      PACKAGE B - THE 1987 HAZARDOUS WASTE GENERATION
                        AND MANAGEMENT REPORT
INTRODUCTION

The  Resource  Conservation and Recovery Act  of  1976 (RCRA) requires hazardous waste
generators and treatment, storage, and disposal faculties to  report to the U. S. Environmental
Protection Agency or authorized States at least every two years on their hazardous waste activities.
The vehicle for this reporting is the RCRA Annual or Biennial Report.  For the 1987 reporting
cycle, the Annual/Biennial Report format has been revised.

There are two packages of forms f6r the 1987 reporting cycle:

      Package A:    1987 Hazardous Waste Generation and Shipment Report; and,

      Package B:    1987 Hazardous Waste Generation and Management Report.

Every site receiving this mailing must return one of these report packages. Do NOT complete both
packages. Completion of the appropriate package completely satisfies a site's 1987 RCRA annual
or biennial reporting responsibilities.  The nature of a site's 1987 hazardous waste  activities
determines which  of the two packages it must  complete.  To determine  which  package  is
appropriate for your site, read the reporting criteria and definitions below.


WHICH PACKAGE MUST BE COMPLETED FOR THIS SITE?

One package must be completed for every site receiving this mailing:

      Complete Package A - if, in 1987, hazardous wastes were not managed at this site, as
      defined in the box below, or

      Complete Package B — if, in 1987, hazardous wastes were managed at this site, as defined in
      the box below.
Hazardous wastes were managed at a site if, in 1987, it met any of the following criteria:

       (1)   the site operated under RCRA Interim Status (Part A Permit Application filed); or

       (2)   the site operated under a RCRA Permit (Part B Permit Application approved); or

       (3)   the site treated, disposed, or recycled hazardous wastes on site in units exempt from
            RCRA permitting  requirements  (for example,  tank  systems  used  to  treat
            wastewaters containing hazardous waste prior to discharge under an NPDES permit;
            on site distillation units used to  recover waste solvents; etc.).

NOTE: For purpose of these reporting requirements, the above definition of hazardous waste
management does not include short term accumulation of hazardous waste  in areas not requiring
RCRA permits.

-------
 This booklet contains instructions for completing Package B: Hazardous Waste Generation and
 Management Report.  These instructions explain which forms in Package B must be completed and
 how to complete them. If hazardous wastes were not managed at this site in 1987, as defined in the
 box above, you should instead follow the instructions for Package A and complete the forms in that
 package.  If this site is required to complete Package A and you did not receive the package or its
 Instructions, contact the office listed on page 6 under "WHERE AND WHEN TO FILE" and
 request a copy.
 OVERVIEW OF FORMS IN PACKAGE B

 Package B consists of seven forms. You may not be required to complete all forms in Package B
 for this site, but you must at least complete and return the first form, Form 1C - Identification and
 Certification.  The instructions for each form explain which sites are required to complete it, which
 is determined by the nature of the site's 1987 hazardous waste management activities, and whether
 the site met the Minimum Quantity Reporting Requirements presented on page 4.

 You will find specific instructions for each form later in this booklet. An overview of the forms in
 Package B is given below.

-------
AUTHORITY

The authorizing legislation for the 1987 Hazardous Waste Generation and Management Report is
contained in Sections 3002, 3004, and 3007 of the  Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of
1976 (RCRA), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA).
Sections 3002 and 3004 require hazardous waste generators and treatment, storage, and disposal
facilities to report to EPA or authorized States at least every two years on: the quantities, nature,
and disposition of generated hazardous waste; the efforts taken to reduce the volume and toxicity
of hazardous waste; and changes achieved  in  the volume and toxicity of hazardous waste in
comparison to previous years.  Section 3007 authorizes EPA and authorized States to obtain
additional data to support development or enforcement of RCRA regulations.


CONFIDENTIALITY

You may not  withhold information  from the Administrator of EPA because it is confidential.
However, when the Administrator is requested to consider information confidential,  he is required
to treat it according to EPA regulations contained in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations,
Part 2, Subpart B.

These  regulations provide that a  business  may, if it  desires,  assert a claim of business
confidentiality covering all or part of the information furnished to EPA. Section 2.203(b) explains
how to assert a claim.

The Agency will treat information covered by such  a claim in accordance with the procedures set
forth in the Subpart B regulations. If someone requests release of information covered by a claim
of confidentiality or if the Agency otherwise decides to make a determination as to whether such
information is entitled to confidential treatment,  EPA will notify the business.   EPA will not
disclose information as to when a claim of confidentiality has been made except to the extent and
in accordance with 40 CFR  Part  2, Subpart  B.  If, however,  the business does not claim
confidentiality when it furnishes information to EPA, EPA may make the information available to
the public without notice to the business.

-------
  MINIMUM QUANTITY REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
 This site met the Minimum Quantity Reporting Requirements if, in 1987, the site met any of the
 following criteria:

       (1)  The site generated in any single month,  1,000 kg (2,200 Ibs) or more of RCRA
           hazardous waste; or

       (2)  The site generated in any single month, or accumulated at any time, 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of
           RCRA acute hazardous waste; or

       (3)  The site generated or accumulated at any  time more than 100 kg (220 Ibs) of spill
           cleanup material contaminated with RCRA acute hazardous waste.

If this site did not meet any of the Minimum Quantity Reporting Requirements for 1987, you are
not required to complete Form GM nor either part of Form WM. You must  still complete and
return Form 1C - Identification and Certification (pursuant to Section 3007 of RCRA),  and may
also be required to complete Forms PS, WR, or OI.  Review the instructions for these  forms to
determine which, if any, are to be completed for this site.

                                                                             FORM 1C

Section V: Certification
Do not complete Section V until all forms required for submission are present, complete, and
accurate.  Then, enter your full name, title, and the date. Read the certification statement, and
sign the form. Refer to page 6 of this booklet for mailing instructions.


Section VI: Does this site's EPA ID authorize hazardous waste generation?
The purpose of Section VI is to determine:  (1) whether  this site has  submitted  an EPA
Notification Form 8700-12 indicating that hazardous wastes are or were generated at the site; or
(2) whether the site's EPA Identification  Number was assigned by EPA or the State because
hazardous wastes are or were generated at this site.

If you have submitted and subsequently withdrawn a generator notification, mark [X] in the "No"
box and skip to Section VII.

If you have never notified EPA that hazardous waste was generated at this site and if the site does
not generate hazardous waste, mark [X] in the "No" box and skip to Section VII.

Otherwise, answer the questions in Section VI to update the  information on generation of
hazardous waste that this site provided  EPA when it obtained its  EPA Identification  Number.
Definitions of key terms are provided below. A site which generates solid waste must determine if
that waste is a hazardous waste or if that waste is "excluded" from regulation  under 40 CFR
261.4(b). If that waste is excluded it need not be reported. A list of excluded wastes is provided in
the 1987 Hazardous Waste GenerationrShipment and Management Report Codebook, page 46.

