Missouri to Adopt Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule in 2022
With decades of experience implementing the hazardous waste generator regulatory program and working with states and other stakeholders, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noticed inconsistencies and a lack of flexibility in the regulations. In response, the EPA’s final Hazardous Waste Generator Rule was put into effect, providing needed flexibility, improvements of environmental protection and the addressment of gaps in existing regulations.
To maintain compliance with the final rule, hazardous waste generators are encouraged to monitor each state’s progress as they work toward adopting the rule.
