Pollution control waste.
"Pollution control waste"
means any liquid, solid, semi-solid or gaseous waste generated as a direct
or indirect result of the removal of contaminants from the air,
water or land, and which pose a present or potential threat
to human health or to the environment or with inherent
properties which make the disposal of such waste in a landfill
difficult to manage by normal means. "Pollution control waste"
includes but is not limited to water and wastewater treatment
plant sludges, baghouse dusts, landfill waste, scrubber sludges
and chemical spill cleanings.