Under RCRA regulations,  every site which generates,  treats, stores, or disposes  of hazardous
waste must inform EPA of its hazardous waste activity by filing EPA Form 8700-12, Notification of
Hazardous Waste Activity.  After receiving the notification form, EPA assigns an  identification
number (EPA ID) to the site.  Refer to your  copy of Form 8700-12 to determine if this site's
notification status has changed and needs to be updated.

EPA regulates generators of hazardous waste according to the three categories defined below.

Category 1:   More than 1000 kg (2.200 Ibs) in one or more months (Large Quantity Generator)
             Mark  [X] if your  site's hazardous waste generation during 1987 was  correctly
             described by the following criteria: (1) generated in one or more months: 1,000 kg
             (2,200 Ibs) or more of hazardous waste, more than 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of acute hazardous
             waste, or  more  than  100 kg (220 Ibs)  of acute  hazardous  spill debris;  or (2)
             accumulated at any time during 1987 more than: 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of acute hazardous
             waste, or  100 kg (220 Ibs) acute hazardous spill debris.

Category 2:   More than 100  kg (220 Ibs) but no more than 1.000 kg (2,200 Ibs) in any single
             month (Small Quantity Generator)
             Mark [X]  if your site's hazardous waste  generation  during 1987 made it a small
             quantity generator.  A site is a small quantity generator in any given month if it
             meets the following criteria: (1) in every single month, the site generated more
             than 100 kg (220 Ibs) but no more than 1,000 kg (2,200 Ibs) of hazardous waste, and
             no more than 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of acute hazardous waste, and no more than 100 kg (220
             Ibs) of material from the cleanup of a spillage of acute hazardous wastes; and (2)
             the site accumulated no more than 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of acute hazardous waste, and no
             more than 100 kg (220 Ibs) of material  from the cleanup of a spillage of acute
             hazardous wastes; and (3) the site stored its wastes in tanks or  containers in a
             manner consistent with regulatory provisions.

-------
                                                                             FORM 1C

              To be a small quantity generator for 1987, a site must meet these criteria each
              month. If a site meets the criteria for "more than 1,000 kg (2,220 Ibs) in one or
              more months" in any month of 1987, mark [X] in the Category 1 box instead.

 Category 3:   No more than 100 kg (220 Ibs) in every single month (Conditionally Exempt Small
              Quantity Generator)
              Mark [X]  if your  site's  hazardous  waste generation during 1987  made  it a
              conditionally exempt  small quantity generator for  every month.  A site  is a
              conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG) in any given month, if for
              that month, it meets the following criteria: (1) the site generated no more than 100
              kg (220 Ibs) of hazardous waste, and no more than 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of acute hazardous
              waste, and no more than 100 kg (220 Ibs) of material from the cleanup of a spillage
              of acute hazardous wastes; and (2) the site accumulated no more than 1,000 kg
              (2200 Ibs) of hazardous waste, and no more than 1 kg (2.2 Ibs) of acute hazardous
              waste, and no more than 100 kg (220 Ibs) of material from the cleanup of a spillage
              of acute hazardous wastes; and (3) the site treated or  disposed of the hazardous
              wastes in a manner consistent with regulatory provisions.  (40 CFR 261.5B and
              261.5g3).

              To be a conditionally exempt small quantity generator for 1987, a site must meet
              these criteria every month of that year.  If site meets  the criteria for either box
              above in any month of 1987, one of those boxes should be checked instead.


 Section VII:  Does this site have RCRA Interim Status or a RCRA Permit to treat, store, or
 dispose of hazardous waste?
 Answer the questions in Section VH to update information on this site's treatment,  storage, or
 disposal activities. Definitions of key terms are  provided below.  A  site which generates solid
 waste must determine if that waste is a hazardous waste or if that waste is "excluded" from
 regulation under 40 CFR 261.4(b). If that waste is excluded, it need not be reported.  A list of
 excluded wastes is provided in the 1987 Hazardous Waste Generation, Shipment and Management
 Report Codebook, page 46.

 Part A Permit Application:
 The application  is the first step in obtaining a RCRA  permit to treat,  store, or  dispose of
 hazardous waste.  This application defines the processes to be used for treatment, storage, and
 disposal of hazardous waste; the design  capacity of such  processes; and the specific hazardous
wastes to be handled at the applying facility.  A Part A application must have been filed to obtain
 "interim status" to allow facilities, existing prior  to promulgation of the RCRA regulations, to
continue operations until their final permit is issued. Thus, if your site has either interim status or
a final RCRA permit to handle hazardous waste, a Part A application has been submitted for your
site.

RCRA Regulated Units:
These are units which treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste and are subject to regulation (i.e.,
required to have a RCRA permit). Interim Status Permits are included.  Excluded are containers
and tanks used exclusively for short-term accumulation exempted under 40 CFR 262.34.


Section  Vnfr  Do you wish to withdraw this  site's generator notification or EPA  Part A
application?
Answer the questions in Section VHI to clarify your  status.   If you answer "Yes," withdraw
generator notification, EPA will automatically withdraw your generator notification. However, if
you answer "Yes," withdraw Part A permit application,  EPA will contact your site to begin
procedures for permit application withdrawal

Section IX: Does this site have an area not requiring a RCRA Part A or Part B permit that is used
exclusively for the short-term accumulation of hazardous waste?
Mark [X] in the "Yes" box if your site has an area not requiring a RCRA permit that is used
exclusively for the short-term accumulation of hazardous waste.  Report whether the area has
tanks and/or containers.  Report the number of tanks and their total capacity in gallons.  Do not
report the number of containers or their capacity.

Mark [X] in the "No" box  if your site did not accumulate any hazardous waste  in tanks or

                          INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING
                 FORM WM - WASTE MINIMIZATION PART I
WHO MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM?

Form WM Part I, describing efforts undertaken to implement waste minimization programs, must
be completed by all generators required to file an Annual/Biennial Report.  This requirement was
established in  response to statutory provisions included in the Hazardous and  Solid Waste
Amendments of 1984 (HSWA).   Note that  generators shipping hazardous waste off site are
required to  certify,  on Item 16 of the  Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest, that they have a
program in place to reduce, to the degree determined economically practicable, the volume and
toxicity of hazardous waste generated. A similar certification must also be made by generators
who have obtained a  RCRA  treatment, storage,  or disposal permit.  Consistent  with these
certification requirements, generators must report, on Form WM Part I, the efforts undertaken to
implement waste minimization programs.

