DIVISION 100
HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT
Hazardous Waste Management System: General

340-100-0001
Purpose and Scope
(1) The Department of Environmental
Quality finds that increasing quantities of hazardous waste are being generated
in Oregon. That waste, without adequate safeguards, can create conditions that threaten
public health and the environment. It is therefore in the public interest to establish
a comprehensive program to provide for safely managing this waste.
(2) The purpose of the management
program in OAR chapter 340 divisions 100 to 110, 120, 124 and 142 is to control
hazardous waste from the time of generation through transportation, storage, treatment
and disposal. Toxics use reduction, hazardous waste reduction, hazardous waste minimization,
beneficial use, recycling and treatment are preferred over land disposal. To this
end, the Department intends to minimize the number of disposal sites and to tightly
control their operation.
(3) OAR chapter 340, divisions
100 to 106, 109, 111, 113, 120, 124 and 142 incorporate by reference, hazardous
waste management regulations of the federal program, included in 40 C.F.R. Parts
260 to 268, 270, 273 and Subpart A and Subpart B of Part 124, into Oregon Administrative
Rules. Therefore, a person must consult these parts of 40 C.F.R. in addition to
OAR chapter 340, divisions 100 to 106, 109, 111, 113, 120, 124 and 142, to determine
all applicable hazardous waste management requirements.
(4) A secondary purpose of
this program is to obtain EPA Final Authorization to manage hazardous waste in Oregon
in lieu of the federal program.

