Final Technical Guidance

   DEP ID: 254-2000-715. Title: Use of Waste from Land Clearing, Grubbing and Excavation (LCGE) and the Use of Concrete or Other Clean Fill Materials Containing Protruding Rebar or Other Metal as Clean Fill. Description: This policy provides guidance for the use of waste from land clearing, grubbing and excavation (LCGE) as clean fill, including provisions for the use of concrete containing protruding rebar as clean fill. Substantive changes were proposed to the guidance, which was initially issued on March 20, 1990, under the title of ''Definition of Clean Fill.'' The substantive changes, emanating from new regulations concerning the use of waste from land clearing, grubbing and excavation as clean fill and policy modifications concerning the safe management of protruding rebar from concrete, were advertised for public comment at 36 Pa.B. 1294 (March 18, 2006). Comments were received which have been addressed by the Department in a separate Comment and Response document that is available on the Department's website at (DEP Keyword: Technical Guidance). Upon finalization of the substantive revisions to the policy, the Department incorporated modified provisions concerning the management of uncontaminated concrete containing protruding rebar, including measures that are recommended to prevent or minimize safety hazards. The guidance is issued under the authority of the Solid Waste Management Act (35 P. S. §§ 6018.101--6018.1003).
