Hi All,

We use syringes to deliver solvents. Some of the syringes have needles, some do not. None contain any biohazardous substance, but the solvents would be hazardous waste if disposed of.

*For syringes without needles, if the y are empty when disposed of, can we consider each syringe to be a RCRA empty container and throw them in the regular trash?

*What about empty, non-biohazardous syringes with needles?

I have done a little searching on thi s issue, but have not come up with definitive guidance.

Thank you

Mark Williams
