Is anyone aware of requirements for the configuration in which drums of hazardous waste should be stored - both for indoor/outdoor and/or ignitable or reactive wastes?

I seem to remember specific dimensions for storing a large number of drums such as 4-by-4 (with adequate isle space around the group) or 2-by-8, as an example. (I'm ignoring height requirements for the moment, but I believe they are different both for indoor and outdoor storage of ignitable and reactive waste.)

And, if storing drums in a dedicated containment building, does the 40-foot setback from a property line apply (for reactive or ignitable hazardous waste)?

Everyone should also be aware of state regulations. In PA, storage requirements are more stringent than federal regs in some cases.
