SW List & Law



Note: The rule of the thumb; wastes need to be segregated by prioritizing the 3R, that is in view of extending its life-cycle as much as possible before rendering it useless! This list may only be applicable to industrial, services and commercial sectors, but, at home we are now subscribing to the new law - Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act, 2007 (Act 672). Remember, 'our wastes' were once our treasured environmental resource which have undergone 'humanized' transformation into products for our life-styles. However, by virtue of their 'changed' properties and characteristics as 'products' they are not readily acceptable to the environment. The environment can't assimilate their current form. Their entry into the environment simply means pollution. So, urge the authorities to be more pro-active in facilitating the public to comply to this new law - not just carry the whip to command and control! I've already explained this grievance in my page named 'My Platform'.  Anyway, I hope this list would simplify lives of many who may need to justify their SW classification. Cheerio.



The Scheduled Waste List
based from the FIRST SCHEDULE (Regulation 2) of The Environmental Quality (Scheduled Waste) Regulations, 2005 - a subsidiary regulation of the Environmental Quality Act, 1974.

A summarized process flow of a nickel 
electroplating process commonly found in 
the surface treatment of metals such as 
exhaust-pipes. An array of SW which are 
mostly hazardous if not toxic are generated. 
WWTP stands for Waste Water Treatment 
Plant where treated effluent are discharged 
based on their respective limits set by the
law. Nonetheless, sludge, in this case in the 
form of 'filter-cake' released from the sludge 
filter press generates SW 204 or SW 412

 Picture: Sludge cake originating from the Filter Press De-watering Equipment that contain an array of Heavy Metals which were coagulated and settled as sludge in an effluent treatment plant. Coded as SW 204 as it contains copper and a few other metals. They are being sent to a licensed Off-Site Recovery Facility nearby that is able to extract Copper and as a re-generated raw material for a niche market in the region. Its export to the a buyer in another country is subscribing to the BASEL Convention, therefore, a plethora of protocols between the two parties and their respective nations to comply with prior its shipment
SW 3               Wastes containing principally organic constituents which may contain 
                       metals and inorganic materials

They are probably classified as SW 305 or 306 depending on its justified composition.

SW 305            Spent lubricating oil
SW 306            Spent hydraulic oil
SW 307            Spent mineral oil-water emulsion

SW 326            Waste of organic phosphorus compound
SW 327            Waste of thermal fluids (heat transfer) such as ethylene glycol
Picture: Used and empty plastic chemical containers which still has a small amount of its contents' residues. They are probably classified as SW 409 if its residual content is not removable. This classification still applies if they were containers of different kinds of chemicals. However, it was found that some contractors insisted on using codes such as SW421 and SW422 in order to 'simplify matters' in favour of their license specifications.
SW 4                Wastes which may contain either inorganic or organic constituents

                    Picture: These are commonly found in almost all  industrial and services activities. They may consist of contaminants like lube oil, hydraulic oils, paint, thinner, solvents, varnish, coolants, sludge, pigments, etc. that are rendered as Scheduled Waste (SW). They are classified as SW 410. As an environmental-friendly practice, they are commonly 'disposed' to a licensed off-site recyclers who technically washes these fabric rags and gloves to a cleaner state. Some are being sold as used rags and gloves while others are returned to their respective waste generators who sent them. However, another environmental burden splashes out of these recyclers' operations i.e. industrial effluent. In most legal circumstances, since their waste wash waters consists of heavy metals or trace metals like Hg, Cd, Cr6+, As, CN, Pb, Cr3+, Mn, Ni and Sn, where their absence is a doubt by experience, are rendered as Industrial Effluent. Hence, these recycling facilities may need to treat their wash waters as they are subscribing to the Environmental Quality (Industrial Effluent) Regulations, 2009. And, chemical treatment costs is expensive. Further, they may generate SW sludge from their Industrial Effluent Treatment's sludge de-watering equipment.  
SW 410            Rags, plastics, papers or filters contaminated with scheduled wastes. 
SW 411            Spent activated carbon excluding carbon from the treatment of potable water 
                        and processes of the food industry and vitamin production
SW 412            Sludges containing cyanide
SW 413            Spent salt containing cyanide
SW 414            Spent aqueous alkaline solution containing cyanide. 
SW 415            Spent quenching oils containing cyanides
SW 416            Sludges of inks, paints, pigments, lacquer, dye or varnish
Picture (above left): This is a bizarre and antiquated specialized ink dispensing system after its final mixing in an ink formulation factory. It produces highly customized ink from high-end ink pigments and refined specification organic solvents. The red pipes and hoses aren't red but tainted with ink leaks! Its cleaning generates organic solvent contaminated with inks - SW 418. These ink-solvent waste flows into receiving drains on the floor and are channelled into an effluent treatment system. Picture (above right): These are used pigments and ink containers probably classified and SW 409, 416, 417 or 421 (depending on its composition and toxicity or convenience according to their respective handlers!) that still contains residues of their original content which are stored prior disposal. They are being disposed to an Off-site Prescribed Premise licensed to incinerate as means of their disposal.

