Conditions for exemption for a large quantity generator that accumulates dangerous waste.

Large quantity generators, not to include transporters as referenced in WAC 173-303-240(3), may accumulate dangerous waste on site without a permit or interim status, and without complying with the requirements of WAC 173-303-600 provided that all of the following conditions for exemption listed in this section are met.
(1) Off-site shipments. All dangerous waste is shipped off site to a designated facility or placed in an on-site facility which is permitted by the department under WAC 173-303-800 through 173-303-845 or recycled or treated on site in ninety days or less. A generator who accumulates dangerous waste for more than ninety days is an operator of a storage facility and is subject to the facility requirements of this chapter and the permit requirements of this chapter as a storage facility unless they have been granted an extension to the ninety-day period allowed pursuant to subsection (2) of this section;
(2) Accumulation time limit.
(a) The generator accumulates dangerous waste on site for no more than ninety days unless;
(i) The department has granted a maximum thirty-day extension to this ninety-day period. The department may, on a case-by-case basis, grant a maximum thirty-day extension to this ninety-day period if dangerous waste must remain on site due to unforeseen, temporary and uncontrollable circumstances; or
(ii) The F006 accumulation conditions for exemption in subsection (13) of this section are met.
(b) For the purposes of this section, the ninety-day accumulation period begins on the date that:
(i) The generator first generates a dangerous waste; or
(ii) The quantity (or aggregated quantity) of dangerous waste being accumulated by a small quantity generator first exceeds the accumulation limit for such waste (or wastes); or
(iii) The generator exceeds its satellite accumulation limits prescribed in WAC 173-303-174(1).
(3) Accumulation of waste in containers.
(a) Condition of containers. If a container holding dangerous waste is not in good condition (e.g., severe corroding or rusting or flaking or scaling, and/or apparent structural defects) or if it begins to leak or is leaking, the generator must transfer the dangerous waste from this container to a container that is in good condition and does not leak and continue to manage that container and waste in compliance with the conditions for exemption in this section. In addition, the owner or operator must address leaks and spills in accordance with the applicable provisions of WAC 173-303-145 and 173-303-360.
(b) Compatibility of waste with container. The generator must use a container made of or lined with materials which will not react with, and are otherwise compatible with, the dangerous waste to be stored, so that the ability of the container to contain the waste is not impaired.
(c) Management of containers.
