EPA Seeks Comment on Identification of Non-Hazardous Materials that are Solid Waste

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or Agency) is seeking comment on which non-hazardous materials are or are not solid waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The Agency is also seeking comment on a number of specific questions concerning the meaning of ``solid waste'' under RCRA, as it applies to non-hazardous waste programs. We are issuing this ANPRM to assist the Agency in developing certain standards under sections 112 and 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The meaning of ``solid waste'' as defined under RCRA is of particular importance since CAA section 129 states that the term ``solid waste'' shall have the meaning ``established by the Administrator pursuant to [RCRA].''

Comments must be received on or before February 2, 2009. For questions regarding the development of this ANPRM, contact Michael Galbraith at (703) 605-0567, or at the e-mail address, galbraith.michael@epa.gov.
