Ecology proposes to amend Chapter 173-303 Washington Administrative Code (WAC), Dangerous Waste Regulations. These regulations set standards for the safe management of dangerous wastes. Ecology plans to amend specific sections of the dangerous waste regulations to incorporate new federal hazardous waste rules. These changes may affect how generators manage their dangerous waste, adding regulations for solvent-contaminated wipes, legitimate recycling, import and export of hazardous waste, and e-manifests. In addition, we are proposing to restructure the regulations for easier use and compliance, along with added flexibility. Also, other state-initiated changes are being proposed.
