Why Maintain a Lead Capture and Removal Program?

Saving cost when possible is common in every business, though following regulations with a maintenance schedule will save owners and operators considerable cost and business interruption.  Under certain circumstances, range solid waste impacted with lead can be a RCRA Hazardous Waste.

Range soils and backstop materials will accumulate significant lead concentrations. Collected, containerized and stored lead bullets & shot must comply with RCRA hazardous waste requirements and obligations for your range.

RCRA statute sections 7002 and 7003 allow the EPA, states or citizens to file civil lawsuits to compel cleanup of or other action for “solid waste” that pose actual or potential imminent and substantial endangerment. Lead shot that accumulates over time and has the potential to migrate, which increases with time.

These conditions make ranges that have not removed lead likely candidates for legal actions unless they are able to document a scheduled maintenance program for regular lead removal, along with written records that document containerization and removal of waste (paper, filters, PPE, debris etc.) which is commonly determined to be RCRA hazardous waste.
