What are combustible waste materials?
Reply: Please note that there is no comprehensive definition of the term “combustible waste materials.” However, giving that term its ordinary meaning, the definition would include for example, combustible liquids, solids, rags or other combustible soaked waste materials that can be ignited and will sustain combustion. Of course, this list is not comprehensive; other waste materials may also be considered “combustible waste materials.” Question 5: Has OSHA issued variances from the daily disposal requirements? If so, under what circumstances? Reply: After an extensive search, OSHA could not locate any variances issued excepting any employer from the daily disposal requirements. Procedures for variances including desirable procedural regulations for variances are found in §1905.11. You may apply for a variance by contacting [the Directorate of Science, Technology, and Medicine at: [Directorate of Science, Technology, and Medicine USDOL/OSHA Room N3653, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W.
