Acting on a decade-old proposed rule, EPA has issued a new final rule concerning the RCRA regulation of solvent wipes. The final rule was published at 78 Fed. Reg. 46448 (July 31, 2013).
The final rule creates two new "conditional exclusions":
1. A conditional exclusion from the definition of solid waste for reusable solvent wipes that are laundered for re-use.
2. A conditional exclusion from the definition of hazardous waste for solvent wipes that are disposed of.
