WAC 173-350-370 - Product take back (possible new section)

Agendas and meeting notes from the advisory committee on section 370 on the WAC 173-350 rulemaking.

WAC 173-350-370 - Product take back (possible new section)

Ecology staff lead: Megan Warfield 

Focus: References to "product take-back centers" can only be found in the definitions (WAC 173-350-100) and MRW (WAC 173-350-360) sections of the regulation. A new product take-back section would extract requirements for product take-back centers from the MRW section to a new section, adjusting applicability as necessary in both the MRW and new sections. Work would also explore expanding the definition of product take-back to maximize collection opportunities. 

Update: At this time Ecology does not expect to propose a new section on product take back. The agency is continuing to look at the definition of product take back center in relation to moderate risk waste handling and hazardous waste regulations. Please send questions to w2rrulemaking@ecy.wa.gov
