The National Association of Chain Drug Stores and RILA asked the EPA to reclassify products with low levels of nicotine during a public meeting held May 9, 2017 by the EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management.
While testifying individually, both organizations asked the EPA to reclassify nicotine products as non-acutely hazardous wastes, noting that consumers can dispose of low-concentration nicotine products such as nicotine gum, lozenges, patches, prescription liquids and e-cigarettes.
However, nicotine is currently classified as an acutely hazardous waste under RCRA, which means the disposal of the same products are highly regulated in a retail store setting. To read RILA’s comments in their entirety, click here.
