§ 298.30. Waste oil collection centers.

 (a)  Applicability. This section applies to owners or operators of waste oil collection centers. A waste oil collection center is any site or facility that accepts/aggregates and stores waste oil collected from waste oil generators regulated under Subchapter C (relating to waste oil generators) who bring waste oil to the collection center in shipments of no more than 55 gallons under §  298.24(a) (relating to offsite shipments). Waste oil collection centers may also accept waste oil and oil filters from household do-it-yourselfers.

 (b)  Permit-by-rule for waste oil collection centers. For the operation of a waste oil collection center to be deemed to have a permit-by-rule, the owner or operator of a waste oil collection center shall do the following:

   (1)  Be a state inspection facility, oil retailer, retail service station, a facility owned or operated by a municipality, municipal authority, or state agency, or a facility owned or operated by a nonprofit organization.

   (2)  Not blend oil for offsite reuse.

   (3)  Comply with the generator standards in Subchapter C.

   (4)  Maintain on the premises waste oil collection tanks that are properly sheltered and protected to prevent spillage, seepage or discharge of the waste oil into the water, land and air of this Commonwealth and of sufficient size to handle returns of waste oil.

   (5)  Have collection facilities for the safe and proper disposal of waste oil containers within a very close proximity to the collection tanks.

   (6)  Not accept water, antifreeze, other residual or hazardous wastes or other contaminants.

   (7)  Design, construct and operate the facility in a manner to ensure that any hazardous waste generated at the facility is not mixed with the waste oil being collected at the facility.

   (8)  Have a procedure for ensuring that items in paragraph (6) are not collected at the facility and that if waste oil collected at the facility contains more than 1,000 parts per million total halogens it is due to the household do-it yourselfer waste oil collected by the facility.

§ 298.31. Waste oil aggregation points owned by the generator.

 (a)  Applicability. This section applies to owners or operators of all waste oil aggregation points. A waste oil aggregation point is any site or facility that accepts, aggregates or stores waste oil collected only from other waste oil generation points owned or operated by the owner or operator of the aggregation point, from which waste oil is transported to the aggregation point in shipments of no more than 55 gallons under §  298.24(b) (relating to offsite shipments). Waste oil aggregation points may also accept waste oil from household do-it-yourselfers.

 (b)  Permit-by-rule for waste oil aggregation points. The owner or operator of an aggregation point may operate the aggregation point under a permit-by-rule. The Department may require the owner or operator of an aggregation point operated under a permit-by-rule to apply for and obtain a permit or take other appropriate action, when the generator is not in compliance with the requirements for the permit-by-rule or is conducting an activity that harms or presents a threat of harm to the health, safety or welfare of the people or the environment of this Commonwealth. For the operation of a waste oil aggregation point to be authorized by a permit-by-rule, the owner or operator shall:

   (1)  Comply with the generator standards in Subchapter C (relating to waste oil generators).

   (2)  Maintain on the premises waste oil collection tanks that are properly sheltered and protected to prevent spillage, seepage or discharge of the waste oil into the water, land and air of this Commonwealth and of sufficient size to handle returns of waste oil.

   (3)  Have within a very close proximity to the collection tanks, collection facilities for the safe and proper disposal of waste oil containers.

   (4)  Not accept water, antifreeze, other residual or hazardous wastes or other contaminants.

   (5)  Submit a written notice to the Department that includes the name, address and the telephone number of the facility, the individual responsible for operating the facility and a brief description of the facility.
