drum reconditioner who reconditions the drum but discards the residue.
NR 661.33(4) (4) Any residue or contaminated soil, water or other debris resulting from the cleanup of a spill into or on any land or water of any commercial chemical product or manufacturing chemical intermediate having the generic name listed in sub. (5) or (6), or any residue or contaminated soil, water or other debris resulting from the cleanup of a spill, into or on any land or water, of any off-specification chemical product and manufacturing chemical intermediate which, if it met specifications, would have the generic name listed in sub. (5) or (6).
NR 661.33 Note Note: The phrase “commercial chemical product or manufacturing chemical intermediate having the generic name listed in " refers to a chemical substance which is manufactured or formulated for commercial or manufacturing use which consists of the commercially pure grade of the chemical, any technical grades of the chemical that are produced or marketed and all formulations in which the chemical is the sole active ingredient. It does not refer to a material, such as a manufacturing process waste, that contains any of the substances listed in sub. (5) or (6). Where a manufacturing process waste is deemed to be a hazardous waste because it contains a substance listed in sub. (5) or (6), the waste will be listed in either s.
