(2) Effective May 12, 1999, the following wastes are prohibited from land disposal: soil and debris contaminated with F032, F034, F035; and radioactive wastes mixed with EPA hazardous waste numbers F032, F034, and F035.
(3) Between May 12, 1997 and May 12, 1999, soil and debris contaminated with F032, F034, F035; and radioactive waste mixed with F032, F034, and F035 may be disposed in a landfill or surface impoundment only if such unit is in compliance with the requirements specified in section 376.1(e)(8)(ii) of this Part.
(4) The requirements of paragraphs (1) and (2) of this subdivision do not apply if:
(i) the wastes meet the applicable treatment standards specified in section 376.4 of this Part;
(ii) persons have been granted an exemption from a prohibition pursuant to a petition under section 376.1(f) of this Part, with respect to those wastes and units covered by the petition;

(iv) persons have been granted an extension to the effective date of a prohibition pursuant to section 376.1(e) of this Part, with respect to those wastes covered by the extension.
(5) To determine whether a hazardous waste identified in this subdivision exceeds the applicable treatment standards specified in section 376.4(a) of this Part, the initial generator must test a sample of the waste extract or the entire waste, depending on whether the treatment standards are expressed as concentrations in the waste extract or the waste, or the generator may use knowledge of the waste. If the waste contains constituents in excess of the applicable universal treatment standard levels of section 376.4(j) of this Part, the waste is prohibited from land disposal, and all requirements of this Part are applicable, except as otherwise specified.
(b) Waste specific prohibitions—toxicity characteristic metal wastes.
