Guide to violations and violation codes found on back of the inspection report
100 kg § 27 gallons liquid § 220 lbs. solid; 1000kg § 270 gallons liquid § 2200 lbs. solid
Code
Regulation, description, guidance
Facility failed to get and EPA ID #. All generators (except silver only) must have an EPA ID #. If a facility generates
GR01
more than 100 kg of RCRA waste in any month they need a Federal EPA ID, otherwise they need a California EPA ID.
Facility failed to make a waste determination. Facilities must make waste determinations for all wastes. They can apply
GR02
generator knowledge, but it must be based on knowledge of the waste or process. Guidance can be given regarding lab
testing, indicating test methods or generic test names (e.g. fish bioassay or CAM-17 WET or pH) and certified labs for use.
Incomplete contingency plan info. Facilities that generate less than 1000 kg/month may post the following information by
GR03
the phone in place of generating a contingency plan: 1) emergency contact name and phone number, 2) fire department
phone number, and 3) location of extinguishers and spill equipment.
Personnel not adequately trained. Facilities that generate less than 1000 kg/month only have to demonstrate that staff are
GR04
familiar with waste handling procedures, not prepare a written training program or records of completion. Systemic
problems with labeling, open containers or other waste handling procedures may be reason to use this citation.
Failure to complete the manifest/incomplete consolidated manifest receipt. Generators are responsible for Boxes 1-3 &
GR05
5-15. Consolidated Manifest receipts must include the following information: Facility Name, EPA ID number, type and
quantity of waste, receiving facility name and address, manifest number, transporters name, signatures of generator and
transporter
Facility failed to submit manifest copy. Each manifest contains 6 copies, two of which must be returned to DTSC (one by
GR06
the generator). The generator now needs to photocopy their original manifest and send it to DTSC-GISS, P.O. Box 400,
Sacramento, CA 95812-0400. Inspectors may only confirm this is being done by asking the facility if it has been done.
Failed to submit exception report. Facilities need to notify DTSC when they don't get a copy of the manifest back from
GR07
the TSDF within 45 days of shipment. Within 60 days of this date, the report should be sent to DTSC.
No copies of bills-of-lading/receipts. Many wastes (oil filters, antifreeze, oil/water sludges, oily solids, brake fluid, paint
GR08
related waste, photo solutions, hydroxide sludges, PERC, asbestos, ink, lab packs from K-12 schools, fuel filters) can be
shipped under consolidated manifests or (lead-acid batteries and universal wastes) bills of lading. Transporters must leave a
receipt with the generator at pick up of these wastes. The receipts need to be kept 3 years.
No LDR. LDR notifications must go with all RCRA wastes. Look for LDRs for each waste with a federal waste code in
GR09
Box 13 of the manifest. LDRs should show what the waste (or code) is and the minimum treatment standard
Failed to submit a recycling report. Facilities that recycle more than 100 kg of waste for re-use onsite have to fill out the
GR10
report form. Onsite recycling includes reuse of wastewater in plating baths, antifreeze recycling units, and re-circulating
solvent sinks. Facilities may need help determining which exemption applies to them when filing the form.
Containers in poor condition. Containers holding waste should be free of severe rust, major dents and not leaking
GC01
GC02
Containers not closed. Containers must be kept closed unless adding or removing waste.
Empty containers not empty. Empty containers must not have a steady stream of liquid escape when inverted or solids
GC03
must be scraped clear as much as practical. Empty containers may still have some waste in them after emptying from
settling of residues-ensure the facility took measures to make the container empty (i.e. inverted it over new drum)
Not inspecting containers weekly. While inspections are required, logs are not required to be kept. Look for signs that
GC04
containers aren't being inspected such as improper labeling, open containers or containers in poor condition.
Tanks not inspected daily. Written tank inspection logs are not required. Only applies to operating days (day tank is
GC05
being used). Tank inspections should include condition of containment (including dryness), spill control, and corrosion.
GC06
Claiming satellite, but not at or near point of generation. Inspectors discretion for definition of "at or near". Wastes not
at or near don't qualify for 1-year satellite accumulation rule, must be held to 90/180/270 day accumulation times.
Satellite: Not under control of operator. Containers should be able to receive regular attention from a human being.
GC07
GC08
More than one container per wastestream. Satellite accumulation rules allow only one container, up to 55 gallons in size,
per satellite area for each waste stream unless it can be shown that it is not practical or safe.
Excluded recyclable material storage. These wastes are excluded, and not subject to Title 22 storage or accumulation
GC09
rules, they are materials. Use fire code and local ordinance to govern storage (i.e. containment, occupancy segregation)
unless no local ordinance exists, then default to Title 22 tank regs.
