Mixed Waste Disposal and Scintillation Vial Disposal
Mixed Waste Disposal and Scintillation Fluid Disposal in The United States
Mixed wastes are wastes that exhibit two or more U.S.D.O.T. hazard classes. A mixed waste can contain radioisotopes as well as hazardous constituents combined in the same container creating liquids such as ones that are not only flammable but also considered radioactive known in that case as a radioactive mixed waste. Mixed wastes such as liquids considered radioactive and hazardous are accepted for disposal with ADCO Services anywhere in The United States. Occasionally scintillation vials, scintillation media, bottles of liquid, bulk liquids contained in drums (lab pack drums), and totes will fall into this mixed waste category where they are regulated by not only the U.S.E.P.A. but also the NRC or agreement state. If you have a liquid with two or more USDOT hazard classes present in the same container you will be subjected to special waste disposal requirements set forth by both regulatory agencies, special packaging requirements, and waste profiling.
Requirements such as paperwork preparation and profiling can be difficult and time-consuming for generators of mixed wastes, and with time constraints set forth by state and federal agencies, generators of mixed wastes may find it problematic to ship these hazardous materials. Profile approval for the disposal of radioactive mixed waste or other mixed wastes at a processor’s facility can further elongate the entire process and set you in violation with regulatory time limits.
