WAC 173-350-240 - Energy recovery & incineration facilities

Ecology staff lead: Gary Bleeker 

Work group members

Name Organization
Art Mains Roosevelt Regional Landfill
Jeff Martin Klickitat County Public Health
Kevin Barry Klickitat County Public Health
Michael LaScuola Spokane Regional Health District

Focus: A work group has been formed and is expected to begin meeting in early 2015. The work group will look at clarifying this section, especially who it applies to. A determination needs to be made as to whether this section should regulate facilities that burn wood or wood derived fuel. The group will also look at streamlining and simplifying the process to determine whether an energy recovery facility or incinerator will be required to obtain a solid waste handling permit, or be eligible for an exemption to obtaining a solid waste permit. 

Update: The agency determined that holding meetings of a formal work group was not necessary. Staff worked with local stakeholders in the two counties affected by this section of the rule to develop recommendations for change. Please send questions to w2rrulemaking@ecy.wa.gov

Work group meetings and notes
Draft language will be shared with the public during an informal review process in the spring of 2016.