Public Disclosure and Confidentiality
(1) The provisions of this rule replace
the provisions of 40 C.F.R. § 260.2.
(2) All records, reports,
and information submitted pursuant to the hazardous waste statutes, rules, and regulations
are open for public inspection and copying except as provided in sections (3) to
(7) of this rule. Provided however, that nothing in this rule is intended to alter
any exemption from public disclosure or public inspection provided by any provision
of ORS Chapter 192 or other Oregon law.
(3)(a) A person may claim
the submitted records, reports, or information are a trade secret in accordance
with ORS 192.410 through 192.505 and 466.090.
(b) The Department will designate
a Document Control Officer for the purpose of receiving, managing, and securing
confidential information. The Document Control Officer will secure the following
information:
(A) Claimed trade secret
information until the claim is withdrawn by the submitter, determined not to be
confidential under section (6) of this rule, or invalidated;
(B) Information determined
to be trade secret; and
(C) Any other information
determined by court order or other process to be confidential.
(c) All Uniform Hazardous
Waste Manifest information submitted on any required report under the hazardous
waste statutes, rules, and regulations is publicly available and is not subject
to trade secret confidentiality claims.
(d) The Department will deny
confidentiality claims for the name and address of any permit applicant or permittee.
(4) The following procedures
shall be followed when a claim of trade secret is made:
(a) A person claiming trade
secret must clearly mark each individual page of any submission that contains the
claimed trade secret information as "trade secret," "confidential," "confidential
business information," or the equivalent. If no claim by appropriate marking is
made at the time of submission, the submitter may not afterwards make a claim of
trade secret.
(b) A late submission of
the trade secret substantiation will invalidate the trade secret claim. Written
substantiation in accordance with paragraph (4)(d) of this rule:
(A) Must accompany any information
submitted pursuant to OAR 340-102-0012, 340-102-0041, 340-104-0075, 340-105-0010,
340-105-0013, 340-105-0014, 340-105-0020, 340-105-0021, 40 C.F.R. §§262.12,
264.11, 265.11 or 270.42, or
(B) For all other information
submitted to the Department, written substantiation must be provided pursuant to
subsection 5 of this rule.
(c) Trade secret information
must meet the following criteria:
(A) Not the subject of a
patent;
(B) Only known to a limited
number of individuals within an organization;
(C) Used in a business which
the organization conducts;
(D) Of potential or actual
commercial value; and
(E) Capable of providing
the user with a business advantage over competitors not having the information.
(d) Written substantiation
of trade secret claims shall address the following:
(A) Identify which portions
of information are claimed trade secret;
(B) Identify how long confidential
treatment is desired for this information;
(C) Identify any pertinent
patent information;
(D) Describe to what extent
the information has been disclosed to others, who knows about the information, and
what measures have been taken to guard against undesired disclosure of the information
to others;
(E) Describe the nature of
the use of the information in business;
(F) Describe why the information
is considered to be commercially valuable;
(G) Describe how the information
provides a business advantage over competitors;
(H) If any of the information
has been provided to other government agencies, identify which one(s);
(I) Include any other information
that supports a claim of trade secret.
(e) The person must submit
a public version of the document containing the claimed trade secret information
at the time the trade secret substantiation is required as provided in subsection
(4)(c)(B)(b)(A) and subsection (5)(a) of this rule.
(5) Written trade secret
substantiation as required under subsection (4)(b)(B) and a public version of the
information as required by subsection (4)(e) shall be provided within 15 working
days of receipt of any Department request for trade secret substantiation or the
public version of the information. The Department may extend the time, either at
the Department's initiative or the claimant's request, up to an additional 30 consecutive
days in order to provide the substantiation and public version, if the complexity
or volume of the claimed trade secret information is such that additional time is
required for the claimant to complete the response. The Department shall request
the written trade secret substantiation or the public information version if:
(a) A public records request
is received which would reasonably include the information, if the information were
not declared as trade secret, or
(b) It is likely that the
Department eventually will be requested to disclose the information at some future
time and thus the Department will have to determine whether the information is entitled
to trade secret confidentiality. This includes information that relates to any permit,
corrective action, or potential violation information.
(6) When evaluating a trade
secret claim, the Department shall review all information in its possession relating
to the trade secret claim to determine whether the trade secret claim meets the
requirements for trade secret as specified in paragraphs (4)(c) and (4)(d) of this
rule. The Department shall provide written notification of any final trade secret
decision and the reason for it to the person submitting the trade secret claim within
10 working days of the decision date.
(a) If the Department or
the Attorney General determines that the information meets the requirements for
trade secret, the information shall be maintained as confidential.
(b) If the Department determines
that the information does not meet the requirements for trade secret, the Department
shall request a review by the Attorney General. If the Attorney General determines
that the information does not meet the requirements for trade secret, the Department
may make the information available to the public no sooner than 5 working days after
the date the Department mails notification to the person submitting the trade secret
claim.
(c) A person claiming information
as trade secret may request the Department to make a trade secret determination.
The person must submit the written substantiation in accordance with paragraph (4)(d)
of this rule and the public version in accordance with paragraph (4)(e) of this
rule. The Department shall make the determination within 30 days after receiving
the request, written substantiation, and the public version.
(7) Records, reports, and
information submitted under to these rules shall be made available to the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) upon request. If the records, reports, or information has
been submitted under a claim of confidentiality, the state shall make that claim
of confidentiality to EPA for the requested records, reports or information. The
federal agency shall treat the records, reports or information that is subject to
the confidentiality claim as confidential in accordance with applicable federal
law.
NOTE: It is suggested that claims of
trade secret be restricted to that information considered absolutely necessary and
that such information be clearly separated from the remainder of the submission.

waste management unit is subject to a uniform set of management practices (e.g.,
one liner and leachate collection and removal system). The provisions in the OAR
340, Division 104 regulations (principally the technical standards in Subparts K–N
of 40 CFR Part 264) establish requirements that a person subject to these rules
must implement on a unit-by-unit basis.

container is greater than 110 gallons in size; or
(iv) If the material is a
compressed gas, the pressure in the container is atmospheric.
(e) "Household Use" means
use by the home or dwelling owner in or around households (including single and
multiple residences, hotels and motels).

or application of pesticides, including but not limited to aircraft, ground spraying
equipment, hoppers, tanks, booms and hoses.
(j) "Pesticide Residue" is
a waste that is generated from pesticide operations and pesticide management, such
as from pesticide use (except household use), manufacturing, repackaging, formulation,
bulking and mixing, and spills.
(A) Pesticide residue includes,
but is not limited to, unused commercial pesticides, tank or container bottoms or
sludges, pesticide spray mixture, container rinsings and pesticide equipment washings,
and substances generated from pesticide treatment, recycling, disposal, and rinsing
spray and pesticide equipment.
