The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has proposed an Ohio-specific rule to conditionally exclude hazardous waste contaminated wipes and apparel that are not currently excluded under the solvent wipes rule, OAC rule 3745-51-04(A)(26). The exclusion includes gloves, aprons, smocks, and uniforms that are laundered and returned to service.
Comments on the proposed rule are due July 31, 2018.
Ohio EPA will be holding a public hearing on the revised rule on July 31, 2018, at 10:30 AM at Ohio EPA Central Office, Columbus, Ohio. Please see the public hearing notice, response to comments, proposed rule language and the Business Impact Analysis (below) for information on the changes and how to submit comments.
