SSPC GUIDE 7
GUIDE TO THE DISPOSAL OF LEAD-CONTAMINATED SURFACE PREPARATION DEBRIS
|Publication Date:||9 July 2015|
This guide provides information regarding handling, testing, and disposal of solid debris generated during preparation of surfaces previously painted with lead-containing paint.
This guide is based on U.S. federal regulations only. States or other local jurisdictions may have requirements that are stricter, such as requiring additional analytical procedures or regulating other metals. Non-hazardous waste containing lead is also regulated in some states.
This guide does not cover other waste streams such as discarded tarpaulins and personal protective equipment that may be contaminated with lead and must be tested to determine proper disposal.
This guide does not cover removal of the coating from the structure or containment of the debris. These activities are described in SSPC-Guide 6.
