Delaware is the 13th state as well as the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico to adopt the Aerosols as Universal Waste Rule. The rule will go into effect in Delaware on Jan. 21, 2021.
The Aerosols as Universal Waste Rule became effective on Feb. 7, 2020. Because adding aerosols to the universal waste program makes the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations less stringent than they were before, states are not required to adopt the new rule. With that said, based on how states handled previous changes to the Federal universal waste rules, we believe most, if not all, states will ultimately adopt the Aerosols as Universal Waste Rule.
Clean Earth is tracking the rulemaking process for the states to show when the rule is effective, as well as the interim steps such as draft regulations and public comment periods.
The rule is currently in effect in Minnesota; however, an anticipated amendment is expected in 2021 with public comment in the first half of the year. Ohio has a similar state law already in effect.
The following states have anticipated rulemaking by July 1, 2021:
The below states are expected to have rulemaking after July 1, 2021:
