You're Invited to a Public Workshop on Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (6 NYCRR Part 370 Series)

DEC is holding workshops statewide on the hazardous waste rules and revisions that are being considered for adoption, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency regulations promulgated from 2013 to the present.This includes: the Solvent-Contaminated Wipes Rule; the Electronic Manifest Rules; the Definition of Solid Waste Rule; the Generator Improvements Rule; the Pharmaceuticals Rule; possible changes to the State's Universal Waste Rule and other state-initiated changes. These state-initiated changes include expanding the secondary containment requirements for the storage of liquid hazardous waste and the creation of uniform large quantity generator (LQG) requirements that would apply statewide. This rulemaking is referred to as FedReg6.

To help the public understand the draft regulations and regulatory initiatives, ask questions, and provide informal comments, DEC will be hosting numerous public workshops across the state. Staff will also be available for discussions after the meetings. Those who wish to attend the workshops need to register. Information about the rulemaking and registration details for the workshops are available on DEC's website under outreach information. If you do not have internet access and would like to attend a workshop, please write to the address below or call (518) 402-8651.

DEC will hold a formal public comment period at a later date once it officially proposes the regulations. We will also announce and hold additional public meetings in other locations around the state.

DEC is accepting unofficial written comments regarding this regulatory initiative, and you should submit them to: Michelle Ching, NYS DEC - Division of Materials Management, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7256 or send an e-mail. Please include "Comments on FedReg 6" in the subject line of the e-mail.
