NR 660.40 NR 660.40 Additional regulation of certain hazardous waste recycling activities on a case-by-case basis.
NR 660.40(1)(1)The department may decide on a case-by-case basis that persons accumulating or storing the recyclable materials described in s. NR 661.0006 (1) (b) 4. should be regulated under s. NR 661.0006 (2) and (3). The basis for this decision is that the materials are being accumulated or stored in a manner that does not protect human health and the environment because the materials or their toxic constituents have not been adequately contained, or because the materials being accumulated or stored together are incompatible. In making this decision, the department will consider all of the following factors:
NR 660.40(1)(a) (a) The types of materials accumulated or stored and the amounts accumulated or stored.
NR 660.40(1)(b) (b) The method of accumulation or storage.
NR 660.40(1)(c) (c) The length of time the materials have been accumulated or stored before being reclaimed.
NR 660.40(1)(d) (d) Whether any contaminants are being released into the environment, or are likely to be so released.
NR 660.40(1)(e) (e) Other relevant factors.
NR 660.40(2) (2)The procedures for this decision are set forth in s. NR 660.41.

NR 660.41 NR 660.41 Procedures for case-by-case regulation of hazardous waste recycling activities. The department shall use the following procedures when determining whether to regulate hazardous waste recycling activities described in s. NR 661.0006 (1) (b) 4. under the provisions of s. NR 661.0006 (2) and (3), rather than under the provisions of subch. F of ch. NR 666.
NR 660.41(1) (1)If a generator is accumulating the waste, the department shall issue a special order setting forth the factual basis for the decision and stating that the person shall comply with subch. A of ch. NR 662, subch. C of ch. NR 662, subch. D of ch. NR 662 and subch. H of ch. NR 662. The special order shall become final within 30 days, unless the person served requests a public hearing to challenge the decision. Upon receiving such a request, the department shall hold a public hearing. The department shall provide notice of the hearing to the public and allow public participation at the hearing. The department shall issue a final order after the hearing stating whether or not compliance with ch. NR 662 is required. The order becomes effective 30 days after service of the decision unless the department specifies a later date.
NR 660.41(2) (2)If the person is accumulating the recyclable material as a storage facility, the special order will state that the person shall obtain a license according to all applicable provisions of ch. NR 670. The owner or operator of the facility shall apply for a license within no less than 60 days and no more than 6 months of the effective date of the order, as specified in the order. If the owner or operator of the facility wishes to object to the department's decision, the owner or operator may do so in the owner or operator's license application, in a public hearing held on the draft license or in comments filed on the draft license or on the notice of intent to deny the license. The fact sheet accompanying the license will specify the reasons for the department's determination. The question of whether the department's decision was proper will remain open for consideration during the public comment period discussed under ch. NR 670 and in any subsequent hearing.

NR 660.42 NR 660.42 Notification requirement for hazardous secondary material.
NR 660.42(1)(1)A facility managing hazardous secondary material under s. NR 660.30, 661.0004 (1) (w), (x), (y), or (za) shall send a notification to the department prior to operating under the regulatory provision and by March 1 of each even-numbered year thereafter using EPA Form 8700–12. The notification shall include all of the following information:
NR 660.42(1)(a) (a) The name, address, and EPA ID number, if applicable, of the facility.
NR 660.42(1)(b) (b) The name and telephone number of a contact person.
NR 660.42(1)(c) (c) The NAICS code of the facility.
NR 660.42(1)(d) (d) The regulation under which the hazardous secondary material will be managed.
NR 660.42(1)(e) (e) For reclaimers and intermediate facilities managing hazardous secondary material in accordance with s. NR 661.0004 (1) (x) or (y), whether the reclaimer or intermediate facility has financial assurance. Financial assurance is not applicable for persons managing hazardous secondary material generated and reclaimed under the control of the generator.
NR 660.42(1)(f) (f) The date the facility began or expects to begin managing the hazardous secondary material in accordance with the regulation.
NR 660.42(1)(g) (g) A list of hazardous secondary material that will be managed according to the regulation, reported as the EPA hazardous waste numbers that would apply if the hazardous secondary materials were managed as hazardous wastes.
NR 660.42(1)(h) (h) For each hazardous secondary material, whether the hazardous secondary material, or any portion thereof, will be managed in a land-based unit.
NR 660.42(1)(i) (i) The quantity of each hazardous secondary material to be managed annually.

NR 660.43 NR 660.43 Legitimate recycling of hazardous secondary material.
NR 660.43(1)(1)Factors that are required. Recycling of hazardous secondary material for the purpose of the exclusions or exemptions from the hazardous waste rules shall be legitimate. Hazardous secondary material that is not legitimately recycled is discarded material and is a solid waste. In determining if recycling is legitimate, a person shall address all of the requirements under this subsection and consider the requirements in sub. (2). Legitimate recycling under this subsection includes all of the following:
NR 660.43(1)(a) (a) Factor 1. Legitimate recycling shall involve a hazardous secondary material that provides a useful contribution to the recycling process or to a product or intermediate of the recycling process. The hazardous secondary material provides a useful contribution if it meets any of the following conditions:
NR 660.43(1)(a)1. 1. It contributes valuable ingredients to a product or intermediate.
NR 660.43(1)(a)2. 2. It replaces a catalyst or carrier in the recycling process.
NR 660.43(1)(a)3. 3. It is the source of a valuable constituent recovered in the recycling process.
NR 660.43(1)(a)4. 4. It is recovered or regenerated by the recycling process.
NR 660.43(1)(a)5. 5. It is used as an effective substitute for a commercial product.
NR 660.43(1)(b) (b) Factor 2. The recycling process shall produce a valuable product or intermediate. The product or intermediate is valuable if it is one of the following:
NR 660.43(1)(b)1. 1. Sold to a third party.
NR 660.43(1)(b)2. 2. Used by the recycler or the generator as an effective substitute for a commercial product or as an ingredient or intermediate in an industrial process.
NR 660.43(1)(c) (c) Factor 3. The generator and the recycler shall manage the hazardous secondary material as a valuable commodity when it is under their control. Where there is an analogous raw material, the hazardous secondary material shall be managed, at a minimum, in a manner consistent with the management of the raw material or in an equally protective manner. Where there is no analogous raw material, the hazardous secondary materials shall be contained. Hazardous secondary material that are released into the environment and are not recovered immediately are discarded.
NR 660.43(2) (2)Factor that shall be considered. In making a determination that a hazardous secondary material is legitimately recycled, a person shall evaluate all factors in par. (a) and consider legitimacy as a whole. If, after careful evaluation of these considerations, the factor in this subsection is not met, then this fact may be an indication that the material is not legitimately recycled. However, the factor in this subsection does not have to be met for the recycling to be considered legitimate. In evaluating the extent to which this factor is met and in determining whether a process that does not meet this factor is still legitimate, a person can consider exposure from toxics in the product, the bioavailability of the toxics in the product and other relevant considerations. In making a determination as to the overall legitimacy of a specific recycling activity, all of the following factors shall be considered:
NR 660.43(2)(a) (a) Factor 4. Whether any of the following applies to the product of the recycling process does not:
NR 660.43(2)(a)1. 1. Contains significant concentrations of any hazardous constituents found in ch. NR 661 Appendix VIII that are not found in analogous products.
NR 660.43(2)(a)2. 2. Contains concentrations of hazardous constituents found in ch. NR 661 Appendix VIII at levels that are significantly elevated from those found in analogous products.
NR 660.43(2)(a)3. 3. Exhibits a hazardous characteristic, as defined in subch. C of ch. NR 661, that analogous products do not exhibit.
