Missouri Prepares to Adopt Hazardous Waste Generator Rule
Over the past few decades, the hazardous waste generator regulatory program has served as the main authority for hazardous waste management. However, the regulations were not adaptable enough for generators to comply in a sufficient manner. The EPA has addressed the issue by declaring the Hazardous Waste Generator Rule in 2016, a rule that fosters strong guidelines among hazardous waste generators.
Generators of hazardous waste should maintain awareness of the state’s status regarding the rule. Clean Earth continues to provide timely updates on the matter.
Anticipated Rulemaking in 2024
Kansas: The rule is currently being drafted in reference to BWM Policy 2017-P2. The proposed publish date, along with public hearing dates, comment periods, and meeting notices, will occur in 2024. The final rule will go into effect in 2025.
Maine: The rule is currently being drafted with the proposed publish date, public hearing dates, comment periods and meeting notices to occur in early 2024. The final rule will go into effect in 2025.
