Ranch Matters was asked what is the legal definition of “Solid Waste” along with a possible example.
The following Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) defines Solid Waste:
OAR 340-093-0040 (91)
“Solid Waste” means all useless or discarded putrescible and non-putrescible materials, including but not limited to garbage, rubbish, refuse, ashes, paper, and cardboard, sewage sludge, septic tank and cesspool pumping or other sludge, useless or discarded commercial, industrial, demolition and construction materials, discarded or abandon vehicles or parts thereof, discarded home and industrial appliances, manure, vegetable or animal solid and semi-solid materials, dead animals and infectious waste.
Would the attached pictures, taken in the Ranch “BONEYARD” on 10/04/19, constitute Solid Waste?
