Final Rules | Waste Programs Division

The following pages provide final rules related to the Waste Programs Division.

Hazardous Waste Amendments 2013

Summary:
ADEQ amended the state’s hazardous waste rules to incorporate changes in federal regulations implementing Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA). The amendments in this final rule adopt changes to federal regulations that were in effect as of July 1, 2013, for most sections, and update the general incorporation date in Arizona hazardous waste rules from July 1, 2006, to July 1, 2013. A later incorporation date is established in two Arizona rule sections to capture the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA’s) solvent-contaminated wipes rule, effective Jan. 31, 2014. This rule also made technical corrections that the EPA has said are necessary to renew Arizona’s authorization to implement federal hazardous waste regulations. ADEQ-initiated technical corrections are also included. EPA’s 2008 rule revising the definition of solid waste is not incorporated by this rulemaking. EPA rules recently vacated by a federal court are also excluded or removed | Download >