Generators required to file an Annual/Biennial Report are those that met or exceeded, in 1987,
the minimum quantity reporting requirements listed on page 4.
HOW TO COMPLETE THIS FORM

Form WM Part I consists of ten questions about efforts undertaken to implement hazardous waste
minimization programs.  Answer all ten questions.  Use the Comments section at the end of the
form to clarify or continue any entry.  Reference the comment by entering the question number.
Key terms are defined below.

Waste minimization  means the reduction, to the  extent feasible,  of hazardous waste that  is
                    generated  or  subsequently  treated,  stored,  or  disposed.     Waste
                    minimization includes any source reduction or recycling activity undertaken
                    by a generator that results in:  (1) the reduction of total volume or quantity
                    of hazardous waste; (2) the reduction of toxicity of hazardous waste; or (3)
                    both, as long as the reduction is  consistent with the goal of minimizing
                    present and future threats to human health and the environment.
Source reduction
Recycling
means the reduction or elimination of waste at the source, usually within a
process.   Source  reduction  measures include process  modifications,
feedstock substitutions, improvements  in feedstock purity, housekeeping
and management practices, increases in the efficiency of machinery, and
recycling within a process. Source reduction implies any action that reduces
the amount of waste exiting a process.

means the use  or  reuse of a waste  as an effective substitute for a
commercial product, or as an ingredient or feedstock in an  industrial
process.  It also refers to the reclamation of useful constituent fractions
within a waste material or removal of contaminants from a waste to allow it
to be reused.  As used  in this  report, recycling implies use,  reuse, or
reclamation of a waste, either on site or off site, after it has been generated.

                 FORM WM - WASTE MINIMIZATION PART II
 WHO MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM?

 Form WM Part n must be completed only by generators that engaged in an activity during 1987
 that resulted in waste minimization.  Waste minimization means: (1) reduction in the volume
 and/or toxicity of hazardous waste generated as a result of source reduction; and/or (2) reduction
 in the volume and/or toxicity of hazardous waste subsequently treated, stored, or disposed as a
 result of on-site or off-site recycling.

 If no waste minimization results were achieved during 1987, mark [XJ in the space provided and
 return Form WM Part n with your submission.
HOW TO COMPLETE THIS FORM

Form WM Part n is divided into four sections that together document the reduction in volume
and/or  toxicity of  a  single hazardous waste  achieved  through waste minimization activity
undertaken during 1987. Make and complete a photocopy of this form for each hazardous waste
that was minimized during 1987. Throughout the form, enter "DK" if the information requested is
not known  or is not available; enter "NA" if the information requested is not applicable. Use the
Comments section at the end of the form to clarify or continue any entry.   Reference the
comment by entering the section number and box letter. Key terms are defined below.

Waste minimization  means the reduction, to the extent  feasible, of waste that is generated or
                    subsequently treated, stored, or disposed.  Waste minimization includes
                    any source reduction or recycling activity undertaken by a generator that
                    results in:   (1) the reduction of total volume  or quantity of hazardous
                    waste; (2) the reduction of toxicity of hazardous waste; or (3) both, as long
                    as the reduction is consistent with the goal of minimizing present and
                    future threats to human health and the environment.
Source redaction
Recycling
means the reduction or elimination of hazardous waste  at the source,
usually within a process.   Source reduction  measures include process
modifications, feedstock substitutions, improvements in feedstock purity,
housekeeping and  management practices, increases  in the efficiency of
machinery, and recycling within a process.  Source reduction implies any
action that reduces the amount of waste exiting a process.

Box C:  Production Ratio
        The production ratio is a measure of the change in the production quantity or service
        activity between 1987 and 1986.  Use the work sheet on the following page to calculate
        the production ratio by dividing the number of units of the product or service (reported
        in Section I, Box C) in 1987 by the comparable number for 1986.  Enter the resulting
        production ratio in Box C. Selection of an appropriate measure of production quantity
        or service activity is the responsibility of the respondent, but the measure is never to be
        based on sales dollars. The measure of production selected is to remain consistent for all
        future reporting years.

        If you entered "NA" for 1986 quantity generated (Section II, Box A), enter "NA" in Box C
        also. If it is not possible, for any reason, to calculate the production ratio enter "NA"  in
        BoxC.

Section II (Continued)

        Example 1:
        If the firm manufactures tools using a process which generates a hazardous waste, the
        production ratio would indicate the change in the number of tools produced in 1987
        compared to the preceding year, 1986.

        1,200 tools were produced in 1987 and  1,000 tools  were produced  in  1986.  The
        production ratio would equal 1,200 divided by 1,000.

                 (1987 production) 12QQ  _  12 (  duction ratio)
                 (1986 production) 1,000                       '

        The number "1.2" would be entered in Box C.

        Example 2:
        If a firm that manufactures stainless steel food containers is losing market share to
        competitors making plastic containers, its production might have declined between 1986
        and 1987.

        82,000 containers were produced in 1987 and 97,000 containers were produced in 1986.
        The production ratio would equal 82,000 divided by 97,000.
                 (1987 production) g« =  0.85 (production ratio)
                 (1986 production) 97,000        ^             '

       The number "0.85" would be entered in Box C.

       Example 3:
       If the firm is a dry cleaner that cleaned 2,000 garments in 1986 and 2,200 garments in
       1987, the production ratio would indicate the change in the number of garments cleaned.
       The production ratio would equal 2,200 divided by 2,000.

Box E:  Waste Minimization: Recycling
        Box E requires three entries. Follow the instructions in sequence.

        1.  Review the Recycling Activity Codes on the following page and enter the codes that
            best describe on-site or off-site recycling of the hazardous waste that was minimized
            during 1987.  In this report, recycling means the use or reuse of hazardous waste as
            an effective substitute for a commercial product or as an ingredient or feedstock in
            an industrial process.   Recycling refers to the  reclamation  of useful constituent
            fractions within waste material or the removal of contaminants from waste to allow it
            to be reused. Closed loop (in process) recycling is considered source reduction and
            should not be reported  in Box E.   If one code adequately describes the recycling
            activity, leave blank the field marked "code 2."

           in this number. Report the quantity in the unit of measure reported in Section I, Box
           F. If no hazardous waste was recycled on site or off site enter "NA."

           Quantity  information may be obtained from Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest
           Forms if the waste was shipped off site for recycling.  If more than one shipment of
           the waste was shipped off site for recycling, add the quantities and report only the
           sum.  If the waste was recycled on site, use  your own records to determine  the
           quantity recycled. If no records of the exact quantity recycled are available, estimate
           the quantity and report the method you used in the Comments section at the end of
           the form.  Reference the comment by noting the section number and box letter.

BoxF:  Waste Minimization:  Source Reduction
        Box F requires several entries. Follow the instructions in sequence.

