(c) Except as otherwise provided in this section, the following definitions and requirements apply to persons managing paint and paint-related wastes:

  (1) Those requirements which apply to universal wastes in general and the definitions under the following regulations, as adopted by reference under §335.261 of this title (relating to Universal Waste Rule): Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) §§273.5, 273.6, 273.10 - 273.12, 273.15 - 273.20, 273.30 - 273.32, 273.35 - 273.40, 273.50 - 273.56, 273.60 - 273.62, and 273.70;

The paint and paint-related waste must be contained in one or more of the following:

    (A) a container that remains closed, except when necessary to add or remove waste;

    (D) a tank that meets the requirements of 40 CFR Part 265, Subpart J, except for 40 CFR §§265.197(c), 265.200, and 265.201; or

    (E) a transport vehicle or vessel that is closed, structurally sound, compatible with the waste, and that lacks evidence of leakage, spillage, or damage that could cause leakage under reasonably foreseeable conditions; and

    (F) a container, multiple container package unit, tank, transport vehicle or vessel that is labeled or marked clearly with the words "Universal Waste - Paint and Paint-Related Wastes;" and

  (3) For paint and paint-related waste that is ignitable, reactive, or incompatible waste, the applicable requirements under 40 CFR §§265.17, 265.176, and 265.177.
