subch. B of ch. NR 679 Subchapter B — Applicability
NR 679.10 NR 679.10Applicability. This section identifies those materials which are regulated as used oil under this chapter. This section also identifies some materials that are not regulated as used oil under this chapter, and indicates whether these materials may be regulated as hazardous waste under chs. NR 660 to 670.
NR 679.10(1) (1)Used oil. The department presumes that used oil is to be recycled unless a used oil handler disposes of used oil, or sends used oil for disposal. Except as provided in s. NR 679.11, this chapter applies to used oil, and to materials identified in this section as being regulated as used oil, whether or not the used oil or material exhibits any hazardous waste characteristics identified in subch. C of ch. NR 661.
NR 679.10(2) (2)Mixtures of used oil and hazardous waste.
NR 679.10(2)(a)(a) Listed hazardous waste.
NR 679.10(2)(a)1.1. Mixtures of used oil and hazardous waste that is listed in subch. D of ch. NR 661 are regulated as hazardous waste under chs. NR 660 to 670, rather than as used oil under this chapter.
NR 679.10(2)(a)2. 2. Used oil containing greater than 1,000 ppm total halogens is presumed to be a hazardous waste because it has been mixed with halogenated hazardous waste listed in subch. D of ch. NR 661. Persons may rebut this presumption by demonstrating that the used oil does not contain hazardous waste (for example, by showing that the used oil does not contain significant concentrations of halogenated hazardous constituents listed in ch. NR 661 Appendix VIII).
NR 679.10(2)(a)2.a. a. The rebuttable presumption does not apply to metalworking oils or fluids containing chlorinated paraffins, if they are processed, through a tolling arrangement as described in s. NR 679.24 (3), to reclaim metalworking oils or fluids. The presumption does apply to metalworking oils or fluids if the oils or fluids are recycled in any other manner, or are disposed.
NR 679.10(2)(a)2.b. b. The rebuttable presumption does not apply to used oils contaminated with chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) removed from refrigeration units where the CFCs are destined for reclamation. The rebuttable presumption does apply to used oils contaminated with CFCs that have been mixed with used oil from sources other than refrigeration units.
NR 679.10(2)(b) (b) Characteristic hazardous waste. Mixtures of used oil and hazardous waste that solely exhibits any hazardous waste characteristics identified in subch. C of ch. NR 661, and mixtures of used oil and hazardous waste that is listed in subch. D of ch. NR 661 solely because it exhibits any hazardous waste characteristics identified in subch. C of ch. NR 661, are regulated as one of the following:
NR 679.10(2)(b)1. 1. Except as provided in subd. 3., hazardous waste under chs. NR 660 to 670 rather than as used oil under this chapter, if the resultant mixture exhibits any hazardous waste characteristics identified in subch. C of ch. NR 661.
NR 679.10(2)(b)2. 2. Except as provided in subd. 3., used oil under this chapter, if the resultant mixture does not exhibit any hazardous waste characteristics identified in subch. C of ch. NR 661.
NR 679.10(2)(b)3. 3. Used oil under this chapter, if the mixture is of used oil and a waste which is hazardous solely because it exhibits the ignitability characteristic (e.g., ignitable-only mineral spirits), or is listed in subch. D of ch. NR 661 solely because it exhibits the ignitability characteristic, if the resultant mixture does not exhibit the ignitability characteristic identified in s. NR 661.21.
NR 679.10(2)(c) (c) Very small quantity generator hazardous waste. Mixtures of used oil and very small quantity generator hazardous waste regulated under s. NR 662.220 are regulated as used oil under this chapter.
NR 679.10(3) (3)Materials containing or otherwise contaminated with used oil.
NR 679.10(3)(a)(a) Except as provided in par. (b), materials containing or otherwise contaminated with used oil from which the used oil has been properly drained or removed to the extent possible such that no visible signs of free-flowing oil remain in or on the material:
NR 679.10(3)(a)1. 1. Are not used oil and thus not subject to this chapter.
NR 679.10(3)(a)2. 2. If applicable are subject to the hazardous waste rules of chs. NR 660 to 670.
NR 679.10(3)(b) (b) Materials containing or otherwise contaminated with used oil that are burned for energy recovery are regulated as used oil under this chapter.
NR 679.10(3)(c) (c) Used oil drained or removed from materials containing or otherwise contaminated with used oil is regulated as used oil under this chapter.
NR 679.10(4) (4)Mixtures of used oil with products.
NR 679.10(4)(a)(a) Except as provided in par. (b), mixtures of used oil and fuels or other fuel products are regulated as used oil under this chapter.
NR 679.10(4)(b) (b) Mixtures of used oil and diesel fuel mixed on-site by the generator of the used oil for use in the generator's own vehicles are not subject to this chapter once the used oil and diesel fuel have been mixed. Prior to mixing, the used oil is subject to subch. C.
NR 679.10(5) (5)Materials derived from used oil.
NR 679.10(5)(a)(a) Materials that are reclaimed from used oil that are used beneficially and are not burned for energy recovery or used in a manner constituting disposal (e.g., re-refined lubricants) are all of the following:
NR 679.10(5)(a)1. 1. Not used oil and thus are not subject to this chapter.
NR 679.10(5)(a)2. 2. Not solid wastes and are thus not subject to the hazardous waste rules of chs. NR 660 to 670 as provided in s. NR 661.03 (3) (b) 1.
NR 679.10(5)(b) (b) Materials produced from used oil that are burned for energy recovery (e.g., used oil fuels) are regulated as used oil under this chapter.