        1.  Review the Source Reduction Activity Codes below and enter the codes that best
           describe source reduction activities applied to the  hazardous waste reported in
           Section I.  In this report, source reduction means the reduction or elimination of
           waste at the source, usually within a process.  Source reduction measures include
           process modifications, feedstock substitutions, improvements  in feedstock purity,
           housekeeping and management practices, increases in the  efficiency of machinery,
           and recycling within a process.  Source reduction implies any action that reduces the
           amount of waste exiting a process. Therefore, closed loop (in process) recycling
           should be reported in Box F. If one code adequately describes the source reduction
           activity, leave blank the fields marked "code 2" and "code 3".

        2.  In the field labeled "Quantity Prevented," enter the 1987 quantity of hazardous waste
           that was never generated because of source reduction activity.  Report the quantity
           in the unit of measure reported in Section I, Box F.

           If you have completed Section II, Boxes A, B, and C, you can calculate "Quantity

           may estimate the quantity of hazardous waste prevented in 1987 using another
           method.  Review the five examples that follow to consider which approach your site
           might utilize. However, if you do not use the preferred method, you must describe
           your computation in the Comments section at the end of the form.  Reference the
           comment  by entering the section number and  box letter.   A  blank Quantity
           Prevented Worksheet is included following Example 5, page 42.

Section II (Continued)

           Example 1:
           A firm manufactures tools using a process which generates hazardous waste. In
            1986, 1,000 tools were produced and in 1987, 1,200 tools were produced.  The
            production ratio for the firm is 1.2.  In 1987, the firm introduced a new process
            to minimize the quantity of hazardous waste it generated.
            (1987 production)  1.200
            (1986 production)  1,000
1.2 (production ratio)
                              Quantity Prevented Worksheet

            Step 1: Multiply the 1986 quantity generated by the production ratio.

                            2.000   1986 quantity generated (from Box A)

                        x    1.2     Times production ratio (from Box C)

                        =   2.400   Equals  quantity  that  would have been generated
                                    without waste minimization

            Step 2: Subtract  the  reporting  year  quantity  (Box  B) from  the  quantity
            generated without the waste minimization project or activity (step 1 above).

                            2.400   Quantity without waste minimization

                        -   1.800   Minus 1987 quantity generated (from Box B)

                        =    600    Equals  quantity  of generation prevented (enter in
                                    Box F, quantity prevented)

            Step 3: Enter quantity prevented in Box F.

Section II (Continued)

           Example 2:
           This  example illustrates  how the firm in Example 1 would have completed
            Section II if the production had increased.

           A firm  manufactures tools using a process which generates hazardous waste. In
            1986 the firm produced 1,000 tools; in 1987, the firm produced 5,000 tools.  The
            production  ratio for the  firm is 5.0.  The production ratio is an indicator of
            growth or decline in product produced. In 1987, the firm, anticipating continued
            rapid growth  and wishing to reduce costs for waste management, introduced a
            new  process  to minimize the quantity  of  hazardous waste it generated.   To
            complete form WM Part II, the firm calculated its waste minimization results as
            follows.
                                      = 5.0 (production ratio)

                                    without waste minimization

            Step 2: Subtract  the reporting year quantity (Box B)  from  the  quantity

       Section II (Continued)

                  Example 3:
                  A firm uses a solvent bath to clean continuous filament wire in a batch process.
                   Since the firm has no record of how much wire passes through the bath before
                   the solvent is changed, the production ratio is "NA".  The firm does have a
                   record of the number of times the solvent is changed in the year.  To reduce the
                   amount of waste exiting the process, in 1987 the firm replaced the original bath
                   container with a new container that holds 20 gallons less solvent per changing.

                  The quantity of waste generated from the solvent bath in  1986,  before the
                   container was replaced, was 2,000 gallons.  Note  that this number was known
                   through a recordkeeping system that tracked waste generation by process.

                  The number of times the bath was changed was 10, or 200 gallons per changing.
                   This number was known through the firm's recordkeeping system.

                  Using the new container, changing the bath 10 times in 1987, the firm generated
                   only 180 gallons of waste per changing.   Thus, the total quantity of  waste
                   generated from the solvent bath in 1987, was 1,800 gallons. (Box A minus Box B
                   quantities)

                  By replacing the bath  container the firm prevented 200 gallons of hazardous
                   waste from beng generated. (Entered in Box F, quantity prevented)

                   Since  the firm did not use the preferred method of calculating the quantity
                   prevented, the Comments section would also be completed as follows:

         Section II (Continued)

                    Example 4:
                    This example illustrates how  the  firm  in Example 3  above would complete
                    Section II if the production had increased.

                    A firm uses a solvent bath to clean continuous filament wire in a batch process.
                    Since the firm has no record of how much wire passes through the bath before
                    the solvent is changed, it cannot compute a production ratio as required in Box
                    C.  The firm does have a record of the  size of the solvent bath container and
                    number of times the solvent is changed in a year.  In 1986, the container held 200
                    gallons and the solvent bath was changed 10 times.

                    In 1987, the firm's production of wire increased in response to an aggressive sales
                    campaign. The firm was interested in reducing the costs of waste  management
                    and purchased a new solvent bath container 20 gallons smaller but still adequate
                    Nevertheless, because of increased production, the solvent had to be changed 20
                    times per year.

                    To compute the "Quantity prevented" entry on  the form, the firm estimated the
                    amount of  solvent waste that  would  have been generated using the original
                    container (200 gal.) with the increased number of changes (20).  The firm then
                    subtracted from this number the actual amount of solvent waste generated.

                    200 gal. x 20 changes = 4,000 gal. minus Box B, 3,600

      FORM PS - WASTE TREATMENT, STORAGE, DISPOSAL, OR
                      RECYCLING PROCESS SYSTEM
WHO MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM?

Form PS must be completed by every site that, during 1987, had one or more hazardous waste
management systems, existing or under construction, composed of:

(1)   treatment, storage, disposal, or recycling processes subject to RCRA interim status or
      permit requirements; or
(2)   treatment, disposal, or  recycling processes exempt from RCRA interim status or permit
      requirements.

Do not complete Form PS for areas or tanks exempt from RCRA permit requirements that were
used exclusively for short term accumulation of hazardous waste.

If you are not required to complete Form PS, simply mark [X] in the space provided on the form
and return Form PS with your submission.
HOW TO COMPLETE THIS FORM

Form PS is divided into four sections that together document the utilization, capacity, and planned
changes in capacity of a hazardous waste treatment, storage, disposal or recycling (T/S/D/R)
system  existing or under construction during 1987. Make and complete a photocopy of Form PS
for each T/S/D/R system. Throughout .the form, enter "DK" if the information requested is not
known  or not available; enter "NA" if the information requested is not applicable.  Use the
Comments section at the bottom of the form to clarify or continue any entry.  Reference the
comment by entering the section number and box letter.

