Utah proposes adoption of new generator regulations

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has proposed adoption of EPA’s final “Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule” (Rule) which went into effect at the federal level and in a few other states on May 30, 2017. The Rule reorganizes, consolidates, and clarifies the hazardous waste generator regulations with the goal of making them easier to understand and more user-friendly. The Rule also changes the title of the lowest category of hazardous waste generator from “conditionally exempt small quantity generator” to “very small quantity generator” (VSQG).

Utah also proposes to adopt the Rule’s two “voluntary” provisions that allow a VSQG to send its hazardous waste to a large quantity generator (LQG) under the same ownership (the VSQG/LQG consolidation program), and allow VSQGs and small quantity generators (SQGs) to generate episodic amounts of hazardous waste without being subject to additional regulation (the VSQG/SQG episodic event program). Because the EPA deems the VSQG/LQG consolidation program and the VSQG/SQG episodic event program to be less stringent than the hazardous waste requirements that would otherwise apply, Utah’s adoption of these regulations is optional.

The DEQ will be accepting written comments on the proposed adoption of the Rule until July 3, 2017, and anticipates that the rule will go into effect on July 31, 2017.
