Rule Details

Rule Number: 12P045
Title: Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Agency of Natural Resources
Legal Authority: 10 V.S.A. Chapter 159 ยง 6603(1)
Summary: The rule provides a regulatory framework for managing hazardous waste by identifying wastes subject to regulation as hazardous and establishing management standards for businesses that generate, transport, treat, store or dispose of them. In general, the rule is being revised to incorporate new federal regulations, clarify existing requirements, and make minor corrections. Some specific changes include: adoption of the federal Academic Labs rule to replace the expiring University Labs XL rule, addition of new standards for facilities that aggregate and temporarily store waste fuels received from off-site for subsequent reclamation/reuse; substitution of current emergency response procedures for small quantity generators with simplified federal standards; addition of legitimacy criteria for recycling; clarification that intact circuit boards may be managed under an existing exemption for shredded circuit boards; and clarification that specification used oil fuel is subject to limited regulation.
Persons Affected: Interested / affected parties include: hazardous waste generators (conditionally exempt, small, and large quantity); permitted transporters; permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities; the solid waste management districts; environmental contractors and consultants; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); the Vermont Department of Health; the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets; and various divisions and programs within the Department of Environmental Conservation.

The rule does include new standards (i.e., conditions of an exemption) for facilities that aggregate and temporarily store waste fuels received from off-site for subsequent reclamation or reuse; the cost of complying with these new requirements should be offset by savings resulting from managing the exempted fuel as a fuel product. Other changes to the rule may reduce economic impact (e.g., simplified emergency response procedures for small quantity generators; adoption of the federal Academic Labs rule to replace the expiring University Labs XL Project; clarification that intact circuit
