Guide 7, Disposal of Debris
You are purchasing a downloadable pdf of this Standard.
This guide provides information regarding handling, testing, and disposal of solid debris generated during preparation of surfaces previously painted with lead-containing paint.
This guide is based on federal regulations only. States or other local jurisdictions may have requirements that are stricter, such as requiring additional analytical procedures or regulating other metals. Non-hazardous waste containing lead is also regulated in some states.
This guide does not cover removal of the coating from the structure or containment of the debris. These activities are described in SSPC-Guide 6.
While this guide is written primarily with reference to removing lead-based paints, other elements may also cause the debris to be classified as a hazardous waste.