                        pesticides, herbicides or biocides
SW 427            Mineral sludges including calcium hydroxide sludges, phosphating sludges, 
                        calcium sulphite sludges and carbonates sludges
SW 428            Wastes from wood preserving operation using inorganic salts containing 
                        copper, chromium or arsenic of fluoride compounds or using compound 
                        containing chlorinated phenol or creosote
SW 429            Chemicals that are discarded or off-specification
SW 430            Obsolete laboratory chemicals
SW 431            Waste from manufacturing or processing or use of explosives. 
SW 432            Waste containing, consisting of or contaminated with, peroxides

Picture: It seems that solvent recovery might be a popular resort for cost savings in this region very soon. At the time of this write-up, external recovery centres are still favoured options. On-site recovery of SW is positively stipulated by the law already. Incentives to purchase or develop this technology within the country should alleviate the impact on costs for companies; and resource depletion for the environment.

SW 5                Other wastes

SW 501            Any residues from treatment or recovery of scheduled wastes
(Author: Khalid Mohd Ariff, 19th March 2012, 26th RabiulAkhir 1433.)

What the law says ...


Notification of the generation of scheduled wastes

Regulation 3.         

(1)        Every waste generator shall, within 30 days from the date of generation of scheduled wastes, notify the Director General of the new categories and quantities of scheduled wastes which are generated. 
(2)        The notification given under subregulation (1) shall include the information provided in the Second Schedule.

Disposal of scheduled wastes

Regulation 4.         
(1)        Scheduled wastes shall be disposed of at prescribed premises only. 
(2)        Scheduled wastes shall, as far as is practicable, be rendered innocuous prior to disposal.

Treatment of scheduled wastes

Regulation 5.         

(1)        Scheduled wastes shall be treated at prescribed premises or at on‑site treatment facilities only. 
(2)        Residuals from treatment of scheduled wastes shall be treated or disposed of at prescribed premises.


Recovery of material or product from scheduled wastes

Regulation 6.         

(1)      Recovery of material or product from scheduled wastes shall be done at prescribed premises or at on-site recovery facilities. 
(2)        Residuals from recovery of material or product from scheduled wastes shall be treated or disposed of at prescribed premises.
Discussion: Start to 'reuse-reclaim-recycle' on-site!
Waste Generators: Does this law stipulate or state anywhere that a waste generator needs to apply for an 'on-site treatment or recovery or recycling' license? 
Application for special management of scheduled wastes

Regulation 7.         

(1)        A waste generator may apply to the Director General in writing to have the scheduled wastes generated from their particular facility or process excluded from being treated, disposed of or recovered in premises or facilities other than at the prescribed premises or on-site treatment or recovery facilities.

(2)       An application under subregulation (1) shall be submitted to the Director General in accordance with the guidelines for special management of scheduled wastes as prescribed by the Director General and shall be accompanied by fee of three hundred ringgit and shall not be refunded.
(3)        If the Director General is satisfied with the application made under subregulation (1), the Director General may grant a written approval either with or without conditions.



Responsibility of waste generator

Regulation 8.         

(1)        Every waste generator shall ensure that scheduled wastes generated by him are properly stored, treated on-site, recovered on-site for material or product from such scheduled wastes or delivered to and received at prescribed premises for treatment, disposal or recovery of material or product from scheduled wastes.

