USEPA Grants Ohio Final Authorization to Operate Its Hazardous Waste Program

On Feb. 12, 2018, Ohio received final authorization from the USEPA to operate its hazardous waste program. 83 Fed.Reg. 5948 (Feb. 12, 2018). Under this authorization, Ohio has authority to manage all aspects of its hazardous waste program, including permitting of treatment, storage and disposal facilities. However, the USEPA reserves its authority under the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984. This Final Rule was premised on a Proposed Rule published on Sept. 17, 2017, which contains a table with the complete state analogues. The authorization does not address Ohio’s broader in scope rules, such as classifying antifreeze, aerosol cans and paint wastes as universal wastes.
