Universal Waste Rule Changes Spearheaded by OMA Move to JCARR

This week Ohio EPA filed with Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) the long awaited universal waste rules governing paint and paint-related wastes among other hazardous wastes.

A public comment period will run until October 17, 2017. A public hearing on this proposed rulemaking will be held in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code. The hearing will be held at Ohio EPA, 50 West Town Street, Columbus, Ohio in Conference Room A, on October 17, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.

The proposed rules, public notice, and the response to comment documents are available for download on the DERR website on the hazardous waste rules Proposed Rules tab. If you need more information, please contact EPA’s Karen Hale.

A big thank you to all the OMA members who participated in the work group to make these beneficial changes possible. 9/14/2017
