Ohio EPA has New Fact Sheet on Universal Waste

Ohio EPA developed a new fact sheet for the updated Universal Waste (UW) rules. Three new types of UW have been added to the list: paint and paint-related waste, antifreeze, and non-empty aerosol containers.

Per the Ohio Administrative Code, UW are not fully regulated as hazardous waste. These waste streams may be managed as universal waste within the state of Ohio. However, other states may not have designated these wastes as a UW. Therefore, if you send an Ohio-specific universal waste to or through another state, you must comply with that state’s requirements for the transportation and management of the waste. 2/1/2018
