Ohio EPA Announces Early Stakeholder Outreach – Hazardous Waste Management Program


Ohio EPA announced that early stakeholder outreach (ESO) comments for the Hazardous Waste Management Program are due September 26, 2017. The rule changes under consideration are federally-driven updates. Ohio’s hazardous waste rules must match their federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) counterpart regulations in 40 CFR Parts 260 to 279. A number of Ohio rules need to be rescinded, added or amended to address changes to, or the creation of, their federal RCRA counterpart provisions, as published in the Federal Register. 8/23/2017
