Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) Rulemakings for RCRA Hazardous Waste Regulations

2015 DSW Final Rule

The EPA finalized new safeguards that promote responsible hazardous secondary materials recycling. The final rule modifies the EPA’s 2008 Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) rule to ensure it protects human health and the environment from the mismanagement of hazardous secondary materials intended for recycling, while promoting sustainability through the encouragement of safe and environmentally responsible recycling of such materials. The EPA has also issued a PDF document that explains the 2015 DSW Final Rule. It is available at the link below.
