Document Description
The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), pursuant to authority granted under Chapter 6.5, Cal. Code Regs., Tit. 22, Section 66270.61 has issued an Emergency Permit to CSUF to treat highly reactive and/or ignitable hazardous waste by chemical stabilization. It has been determined that these items are or may be highly reactive and/or ignitable and must be stabilized prior to being transported offsite. The items are currently being stored inside a laboratory at CSUF, located in Fullerton, California. Because CSUF does not have a permit for the treatment of the hazardous waste, DTSC has determined, as a safety precaution to prevent an accident or severe injury, that an Emergency Permit should be issued to chemically stabilize the hazardous waste priot to transportation off site by Clean Harbors Environmental Services (CHES). The treatment of the hazardous waste involves the addition of a solvent or water to containers in order to reduce the reactive or ignitable characteristics of the chemicals.