To prepare for completing Form PS:
(1) Read the section below "WHAT IS  A T/S/D/R  SYSTEM?" to  learn the definition of
    T/S/D/R system used for reporting on Form PS, and the difference between single versus
    multiple process systems; and
(2) Determine, based on this definition, the types and number of T/S/D/R systems you must
    report for this site.

To complete Form PS:
(1) Follow  the  item-by-item instructions beginning on page 57.  Pay  special  attention to
    instructions regarding influents and capacities of multiple process systems, and systems that
    share units or processes with other systems, to avoid over-reporting; and
(2) Refer to the rules and examples for single and multiple process T/S/D/R systems beginning
    on page 46.

                                                                          FORM PS
WHAT IS A T/S/D/R SYSTEM?
A T/S/D/R system is one or more treatment, storage, disposal, or recycling units used to carry
out one or a unique sequence of hazardous waste management processes. Please note that this
definition applies only to Form PS reporting.

Treatment, storage, disposal and recycling units include tanks, containers, incinerators, kilns,
waste piles, underground injection wells, landfills and surface impoundments.  Hazardous waste
treatment,  storage  disposal,  or recycling  processes  include  recovery/reuse;  solidification/
stabilization;  incineration/thermal  treatment;  physical,  chemical,  and biological treatment;
storage;  disposal;  and  recycling.   For  purposes  of Form PS  reporting,  hazardous  waste
management  processes occurring in units exempt  from RCRA permitting standards are also
considered T/S/D/R systems, and must be described on Form PS.

The instructions for Form PS classify T/S/D/R systems  into two major types:  single process
systems and multiple process systems. Since the rules and instructions for reporting each type of
system are different, the terms are defined below.

Single Process System

   A Single Process System is a T/S/D/R system composed of one hazardous waste treatment,
   storage, disposal, or recycling process. A single process system must be identified by one of the
   On-site Treatment, Storage, Disposal, and Recycling (T/S/D/R) Codes that begin on page 48
   of the 1987 Hazardous Waste Generation, Shipment and Management Codebook. The process
   performed by a single process system can be carried out  in one unit or in several units.

      Examples of Single Process Systems in One Unit               On-Site T/S/D/R Code

      Storage in a storage tank	     S02
      Drum storage in a single permitted storage area	     SOI

Multiple Process System
   A Multiple Process System is a T/S/D/R system composed of two or more different processes
   used together to  manage hazardous waste.  A system with multiple  processes must  be
   identified by more than one T/S/D/R code.  Multiple processes are usually carried out in two
   or more units, but can also occur in a single unit.
     Examples of a Multiple Process System in Two or More Units

     Cyanide oxidation via alkaline chlorination in a tank
      followed by chemical precipitation in a second tank; clarification
      in a third tank; and finally sludge dewatering in a surface
      impoundment

RULES AND EXAMPLES FOR SINGLE PROCESS SYSTEMS

     There are five specific rules presented below that determine the number and types of
     systems that a site must report.  Rules 1, 2 and 3 identify single process systems.  Rules 4
     and 5 identify multiple process systems, and systems that share units or processes with other
     systems. Examples are provided to show how each rule applies.
 Rule 1:   A single process carried out in one unit is reported as one system.
Example 1.1:  One process in one unit = One single process system

                                                               -> under

       This site has one system on site that consists of one unit (a tank) used to carry out
       one process (neutralization). In this example, the site would complete one copy of
       Form PS for its system. Note that more than one single process system may exist
       at a site, each one requiring a separate Form PS (see Example 2.3).
                                            46

                                                                       FORM PS
 Rule!:   Processes that  occur  in multiple units  can  be reported as one
            system if all units have the same;
                1.  On-site T/S/D/R code (page 48 of the Codebook);
                2.  Operational status code (page 59 below); and
                3.  Regulatory status code (page 58 below).
            If any of these codes are  different for any unit  in  which the
            process occurs, you must report that unit as a separate system on
            a separate Form PS.
Examples 2.1 and 2.2 meet all three criteria in Rule 2, each requiring only one Form PS:

Example 2.1:  One process in three units = One single process system

      This site has three batch still distillation units that operated in 1987 under RCRA
      permits.  One copy of Form PS would be completed for the three operational
      distillation units together, treating them as one single process system.

       The two settling units have the same T/S/D/R codes and were operating in 1987
       under RCRA permits.  Since the T/S/D/R codes of the surface impoundment and
       tank are identical, and the operating and regulatory status are identical, one copy
       of Form PS would be  completed for the two settling units, treating them as one
       system.


Examples 2.3 through 2.6 illustrate situations in which at least one of the three criteria in Rule 2 is
violated. In each case, more than one Form PS must be completed.

       The two processes (neutralization and ion exchange)  have identical operational

       are two separate systems. In this example, the site would complete two copies of
       Form PS, one for each system.

        regulation. Each settling unit is considered a separate system; and, therefore; two
        copies of Form PS would be completed, one for the surface impoundment and a

       A site has one tank that is used to carry out two different processes at different
       times.  Sometimes the plant generates  acidic waste that goes through neutrali-
       zation in a tank before discharge. At other times, the plant generates slurry waste
       that must go through a clarification process before discharge.  The plant uses the
       same tank at different times to perform  these two processes. Two systems would
       be reported.  Two copies of Form PS would be completed, one for  each process
       conducted in the tank. These two systems are said to "share" a unit, in this case the
       tank (See Rule 5 below).

 Rule 3:   Certain processes must  always  be reported as single process

            System 3:  D02

      Solvent wastes are incinerated on site in a fixed hearth incinerator after storage in
      tanks. Ash from the incinerator, still a hazardous waste, is disposed of in an on-site
      landfill. Scrubber water from the incinerator's air pollution control system is piped
      to an off-site waste water treatment facility. Although the processes occur in a
      sequence, the site operates three single process systems because incinerators and
      disposal processes must always be reported as single processes.  Each system is
      reported separately, therefore three copies of Form PS would be completed. Note
      that the two storage tanks are reported as a single process on a single copy of
      Form PS.

                                                                      disposal

A site generates a waste that must be sent through a series of treatment processes before
discharge under an NPDES permit. The waste first goes through hexavalent chromium reduction
(C21), passes through a chemical precipitation process (C01), is  clarified (Pll), and is finally
passed through a surface impoundment for equalization (P01), before discharge.  None of these
processes is included in the list in Rule 3. This sequence of processes forms one multiple process
system. One copy of Form PS would be completed for this system.

[Note that the sludge from the equalization (P01) process is from incidental settling; therefore
settling is not reported as a separate T/S/D/R process for the surface impoundment. Note also,
that periodic dredging of the surface impoundment occurs since it is not to be closed as a landfill;
therefore it is not reported as a separate system under Rule 3.]

