Standard Guide for Sample Selection of Debris waste from a Building Renovation or Lead Abatement Project for Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) testing for Leachable Lead (Pb)
|Publication Date:||10 September 1997|
|ICS Code (Installations and equipment for waste disposal and treatment):||13.030.40|
1.1 This guide describes a method for selecting samples from the debris waste stream created during demolition, renovation, or lead abatement projects. The lead toxicity of the waste then is determined by analysis of the leachate resulting from use of the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP).
1.2 This guide is intended for use to sample debris waste created by renovation or lead abatement projects in and around buildings and related structures to determine the lead (Pb) toxicity of the waste.
1.3 This guide is intended for use when sampling to test for lead (Pb) only and does not include sampling considerations for other toxic metals or for toxic organic compounds. This guide also does not include consideration of sample for determination of other possible hazardous characteristics of the waste
1.4 This guide assumes that the individual type debris wastes are at least partially segregated and that each type waste may be viewed easily.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
