EPA Releases Updated FAQ on Cathode Ray Tubes
The EPA’s Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery is pleased to announce the release of an updated set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the existing cathode ray tube (CRT) regulation. This set of FAQs includes both new and updated questions that have been added to the original set of CRT FAQs that were released April 2013. EPA first published the CRT FAQs to assist entities that collect, manage, and recycle used CRTs and CRT glass with understanding the federal regulations that apply to these materials. Several specific updates include:
(1) What RCRA requirements apply to CRT panel glass (which generally does not fail TCLP), and
(2) What it means for a person to “show that the material is potentially recyclable and has a feasible means of being recycled” under the speculative accumulation provision.
All of the FAQs related to the CRT regulation can be found on the EPA website. For additional information about this FAQ and CRT recycling, please contact ISRI staff Eric Harris, Director of Government and International Affairs, at EricHarris@ISRI.org and 202-662-8514 or David Wagger, Director of Environmental Management, at DavidWagger@ISRI.org and 202-662-8533.
