Subpart X (Miscellaneous Units)

RCRA miscellaneous units are a unique category of hazardous waste management units, covered under 40 CFR Part 264, Subpart X. Units covered under Subpart X do not fit neatly within the definition of the more typical waste management units described in Part 264 (containers, tanks, incinerators, etc.). To be permitted, Subpart X units must meet environmental performance standards, while other Part 264 units must meet specific technology standards.
