Identification of Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials That Are Solid Waste

The Municipal D Waste Task Force within the Materials Management Subcommittee of the Association of State and Tenitorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) appreciates the opportunity to provide comments regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) proposed Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units. Reconsideration and Proposed Amendments: Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials That Are Solid Waste (cumulatively called the “CISWI Reconsideration,” 76 FR 80452, December 23, 2011).

Identification of Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials That Are Solid Waste

ASTSWMO appreciates the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed rule, Identification of Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials That Are Solid Waste, published in the Federal Register on June 4, 2010 (75 FR 3 1844). These comments have not been reviewed or adopted by the ASTSWMO Board of Directors. In addition, individual State or Territorial solid waste programs may also provide comments based on their perspectives and experiences. In commenting on this solid waste management proposal — which was proposed concurrently by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with the air emission requirements under Clean Air Act (CAA) section 112 for indusfrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters, as well as air emission requirements under CAA section 129 for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units – we recognize that our State colleagues who regulate and administer air programs may also provide EPA with their views on issues raised in the proposed rule.
