Satellite Accumulation Area

A generator may accumulate no more than 55 gallons of total hazardous waste or one quart of acutely hazardous waste in containers at or near any point of generation where wastes initially accumulate and which is under the control of the operator/generator of the process that generates the waste, either visually or under lock and key.  The guidelines governing Satellite Accumulation Areas are listed in the Hazardous Materials Management Plan and shall be followed when utilizing a Satellite Accumulation Area.

Each generator is responsible for ensuring that monthly inspections are conducted on all areas where satellite accumulations containers are stored.  A log of these inspections, the Satellite Accumulation Area Monthly Inspection Form, shall be maintained. Completed forms shall be turned in to Environmental Health and Safety.
