63. How would a facility report toxic chemicals in wastes that are treated in waste treatment units that it does not own? For example, if a facility sold a unit that is within its contiguous property to another company, which facility should report?
The facility creating the waste containing the toxic chemical would report the toxic chemicals as an off-site transfer. Assuming the waste treatment units are neither owned nor operated by the facility creating the waste, the waste treatment unit is a separate facility. The waste treatment facility would only report if they manufacture, process, or otherwise use the toxic chemical in excess of the thresholds. In that case, the waste treatment facility would report any release or other waste management activities associated with the toxic chemical at its facility.
