Rcra Codes & Proper Shipping Names - Quiz


This test is a review, of RCRA Codes, and Proper Shipping Names


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Is the ph, of a liquid, the only factor used, to determine if a waste gets D002?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The pH of a liquid is not the only factor used to determine if a waste gets classified as D002. The D002 classification is based on the corrosivity of the waste, which is determined by multiple factors including pH, as well as the presence of certain chemicals or substances that can cause corrosion. Therefore, pH alone is not sufficient to determine if a waste gets classified as D002.

    If you need, to find, a shipping description which one, of these, do you use.....

    • A.

      CFR 40, 172.101

    • B.

      CFR 49, 172.101

    • C.

      CFR 1926, 172.101

    • D.

      CFR 72, 101.172

    • E.

      CFR 101, 72.101

    Correct Answer
    B. CFR 49, 172.101
    Explanation
    The correct answer is CFR 49, 172.101. This is because CFR 49 refers to Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which specifically pertains to transportation regulations. Section 172.101 within CFR 49 provides the Hazardous Materials Table, which includes shipping descriptions for hazardous materials. Therefore, if you need to find a shipping description, CFR 49, 172.101 is the appropriate regulation to consult.

    What does RQ stand for?

    • A.

      Recordable Quantity

    • B.

      Regulated Quantity

    • C.

      Reportable Quantity

    • D.

      Registered Quantity

    Correct Answer
    C. Reportable Quantity
    Explanation
    RQ stands for Reportable Quantity. This term is commonly used in environmental regulations to refer to the amount of a hazardous substance that, if released into the environment, must be reported to the appropriate authorities. The reportable quantity is typically determined based on the potential harm the substance can cause to human health or the environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If you have a drum of flammable liquid what weight does it have to be greater than, to get a RQ, in the shipping name?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      10

    • C.

      100

    • D.

      400

    • E.

      1000

    Correct Answer
    C. 100
    Explanation
    The weight of the drum of flammable liquid has to be greater than 100 to get a RQ (Reportable Quantity) in the shipping name. This means that if the weight of the drum is equal to or less than 100, it does not require reporting as a hazardous material during shipping.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which RCRA code(s) does a mixture, of toluene and xylene, get when it is a spent waste?

    • A.

      D001,F003,F005,U220

    • B.

      D001

    • C.

      D001,U220

    • D.

      D001,F003

    • E.

      D001,F003,F005

    Correct Answer
    E. D001,F003,F005
    Explanation
    A mixture of toluene and xylene, when it is a spent waste, would be assigned the RCRA codes D001, F003, and F005. The D001 code is given to waste that exhibits characteristics of ignitability, while the F003 code is for waste that exhibits characteristics of ignitability, reactivity, and toxicity. The F005 code is for waste that exhibits characteristics of ignitability and toxicity. Therefore, since the mixture of toluene and xylene is spent waste, it would have all three of these codes assigned to it.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What if the drum is just toluene?

    • A.

      D001

    • B.

      D001,F005

    • C.

      D001,U220

    • D.

      F005,U220

    • E.

      D001,F003

    Correct Answer
    C. D001,U220
    Explanation
    The correct answer is D001,U220, which means that the drum contains toluene (D001) and is also classified as a hazardous waste due to its ignitability (U220). This suggests that toluene, which is a flammable liquid, meets the criteria for being classified as a hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Therefore, if the drum only contains toluene, it would still be considered a hazardous waste due to its ignitability.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the ph range, for D002?

    • A.

      0 - 14

    • B.

      2.5 - 12

    • C.

      2 - 12

    • D.

      2.5 - 12.5

    • E.

      2 - 12.5

    Correct Answer
    E. 2 - 12.5
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2 - 12.5. The pH range is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. A pH range of 2 - 12.5 indicates that the substance can be acidic (pH less than 7), neutral (pH 7), or alkaline (pH greater than 7). This wide range suggests that D002 can tolerate a broad spectrum of pH levels, making it versatile and adaptable in various environments.

    Correct Answer
    RQ,Waste Gasoline,3,UN1203,PG-II
    RQ,Waste Gasoline,3,UN 1203,PG - II
    Explanation
    The given answer is a repetition of the information provided in the question. It states that the waste gasoline is classified as UN1203 with a packing group of II, and the quantity is 3. The repetition of the information in the answer confirms that it is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Can anything other than a flammable liquid have a D001 code?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, anything other than a flammable liquid can have a D001 code. The D001 code is used to classify hazardous waste that exhibits the characteristic of ignitability, meaning it can create a fire under certain conditions. While flammable liquids commonly fall under this category, other substances such as solids or gases can also exhibit ignitability and therefore be assigned a D001 code.

  • 12. 

    What does D001 stand for?all lower case and 1 word use RCRA definition

    Correct Answer
    ignitable
    Explanation
    D001 stands for ignitable. This is based on the RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) definition, which categorizes hazardous waste into different groups. The D001 classification specifically refers to waste that is flammable, combustible, or has a flashpoint below 60 degrees Celsius. It poses a potential risk of causing fires or explosions if not handled properly.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Same for D002

    Correct Answer
    corrosive
    corrosivity
  • 14. 

    And D003

    Correct Answer
    reactive
    reactivity
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "reactive" because both the words "reactive" and "reactivity" are related to the ability to react or respond to stimuli or changes in the environment. "Reactive" is an adjective that describes something or someone that reacts quickly or strongly to a stimulus, while "reactivity" is a noun that refers to the degree or extent of being reactive. Therefore, both words are closely related in terms of their meaning and usage.
