Once your waste is delisted, it is no longer considered RCRA hazardous waste. This declassification reduces your liability and minimizes other long-term risks associated with hazardous waste disposal.  

EPA Authorization  

Republic Services is the only commercial treatment company in the U.S. that is EPA authorized to delist 15 inorganic hazardous wastes. Delisting can be used on waste generated from both specific and nonspecific sources. 

Wastes that may be delisted include those designated under the land ban rules with the following codes: 

K002 – K008     K062    F006 – F008    F011    F012    F019 

The Delisting Process 

  • Our process involves conducting a series of reactions using wastes and reagents to neutralize the waste, precipitate the metals and create insoluble metal compounds. Throughout the process, data integrity is crucial. Elaborate and highly redundant detailed testing procedures ensure that all material leaving each Republic Services facility is in strict accordance with the delisting authorization granted by the EPA. 

  • Once the treatment residue has passed our closely monitored quality control procedures, it’s shipped to a non-hazardous landfill for proper disposal. Documentation with the laboratory tests results and location of the final disposal is then sent to the EPA. The generator also receives a certificate indicating that the waste has been rendered non-hazardous.  

 Benefits of Delisting Waste 

  • Delisting standards are much more aggressive than the standards for normal waste treatment. We take full responsibility for properly treating the waste – giving you the long-term security that no one else can provide. Our insurance and indemnification programs stand behind our delisting process. 

  • Delisting offers significant economic advantages. Delisted hazardous waste can be sent to a non-hazardous landfill – a less expensive, generally more available alternative to hazardous waste landfills.
