Focus: A work group has been formed and is meeting. Some issues the MRW work group will address: 

  • Work on clarifying current design and operational requirements. 
  • Look at providing more consistency between the design requirements for MRW (WAC 173-350-360) and TSD facilities (Chapter 173-303 WAC), and worker safety requirements in WAC 173-350-360 and requirements of the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. 
  • Look at the definition of limited MRW facility to determine if this definition should be changed to provide more collection opportunities for MRW materials. 

Update: Draft language was shared with the work group during the week of January 4, 2016. We are continuing to work with stakeholders to address recommendations and revise language. Please send questions to w2rrulemaking@ecy.wa.gov