       Sites may have more than one multiple process system. Sites with multiple process
       systems may also have single process systems.  In this example, the site has three
       systems:
              System 1:
              System 2:
              System 3:
C21,C01,P11,P01
S02,P01,C11
S02
       System 1  and System 2 are multiple process systems  because each is a unique
       sequence  of processes used together to manage hazardous waste.  System 3 is a
       single process system in two  units.  Note that because the tank storage process
       (S02) in System 2 is part of a  multiple process system, it is not included in System
       3, even though it  has the same T/S/D/R code. Three copies of Form PS would be
       completed for this site, one for each system.

       A site performs two treatment processes simultaneously, clarification (Pll) and oil
       skimming (P15), in one tank.  Because these two processes are used together to
       manage a hazardous waste, they form a multiple process system.  One copy of
       Form PS would be completed for this treatment system.

       A site  performs  three treatment processes  sequentially,  equalization (P01)
       followed by cyanide oxidation through alkaline chlorination (C41) followed by pH
       adjustment (Oil), in a single  tank.  Because these three processes are used
       together to manage a hazardous waste, they form a multiple process system.  One
       copy of Form PS would be completed for this treatment system.


Note that in Examples 4.3 and 4.4, neither system shares a unit or process with any other system.
Contrast these systems to those shown in Examples 5.1-5.3 and to the system in Example 2.6, in
which systems do share processes or units with other systems.

 Rule 5:   In  some  cases  systems  share units  or  processes  with  other

       The site has two multiple process systems that share processes:
              System 1-A:
              System 1-B:
    C21,C01,P11
    C01,P11
       The three processes in System 1-A form a unique sequence used together to treat
       the plant's contact cooling water. Two of these processes, C01 and Pll, also form a
       second unique sequence (identified as System 1-B), used to treat the plant's
       general rinses.  Each  system  consists of a unique sequence of processes, even
       though the two  systems share processes.   Two  copies  of Form PS  must be
       completed, one for System 1-A and one for System 1-B.  Special attention must be
       paid to the instructions for systems that share processes in completing Form PS
       entries for influents, residuals, and capacities.

       In addition to the two systems described in Example 5.1, a third system exists at
       this site.  The clarification process (Pll) forms a single process system used to
       treat  the plant's  tank cleaning sludge.  Three copies of  Form PS must be
       completed, one for System 1-A, one for System 1-B, and one for System 1-C, again

       System 1 is a multiple process system, not sharing processes with any other system,
       used to treat nickle plating wastes.  System 2-A is a unique sequence of processes,
       C01 and Pll, used to treat  the general rinses.  System 2-B is a third unique
       sequence of processes-Gil, C01, and Pll-used to treat cyanide bearing wastes.
       Systems 2-A and 2-B share the precipitation and clarification processes.  Three
       copies of Form PS must be completed, one for System 1, one for System 2-A, and
       one for System 2-B.

ITEM-BY-ITEM INSTRUCTIONS

Section I

This section requests descriptive information on the processes, units, and status of one T/S/D/R
system existing or under construction at the site during 1987.

Box A:  Waste Treatment. Storage. Disposal or Recycling System Description
        Describe the processes in this system, the types of units used to carry out the processes,
        and the types of wastes managed.


        Examples:
          Sec. I  A. Waste treatment, storage, disposal or recycling system description
                  Instruction Page 57
                                Incineration of nonhazardous refuse and 0001 waste in two rotary kiln incinerators

                  Instruction Page 57
                                Solvent recovery and chemical treatment in tanks
Box B:  System Identification
        Box B  has two entries, a System Identification Number, and  a System Identification
        Letter. Both must be completed according to the instructions below.

        For a system that does not share units or processes with other systems, assign and enter a
        unique System  Identification Number (e.g., 1,  2, 3, etc.).  Enter "X" for the System
        Identification Letter,  indicating that  it does  not share units or processes with other
        systems.

        In Example 2.4 on page 49, the two stills that were operational comprise a system that is
        identified as System 1. If Form PS were being completed for this system, the number "1"
        would be entered  as the System Identification Number. Since  the system shares no units
        or processes with other systems, an "X" would be entered for the System Identification
        Letter, as shown below. (The third still, that was under construction, would be identified
        in Box B on a separate copy of Form PS as "2-X".)

        Example:
         B. System Identification
           Page 57       Number  Letter

                      I  I 1 1-lX I
         In another case, Example 4.2 on page 53, the three systems would be identified in Box B
         on separate copies of Form PS as "1-X", "2-X", and "3-X".

         Systems that share units or processes all must be assigned the same System Identification
         Number. Each of the systems is assigned  a unique System Identification Letter (any
         letter other than "X").

Section I (continued)
        In Example 5.3 on page 56, two of the systems share processes. These two systems would
        have the same System Identification Number, but their System Identification Letters
        would be unique. To complete Form PS for the system comprised of processes C01 and
        Pll, enter  "2" as the System Identification Number and "A" as the System Identification
        Letter,  as  shown below.  The site would complete a second copy of Form PS for the
        system  comprised of processes C41,  C01, and Pll, again enter "2"  as  the System
        Identification Number and "B" as the System  Identification Letter.  [The third system
        (C31, Pll) would be identified on another copy of Form PS as "1-X."]

        In another case, Example 5.2 on page 55, the three systems would be identified in Box B
        on separate copies of Form PS as "1-A", "1-B", and "1-C."

BoxC:  On-SiteT/S/D/RCodefs^
        Review the On-Site Treatment, Storage, Disposal, and  Recycling (T/S/D/R)  Codes
        beginning on page 48 of the Codebook.  Enter one code for each process in the system.
        Single process systems will be identified by only one T/S/D/R code,  even  when the
        system includes more than one unit.  Multiple process systems will always have two or
        more T/S/D/R codes-one for each process. Enter codes in the same sequence as the
        processes occur in the system. If you need space for additional codes, use the Comments
        section to continue the entry. Reference the comment by entering the  section number
        and box letter.  Do not use Disposal Codes D11-D23 in Box C. These codes are to be
        used only on Forms GM and WR to describe the management of individual hazardous
        wastes.

Box D:  Regulatory Status Code
        Review the codes listed below and enter the code that best describes the regulatory status
        of the system during 1987.

        Code         Regulatory Status

        A    	  System is RCRA regulated; all units in the system are subject to  RCRA
                      permitting standards
        B	  System is not RCRA regulated; no units are subject to RCRA permitting
                      standards
        C    	  System includes both RCRA regulated and RCRA exempt units  (This can
                      only occur in multiple process systems)
        D    	  Regulatory status of the system is unknown
        F     	  Other regulatory status, (Specify in Comments)

Box E:  Operational Status
        Box E has two entries, Operational Status "code" and "year".  Both must be completed
        according to the instructions below.
                                             58

Section I (continued)
        1.   Review the codes listed below and enter the code that best describes the operational
            status of the system at the end of 1987.

