CT Adopts the Solvent-Contaminated Wipes Rule

DEEP has passed a new regulation adopting the EPA's 2013 Solvent-Contaminated Wipes Rule. This rule provides an exemption from hazardous waste requirements for certain solvent-contaminated wipes that meet specified management requirements. In particular, qualifying wipes may be: (1) laundered at certain laundry facilities; or (2) disposed of at certain in-state combustion facilities or at out-of-state combustion or landfill facilities meeting the requirements of the receiving state. A copy of the final DEEP regulation is available on the Connecticut eRegulations website. More information about this new rule is available in a DEEP PowerPoint Presentation. Note: pursuant to the adoption of this new regulation, the DEEP's fact sheet entitled "Industrial Rag Handling" is no longer valid, and will be replaced.