(2)        Every waste generator shall ensure that scheduled wastes that are subjected to movement or transfer be packaged, labelled and transported in accordance with the guidelines prescribed by the Director General.
Some uses signboard


Storage of scheduled wastes

Regulation 9.         

(1)          Scheduled wastes shall be stored in containers which are compatible with the scheduled wastes to be stored, durable and which are able to prevent spillage or leakage of the scheduled wastes into the environment.

(2)          Incompatible scheduled wastes shall be stored in separate containers, and such containers shall be placed in separate secondary containment areas. 
A poor example

(3)          Containers containing scheduled wastes shall always be closed during storage except when it is necessary to add or remove the scheduled wastes.

(4)          Areas for the storage of the containers shall be designed, constructed and maintained adequately in accordance with the guidelines prescribed by the Director General to prevent spillage or leakage of scheduled wastes into the environment. 
Perimeter drain

(5)          Any person may store scheduled wastes generated by him for 180 days or less after its generation provided that

            (a)        the quantity of scheduled wastes accumulated on site shall not exceed 20 metric tones; and
            (b)        the Director General may at any time, direct the waste generator to send any scheduled wastes for treatment, disposal or recovery of material or product from the scheduled wastes up to such  quantity as he deems necessary.  
Better example
(6)        A waste generator may apply to the Director General in writing to store more than 20 metric tonnes of scheduled wastes.
(7)        If the Director General is satisfied with the application made under subregulation (6), the Director General may grant a written approval either with or without conditions. 
Confined and Contained


Labelling of scheduled wastes

Regulation 10.       

(1)        The date when the scheduled wastes are first generated, name, address and telephone number of the waste generator shall be clearly labelled on the containers that are used to store the scheduled wastes. 

(2)        Containers of scheduled wastes shall be clearly labelled in accordance with the types applicable to them as specified in the Third Schedule and marked with the scheduled waste code as specified in the First Schedule for identification and warning purposes.
(3)        No person is allowed to alter the markings and labels mentioned in subregulations (1) and (2).

GUIDELINES FOR THE APPLICATION OF SPECIAL MANAGEMENT OF SCHEDULED WASTE

The Malaysian Department of Environment (DOE) has classified certain wastes and defined them as scheduled wastes as listed in the First Schedule of the Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulations, 2005. In some cases, however, some of these scheduled wastes does not exhibit any hazardous characteristic and does not pose any potential hazard either to human health or to the environment. Therefore, this legislation provides a provision for the application for the special management of schedule waste, for declassification. One’s waste may be raw materials for others.

APPLICATION FOR SPECIAL MANAGEMENT OF SCHEDULED WASTE

1.            Under Regulations 7 of the Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulations, 2005, a generator of scheduled wastes may apply to the Director General of Environmental Quality to exclude a specific scheduled waste from scheduled waste regulations.

2.            The general requirements for the application are described in this guideline.

3.            Any scheduled waste generator  may manage it’s waste as non scheduled wastes after the Director General of Environmental Quality grants a written approval or exclusion.

APPLICATION FOR  INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS

4.            In order for the waste to be excluded from the requirements scheduled waste regulations requirement, scheduled waste generators must demonstrate that the waste :-

i)          Does not exhibit any of the hazardous wastes characteristic - ignitability, reactivity, corrosivity and toxicity , as defined in Appendix 1; 

ii)         Has been proven by scientific studies and tests on its toxicity and carcinogenic and does not have hazard effects on human or other life forms as specified in Appendix 2, which amounted to concentration which is equal to, or exceeds the percentage limits (percentage weights) specified in Appendix 3 . A generator/ applicant shall submit  reports, records or journals in order to prove that the waste does not exhibit any of the elements mentioned; and

iii)        It is not capable of posing potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported or disposed of, or otherwise managed.

7.         The applicant shall provide the information as required in AS WM 1/4 form together with processing fee of RM 300.00 which is not refundable  (Appendix 4).

Appendix 1
CHARACTERISTIC OF HAZARDOUS WASTE

It is the responsibility of waste generator to determine whether his waste exhibits one or more of these characteristics.

