EMERGENCY PERMIT FOR TREATMENT OF HAZARDOUS WASTE, JANSSEN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, LLC, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Project Location
The hazardous waste items are expired and being stored at Janssen located at 3210 Merryfield Row. DTSC has determined as a safety precaution to prevent an accident or severe injury, an Emergency Permit should be issued to chemically stabilize the hazardous waste prior to transportation off-site by Clean Harbors Environmental Services (CHES).
The treatment of the hazardous wastes involves the addition of solution to the containers in a controlled manner to reduce the reactive or ignitable characteristics of the chemicals.
Treatment will take place within a designated exclusion zone. The designated exclusion zone will be a 50-ft. radius, well ventilated area. Only Reactive Material Technicians from CHES will be allowed in the exclusion zone. Movement, preparation, and treatment of the items will be in accordance with established standards. Within 10 business days of the expiration of this permit, Janssen will submit a final report, signed in accordance with Title 22, California Code of Regulations section 66270.11 (d). The report shall include a certification that the treatment area has been cleared of all residual hazardous waste generated from this emergency treatment and all generated waste has been properly managed.
