Question Number: 15, 1998 EPCRA 313 Q&A: Reporting Responsibility; SIC Code

15. Is a waste management facility that is classified in SIC code 4953 (Refuse Systems), but is not regulated under Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), subject to EPCRA Section 313?
No. Facilities in SIC code 4953 are only subject to EPCRA Section 313 if they are also regulated under RCRA Subtitle C. Many types of waste management facilities operate within SIC code 4953 that are not regulated under the RCRA Subtitle C programs, such as sanitary landfills, garbage collection, and street refuse systems, which were not added under EPCRA Section 313 by the May 1, 1997, final rule.