Accumulation greater than time limits (Storage without a permit). If the facility generates >100 kg/mo. (total waste),
GA01
clock starts with first drop. If the facility generates <1000 kg/mo.(total) AND never has >6000 kg onsite AND ships >200
miles they get 270 days to accumulate. If generating <1000 kg/mo. (total) AND never has >6000 kg onsite they get 180
days. If generating >1000 kg/mo. (total), they get 90 days to accumulate. If <100 kg/mo., get 180/270 days from the time
they reach the 100 kg total waste. If > 1 kg./mo. of Acutely/Extremely hazardous, treat like >1000 kg. of "regular" waste.
Satellite accumulation for greater than one year. Satellite wastes can be held for one year from first drop OR
GA02
90/180/270 days from time container is full, whichever comes first.
GA03
"Empty" containers held greater than one year. Empty containers should be sent offsite for scrap value, reconditioning ,
reuse or refill if greater than 5 gallons. Those ”5 gallons may be disposed of to a solid waste facility (with the trash).
Universal waste greater than one year. Universal wastes (fluorescent light tubes, non lead-acid batteries, mercury
GA04
switches from thermostats, aerosol cans and intact CRTs) may be stored onsite for up to one year.
GA05
§
Oil filters greater than 180 days/1yr. A facility can hold up to one ton (
4 drums of crushed or 8 drums of uncrushed) of
filters for one year. If the one ton limit is reached, the filters should be sent off within 180 days of the date the first filter
was added to each container.
GA06
§
Lead-acid batteries greater than 180 days/1 year. A facility can hold up to one ton (
65 batteries) of batteries for one
year. If the one ton limit is reached the batteries should be sent off within 180 days of the date on the first battery collected.
Labeling. The facility shall clearly mark all containers with the following: 1) the words "Hazardous waste", 2) composition
GL01
and physical state, 3) hazard property (e.g. toxic), 4) name and address of the generator, and 5) accumulation start date.
Marking satellite full date. Once a satellite container is full, it is subject to the 90/180/270 day or 1 yr. ceiling, which ever
GL02
comes first. The "full date" indicates the beginning of this time period, while the "original date" is used for the 1 yr. limit.
Marking "excluded recyclable materials". Recyclable materials do not have to put the same information on containers or
GL03
tanks as wastes. During accumulation of materials containers need to be marked with the words "excluded recyclable
materials" in place of “hazardous waste”. All other labeling requirements remain. If the material is being sent offsite, the
materials (DOT) labeling and placarding must be followed.
Marking Universal Waste. Universal waste containers must be marked "Universal Waste - (type)" OR " Waste (type)" OR
GL04
"used (type)". (Type) is Batteries, mercury thermostats, lamps, aerosol cans. CRTs can be marked "CRTs" or "CRT glass"
Oil Filter marking. Filters must be marked with the words "Drained Used Oil Filters" and the date the first filter is added
GL05
to the container.
GL06
Lead Acid Battery marking. Each battery must be marked with the date it is received or determined to no longer be
usable. Damaged batteries must have the date written on the outside of the container holding the damaged battery.
Used oil marking. All tanks and containers that hold used oil destined for offsite recycling must be marked with the words
GL07
"used oil". Used Oil containers do not have to have the physical state or hazardous properties marked on them.
"Empty" container marking. Contaminated containers that are empty (see GC03) must be marked with the date they are
GL08
emptied unless being sent for refilling. (All other packaging or product information should be removed or obscured.)
Tanks properly labeled. Tanks must be marked with the words “Hazardous Waste”, the contents of the tank, and the
GL09
accumulation start date.
GH01
Uncertified appliance recycler. Businesses must be certified by DTSC before removing PCB Capacitors, mercury
switches, CFCs, oil, or sodium azide canisters from major appliances. Each item MUST be removed prior to baling,
crushing, shredding, etc. Appliances may be sent by an unregistered location to a certified recycler with first being
processed. Once removed, all removed items must be handled as Hazardous Wastes.
Illegal Treatment. A permit or authorization (PBR/CA/CE) is needed to treat hazardous waste. Treatment is defined as:
GT01
method, technique or process that changes the physical, chemical or biological character or composition or a waste AND
causes the waste become non- or less hazardous. Many activities have been specifically exempted from this: (1) adding
absorbent that changes only the physical state of the waste, (2) dilution that does not result in a less hazardous waste, (3)
mixing like wastes for consolidation prior to offsite shipment, and (4) without adding heat, chemicals or pressure (a) sieving
or filtering liquids to remove solid fractions, (b) phase separation during accumulation, or (c) evaporation of water.
