1.1 This guide covers a disposal of wastes of unbound respirable silicon carbide (SiC) whiskers and wastes containing 1.0 % by weight or greater of unbound respirable silicon carbide whiskers which could become airborne during disposal operations or uncontrolled releases of materials during disposal operations.
1.2 If the waste stream contains or is mixed with other constituents that are considered hazardous waste by area federal, state, local, or other regulations, the disposal requirements may be more stringent or require different handling precautions, or both, than those recommended in this guide. Information specific to any hazardous constituents should be included in each generator's characterization of the waste so that it can be properly classified and managed.
1.3 Application of these recommendations must be in accordance with federal, state, local, or other solid waste regulations.
1.4 Applicable information may be obtained from the Material Safety Data Sheet(s) (MSDS) for the waste stream constituent(s).
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
