Welcome and Opening Remarks
Hazardous Waste & Materials Management Capacity
Waste disposal capacity is a current and long-term issue facing both the hazardous waste (HW) and materials management (MM) programs. The HW incinerator backlog has highlighted ramifications for generators and treatment, disposal and storage facilities (TSDFs) that are not incinerators, and broad issues such as the supply chain and worker shortages. On the MM side, solid waste capacity shortfalls due to the closure of disposal facilities has implications not only in the State where the disposal facility is located but also where the waste is transported. Management of PFAS-contaminated and Superfund cleanup wastes and siting considerations are among the issues affecting capacity over the long term. The session will discuss current and future issues and invite attendees to share their experiences and challenges with HW and MM capacity.Presentation

The interactive discussion will include a mix of questions to both the panel and audience members, polling, and presentation of current program activities focused on current State activities and a summary of challenges these programs face in addressing PFAS.
Leaders from several Federal agencies and departments will provide briefings to the membership on their current priorities, recent policy updates and challenges related to cleanup and waste management at federal facility sites. Invited speakers will also provide a summary of their efforts to address PFAS.Presentation 1 Presentation 2 Presentation 3 Presentation 4 SECAP Fact Sheet
