September 25, 2015 (80 FR 57918) -- Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements; Proposed rule.

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) is proposing to revise the hazardous waste generator regulations under the
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to improve compliance and thereby enhance protection of human health and the environment.
Specifically, EPA proposes to revise certain components of the hazardous waste generator regulatory program; address gaps in the regulations; provide
greater flexibility for hazardous waste generators to manage their hazardous waste in a cost-effective and protective manner; reorganize the hazardous waste
generator regulations to make them more user-friendly and thus improve their usability by the regulated community; and make technical corrections and conforming changes to address inadvertent errors, remove obsolete references to programs that no longer exist, and improve the readability of the regulations.
These proposed changes are both a result of EPA's experience in implementing and evaluating the hazardous waste generator program over the last 30 years, as well as a response to concerns and issues identified by the states and regulated community.

DATES: Comments must be received to EPA on or before November 24, 2015.

COMMENTS DUE:  To Tallahassee by Friday- October 23, 2015