The following are the scheduled wastes and thus subject to determination as whether they exhibit hazardous and/or toxic characteristics:

-           Air pollution control residues, including dusts, ashes, carbon and other reagents and sludges.
-           Dust, powder, ash, slag and dross from metals processing, including smelting and soldering.
-           Contaminated soil and water deriving from construction activities, such as excavation, dredging

Characteristic of corrosivity.

A waste exhibits the characteristic of corrosivity if a representative sample of the waste has either of the following properties:

(2)       It has a liquid component and corrodes steel (SAE 1020) at a rate greater than 6.35 mm (0.250 inch) per year at a test temperature of 55oC (130oF).  

Characteristic of ignitability.

A waste exhibits the characteristic of ignitability if a representative sample of the waste has any of the following properties:

(1)       It is a liquid, other than an aqueous solution containing less than 24 percent alcohol by volume and has flash point less than 60oC (140oF), as determined by a Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Tester or a Setaflash Closed Cup Tester.

(2)       It is not a liquid and is capable, under standard temperature and pressure, of causing fire through friction, absorption of moisture or spontaneous chemical changes and, when ignited, burns so vigorously and persistently that it creates  hazard.

(3)       It is an ignitable compressed gas. 

(4)       It is an oxidizer.

Characteristic of reactivity.

A waste exhibits the characteristic of reactivity if a representative sample of the waste has any of the following properties:

(1)       It is normally unstable and readily undergoes violent changes without detonating.

(2)       It reacts violently with water.

(3)       It forms potentially explosive mixtures with water.

(4)       When mixed with water, it generates toxic gases, vapors or fumes in a quantity sufficient to present a danger to human health or the environment.

(5)       It is a cyanide or sulfide bearing waste which, when exposed to pH conditions between 2 and 12.5, can generate toxic gases, vapors or fumes in a quantity sufficient to present a danger to human health or the environment.

(6)       It is capable of detonation or explosive reaction if it is subjected to a strong initiating source or if heated under confinement.

(7)       It is readily capable of detonation or explosive decomposition or reaction at standard temperature and pressure.

(8)       It is a forbidden explosive.

Toxicity characteristic.

A waste exhibits the characteristic of toxicity if, the extract from a representative sample of the waste contains any of the contaminants listed in Table 1 at the concentration equal to or greater than the respective value given in that table.

10. Mutagenic : Substances and products which if they are inhaled or ingested, or if they penetrate the skin, may induce hereditary genetic defects or increase their incidence.
11. Teratogenic and harmful to fertility: Substances and products which if they are inhaled or ingested, or if they penetrate the skin, may induce or increase the incidence of non-hereditary side-effects in offspring or a deterioration of male or female fertility or ability to fertilise.
Harmful to the environment
12. Ecotoxic: Substances and products which present, or may present immediate or delayed risks for one or more sectors of the environment.
Infectious
13. Infectious: Substances containing viable micro-organisms or their toxins which are known or reliably believed to cause disease in man or other living organisms.

 

Methods of examination


In testing for characteristics 1 to 11, the method of examination used shall be as stated in the following European Community (EC) Directives:

i.              Council Directive 87/302/European Economic Commission (EEC)1 for toxicity and ecotoxicity tests;
ii.            Council Directive 92/69/EEC2 for physical, chemical, toxicity and ecotoxiciy tests; and

Points to ponder

How the ISO14001's 'Input-Output' Analysis is helpful in identifying Environmental Aspects which are Scheduled Wastes?
The electroplating process generates an array of Scheduled Wastes.
Identification of environmental aspects which are Scheduled Waste
requires such comprehensive approach. Legal obligation and liability.
It is for this very reason that one should not simplify this method further. I worry about perhaps some potential misinterpretation by those who don't have enough time to think what they read, of what is written in Guidance Clause A.6.1.2, paragraph 5 of the ISO14001:2015 which states .. " An organization does not have to consider each product, component or raw material individually to determine and evaluate their environmental aspects; it may group or categorize activities, products and services when they have common characteristics." Regrouping some manufacturing activities or processes scheme into one category say 'Production' is indeed a good summary but may lead to the omission or 'overlooking' of important environmental aspects. This paragraph may be disconcerting to the prime objective of an EMS, unless, it's just merely for certification.
