|This proposed rulemaking is a comprehensive revision to existing regulations. The last comprehensive revisions to the regulations governing solid waste management in New York State occurred in 1993. In support of these regulatory changes a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS) has been prepared. The revisions include technical amendments and clarifications, as well as updated criteria needed due to legal and policy developments.
Written comments on these draft regulations and DGEIS will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on July 15, 2016. Public hearings regarding the proposed regulations and DGEIS will be held during the public comment period
