Minnesota and Missouri Prepare to Adopt Hazardous Waste Generator Improvement Rule in 2024
On November 28, 2016, the Federal Register (FR) recognized the EPA Administration for signing the final Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule. This rule clarifies hazardous waste generator regulations which provides flexibility to waste generators regarding how waste is managed. To this day, the EPA continues to bridge important gaps to consistently improve the rules along with strengthening environmental protection amongst communities.
As more states decide to implement the Hazardous Waste Generator Improvement Rule, Clean Earth is committed to supporting waste generators by providing monthly updates on the rulemaking status.
Anticipated Rulemaking in 2024:
Minnesota: The rule is currently being drafted, in addition to its previously proposed rulemaking: Land-Related Housekeeping Amendments. The proposed publish date, public hearing dates, comment periods and meeting notices are set to take place in January 2024. If no hearing is required, the final rule date will be effective in May 2024. Contrarily, if a hearing is required, the final rule will go into effect in October 2024.
Missouri: The rule is still being drafted and in the Stakeholder Review Period. The proposed publish date, public hearing date, comment periods and meeting notices are not yet determined. The final rule effective date will occur in early 2024.
