Big Hazardous Waste Update in Big Sky Country

Posted on 5/23/2022 by Roger Marks

Effective May 14, 2022, Montana has incorporated significantly revised Federal hazardous waste regulations into its state requirements (Rule 17.53.105). References to US EPA’s RCRA regulations in the Administrative Rules of Montana (ARM) now refer to the regulatory text in effect as of July 21, 2021.

Significant updates for hazardous waste generators include:  
  • Adoption of EPA’s Generator Improvements Rule
  • Adoption of new standards for managing Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals (HWP)
  • Addition of hazardous waste aerosol cans to the universal waste program
  • Revisions to the Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) that impact recycling
  • New management standards for recalled/defective airbags
Also included in this action are changes to EPA’s hazardous waste regulations affecting test methods for ignitable hazardous waste, disposal of coal combustion residuals (CCR), exporting cathode ray tubes (CRTs), and imports/exports of hazardous waste.

View: The Notice of rulemaking appeared in the Montana Administrative Register (MAR) on May 13, 2022.