            Code         Operational Status

             A  	   Operational (Includes  routine  downtime  for  standard  operating
                           procedures, slack demand, and normal maintenance)
             B  	   Temporarily idle (e.g., nonroutine downtime such as major system
                           repair)
             C  	   Permanently closed (For  RCRA regulated  systems, permanently
                           closed means formal RCRA closure has taken place or hazardous
                           waste operations have ceased pending formal closure. For systems
                           that are exempt from  RCRA permit requirements, permanently
                           closed   means   hazardous  waste   operations   have  ceased
                           permanently.)
             D  	   Under construction (Includes operational testing, waiting period for
                           permit)
             F  	   Other operational status, (Specify in Comments)

        2.   Enter the year the system was permanently closed, if code "C" was entered as the
            Operational Status Code, or the year the system is expected to become operational,
            if code "D" was entered as the Operational Status Code.

Box F:  Number of Months that System was Operational During 1987
        Enter the number of months that the system was available for operation during 1987.
        The number  of  months should  include routine downtime,  but  exclude nonroutine
        downtime.  For example, a system that treated waste all year except for a one month
        routine maintenance downtime would be reported as  operational for all 12 months.
        Similarly, the system would be reported as available for operation for all 12 months even
        if it was only operated for 6 months due  to slack demand.  However,  if the system
        suffered unexpected mechanical problems that resulted in its being shut down for 3
        months, it would be reported as available for operation for only 9 months. A system that
        initiated operations in mid year  would be reported as available  for operation for 6
        months.

        For any new system under construction at the end of 1987, enter zero.

Box G:  Type and Number of Units
        Box G has two entries, unit "Type" and "Number." Both must be completed according to
        the instructions below. Review the codes listed below and enter the  codes that best
        describe the types of units  in the  system.  Enter the number of units of each type in the
        space provided.   If more than  two unit types are  included in the system, use the
        Comments  section to continue the entry and reference the comment  by entering the
        section number and box letter.

Section II

This section requests information on the quantity of influents, residuals and effluents associated
with the T/S/D/R System during 1987.

BoxA:  1987 Influent Quantity
       Box A has two entries, Total" and "RCRA."  Both must be completed according to the
       instructions below.  Report the quantity in a weight unit of measure,  converting if
       necessary.   Acceptable  units of measure are pounds,  short  tons (2,000 pounds),
       kilograms, and metric tonnes (1,000 kilograms).  Right justify the quantity entry. For any
       new system under construction at the end of 1987, enter zero.
                                             60

                                                                           FORM PS
Section II (continued)
       1.    Total:  Enter the total quantity of waste entering the system during 1987. Include all
            waste influents, both RCRA-hazardous and nonhazardous.  Exclude quantities of
            catalysts, reagents, and other non-waste materials that enter the system as part of a
            management process.

            For a single process system: If the system consists of a single unit, enter the quantity
            of waste influent to that unit. If the system includes more than one unit, sum the
            influent quantities across  units.   For example,  the  quantities of  spent solvents
            entering the three distillation units in Example  2.1 on page  47 would be added
            together and the total would be entered next to Total" in Box A.

            For a multiple process system:  Enter the total quantity of waste influent to the first
            process in the system.  In Example 4.1  on page 52, the quantity entered next to
            Total" in Box A would be the quantity of waste that entered the chromium reduction
            (C21) tank during 1987.

            For a system that shares units or processes with another system: Enter the total
            quantity of waste influent to the system,  excluding any influent  quantity that
            originates in another system with which a unit or process is shared. For example, in
            completing Form PS for System 1-B in  Example 5.1 on page 55, the quantity of
            general rinses flowing  into  the chemical  precipitation (C01) process  would  be
            entered next to Total" in  Box A.  The  quantity of contact cooling water flowing
            through System 1-A would  not be counted as  influent  to System 1-B,  since  it
            originates in a different system, (even  though it also flows into the first process of
            System 1-B).

       2.    RCRA:  In the space labelled "RCRA," enter the  amount of the "Total" influent to the
            system that was RCRA hazardous waste.

BoxB:  UOM
        Review the list  below and enter the UOM (unit of measure) Code for the quantity of
        influent reported in Box A.  All quantities in Sections II, III and IV of Form PS must be
        reported in the same weight unit of measure.

        NOTE: For any new system under construction at the end of 1987, enter the unit of
        measure code that will be used for reporting capacity quantities in Sections III and IV.

            Code         Operational Status

             P  	   Pounds
             T  	   Short tons (2,000 pounds)
             K  	   Kilograms
             M  	   Metric tonnes (1,000 kilograms)

Box C:  1987 Solid/Sludge Residual Quantity
        Box C  has two entries, Total" and "RCRA."  Both must be completed according to the
        instructions below.  Report the quantities in the same weight unit of measure you entered
        in Box  B. Right justify the quantity entry. For any new system under construction  at the
        end of  1987, enter zero.

       1.    Total:  In the space labelled Total," enter the total quantity of waste that exited the
            system  as a solid/sludge residual during  1987.  Include non-hazardous and RCRA
            hazardous wastes. Do not include recovered materials that are not wastes.

Section II (continued)
            For a system that does not share units or processes with another system: Enter the
            sum of the solid and sludge residual from all units in the system. For example, the
            quantities of treatment sludges subsequently sent off site for disposal from the two
            settling process units (Pll) in Example 2.2 on page 48 would be added together and
            entered next to Total" in Box C.  Similarly, in Example 4.1 on page 52, the sludge
            from the clarification process unit (Pll) would be added to the dredged sludge from
            incidental settling in the equalization (P01) surface impoundment and entered next
            to Total" in Box C.

            For a system that shares units or processes with another system: Enter the quantity
            of solid and sludge residuals from all the units in the system, excluding any quantities
            resulting from the use of units by another system.  For  example, in completing
            Form PS for System 1-B in Example 5.1 on page 55, the quantity of treatment sludge
            resulting from clarification (Pll) of the general rinses would be  entered next to
            Total" in Box C.  Note that the quantity entered in Box C will be less than the total
            quantity of sludge removed from  the  clarification  process.  Since part of the
            treatment sludge results  from management of the contact cooling water flowing
            through System 1-A, the  total quantity of sludge must be proportionately allocated
            between the two systems.  The portion of the total quantity of sludge estimated to be
            associated with clarification of the general rinses would be  reported on the copy of
            Form  PS for System 1-B, while the remaining  part of the  total sludge quantity
            estimated to be associated with management of contact cooling water in System 1-A,
            would be reported on a separate copy of Form PS.

       2.    RCRA: In the space labelled "RCRA," enter the amount of the Total" solid/sludge
            residual quantity that was RCRA hazardous waste.


BoxD:  1987 Aqueous Effluent Quantity
        Box D has two entries, Total" and "RCRA."  Both must be completed  according to the
        instructions below. Report the quantities in the same weight unit of measure you entered
        in Box B. Right justify the quantity entry. For any new system under construction at the
        end of 1987, enter zero.

