November 5, 2015: Comment Period Extended on Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements

The comment period for the EPA’s plans to make improvements to hazardous waste generator regulations has been extended to December 24, 2015. EPA is making the adjustments and changes in an effort to improve compliance and enhance protection of both the environment and public health. The revisions will include addressing current gaps in the regulations, allow more flexibility to hazardous waste generators in order to allow processing waste in a more cost effective manner, adjust the current regulations to make them easier to read and follow, and deleting those regulations that apply to programs that are no longer in effect.
