Draft Rules Beneficially Reclassify Hazardous Waste as Universal Waste

Ohio EPA has prepared a package of draft hazardous waste management rules pertaining to the classification of certain hazardous wastes as Ohio-specific universal wastes.

The new universal wastes include hazardous non-empty aerosol cans, hazardous antifreeze and hazardous paint and paint-related wastes.

The OMA has been instrumental in advancing these beneficial rules.  Comments are due December 21, 2016.  The draft rules and related documents are available for download here; see the Interested Party Tab.  Contact OMA’s Rob Brundrett for more information.  12/1/2016
