54. A person who recovers from a unit a halocarbon that the person is unable to reclaim or eliminate must take the halocarbon or have it taken to the supplier or any other halocarbon wholesaler not later than the forty-fifth day following the date on which the container used for the recovery of the halocarbon is filled to its maximum capacity.
The supplier or wholesaler is required to take the returned halocarbons back if they are of the same type as the halocarbons the supplier or wholesaler sells or distributes or sold or distributed before 23 December 2004, so long as
(1) the halocarbons are confined within an appropriate recovery container;
(2) a label is affixed to the container identifying the type of halocarbon it contains; and
(3) the container holds no more than one type of halocarbon and no substance other than halocarbons, except water or oil from normal use or other residues produced by normal halocarbon degradation.
The supplier or wholesaler is also required to give every person or municipality that returns a halocarbon a receipt indicating the name of the supplier or wholesaler, duly dated and signed, specifying the name of the person or municipality that returned the halocarbon and, in the case of a natural person, the name of the enterprise for which the person works and the type and estimated quantity of halocarbon returned.
In addition, the supplier or wholesaler must adequately store the returned halocarbons until the supplier or wholesaler is able to
(1) reclaim or eliminate them;
(2) deliver them to an enterprise or body able to reclaim or eliminate them; or
(3) deliver them to another supplier higher up in the chain of distribution of halocarbons, subject to the second paragraph.
