About the 2015 DSW Final Rule
The January 13, 2015, DSW Final Rule modifies the EPA's 2008 Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) rule to ensure it protects human health and the environment from the mismanagement of hazardous secondary materials intended for recycling, while promoting sustainability through the encouragement of safe and environmentally responsible recycling of these materials. During the call, the EPA rule writers will explain the major revisions in the rule, which include the following:

(1) Replacing the 2008 transfer-based exclusion with the new verified recycler exclusion;
(2) Establishing a clear, uniform legitimate recycling standard for all hazardous secondary materials recycling;
(3) Retaining the 2008 generator-controlled exclusion with strengthened conditions, including a codified contained standard;
(4) Revising the existing solid waste variance criteria and procedures; and
(5) Promulgating a new targeted remanufacturing exclusion for certain higher-value hazardous spent solvents that are being remanufactured into commercial-grade products.

For more information about the DSW rule, see EPA's website: http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/hazard/dsw/rulemaking.htm.