       1.    Total: In the space labelled Total," enter the total quantity of aqueous waste that
            exited the system during 1987. Include non-hazardous and RCRA hazardous wastes.
            Do not include recovered materials that are not wastes.

            For a system that does not share units or processes with another system: Enter the
            sum of the aqueous effluents  from all units in the system.  For example, the
            quantities of  aqueous effluents discharged  under NPDES permits  from the two
            settling process units (Pll) in Example 2.2 on page 48 would be added together and
            entered next to Total" in Box D.

            For a system that shares units or processes with another system: Enter the quantity
            of aqueous effluents from all units in the system, excluding any quantities resulting
            from the use of units by another system. For example, in completing Form PS for
            System 1-B in Example 5.1 on page 55, the quantity of aqueous effluent discharged
            under NPDES permits from clarification (Pll)  of  the general rinses would be
            entered next to Total" in Box D.  Note that the quantity entered in Box D will be
            less than the total quantify of aqueous effluent exiting the clarification process.
            Since part of the aqueous effluent results from management of the contact cooling

Section II (continued)
            water flowing through  System 1-A, the total quantity must be  proportionately
            allocated between the two systems. The portion of the total quantity of aqueous
            effluent estimated to be associated with clarification of the general rinses would be
            reported on the copy of Form PS for System 1-B, while the remaining part of the
            total effluent quantity,  estimated  to be  associated with management of contact
            cooling water in System 1-A, would be reported on a separate copy of Form PS.

       2.    RCRA:  In the space labelled "RCRA," enter the  amount of the  "Total" aqueous
            effluent quantity that was RCRA hazardous waste.
Section III

This section requests information on the capacity and commercial availability of the system.

Box A:  Maximum Capacity
        Enter the maximum capacity for the system in Box A. Maximum capacity is not limited
        by regulatory, permitting, operational, marketing, or any other non-engineering design
        constraints. Use the same weight unit of measure reported in Section II, Box B. For any
        new system under construction at the end of 1987, enter the expected maximum capacity
        for the type of waste the system will manage once it becomes operational.  Right justify
        the quantity entry.  Maximum capacity is defined differently, depending on the type of
        T/S/D/R processes that comprise the system:

       1.    Storage-only system:  A system with a single  On-site T/S/D/R code reported in
            Section I, Box C, indicating storage (SOI - S99).

            For a storage-only system, maximum capacity is defined as the maximum quantity of
            hazardous and  non-hazardous waste that could be stored in the system at one time.
            Assume the waste is of the same type as that stored in the system during 1987.  If the
            system includes multiple units, sum the maximum quantities across all units in the
            system.

       2.    Landfill system (including any other systems to be closed as landfills): A system with
            a single On-site  T/S/D/R code  reported in Section  I, Box C, indicating landfill
            (D02), surface impoundment to be closed as landfill (DOS), or any other disposal
            processes (D99) to be closed as landfill.

            For a landfill system, maximum capacity is defined as the quantity of hazardous and
            non-hazardous waste that could  enter the system  over  its remaining lifetime.
            Exclude quantities of non-waste materials used for daily and final cover. Assume the
            waste is of the same type as that disposed in the system during 1987.  If the system
            includes multiple units, sum the maximum quantities across all units in the system.

       3.    Flow system: Any system not included above.  One or more of the following On-site
            T/S/D/R codes  must be reported in Section I,  Box C:  Recovery/Reuse (R01 -
            R99), Soh'dification/Stabilization  (G01  - G99),  Incineration/Thermal Treatment
            (F01 - F99), Physical Treatment (P01 -  P99), Chemical Treatment (C01 - C99),
            Biological Treatment (Bll -  B99), Other Treatment (Q99), or any Disposal (D01,
            DOS, D04, D99) not included under landfill systems.

                                                                           FORM PS
Section III (continued)
            For a flow system, maximum capacity is defined as the total quantity of hazardous
            and non-hazardous waste that could enter the system during an eight hour period,
            and eventually be processed through the system. Assume the waste is of the same
            type as that managed in the system during 1987. Note the following special cases:

            For a flow system that is a single process system: If the system includes more than
            one unit, sum the maximum capacities across all units in the system.

            For a flow system that shares units or processes  with another system:  For the
            purpose of determining maximum system capacity, assume that 100% of the capacity
            of shared units or processes is available to this system.  For example, in completing
            Form PS for the site illustrated in Example 5.1 on page 55, the maximum capacity for
            System  1-A  would be  reported assuming that  100% of  the  capacity  of the
            precipitation  (C01) and clarification (Pll)  processes is  available for treating the
            contact cooling water (i.e., no general rinses are allowed to enter System 1-B). The
            maximum  capacity of System 1-B would be reported on a second copy of Form PS,
            assuming  that 100%  of  the  precipitation  and clarification  processes  is  instead
            available for treating the general rinses.

Box B:  Operational Capacity
        Enter the operational capacity for the system in Box B, using the same weight unit of
        measure you entered in Section II, Box B. Right justify the quantity entry.  Operational
        capacity is only applicable for Flow systems, as defined  for Box A above. For storage-
        only or landfill systems, enter "NA" in Box  B.  For any new flow system under
        construction at the end of 1987, enter the operational capacity for the type of waste the
        system will handle once it becomes operational.

        Operational capacity refers to the total amount of hazardous and non-hazardous waste
        that could have entered and been processed through the system during 1987, assuming
        constraints associated with normal operating conditions.  Constraints associated with
        normal operating conditions are considered to include typical waste mixtures, operating
        schedules, patterns of shared use of units or processes, routine maintenance downtime,
        permit limits, and regulatory or other non-engineering design constraints. Assume 1987
        conditions were normal unless there were specific variations in these or related factors
        that affected system operations. Note the following special cases:

        For a flow system that is a single process system: If the system includes more than one
        unit, sum the operational capacities across all units in the system.

        For a flow system that shares units or processes with another system:  The operational
        capacity entered should reflect any limitations in capacity caused by shared use of units
        or processes by other systems. For example, consider completing Form PS for System 1-
        B in Example  5.1 on page 55.  The operating capacity of this system  is limited by the
        shared use, with System 1-A, of its two processes (C01 and Pll). The operating capacity
        reported in Box B for System 1-B must reflect this shared use. If the maximum annual
        capacity of System 1-B were 100,000 tons, but 60,000 tons of this capacity were used in
        the treatment of the contact cooling water in System 1-A, only 40,000 tons of operational
        capacity would remain to treat the general rinses in System 1-B. You would enter 40,000
        tons in Box B on the copy of Form PS for System 1-B. On another copy of Form PS for
        System 1-A, you would enter 60,000 tons in Box B.
