The LSPA presented the following monthly compliance tip at the May Membership Meeting at Doubletree Hotel in Westborough, MA on May 11, 2017. 

Remediation waste contaminated with waste oil that isn’t otherwise a hazardous waste, including remedial wastewatersoil, debris, and sediment that contains used or unused waste oil, does not need to be managed as MA-01 hazardous waste if managed under the MCP’s remediation waste requirements at 310 CMR 40.0030, and shipped to a facility permitted to receive these materials. (See 310 CMR 30.252)

For petroleum contaminated soils, the MassDEP policy goal is to avoid disposal.  Note that asphalt batching facilities operate under Class A recycling permits and are technically recycling rather than disposal facilities.
