Retail Strategy: A New Focus on Hazardous Waste Regulations – EPA Connect #coupons #for #department

America’s hazardous waste management program ensures the safe management of hazardous waste from the “cradle to the grave”. Many of these regulations were developed more than three decades ago, so it is important we ensure they continue to effectively protect human health and environment into the future.

These regulations were developed primarily for industrial and manufacturing settings, but apply to any non-household facility generating and managing hazardous waste—including some facilities that may surprise people. For example, hospitals, schools, and retail stores all generate hazardous waste and are subject to our regulations. However, because these types of facilities aren’t industrial in nature, sometimes the design of the hazardous waste regulations can pose compliance challenges. In recent years, we began to explore how we can update these important safeguards for a retail setting and address the potential challenges these regulations present for retail.

You might not think of consumer goods at retail stores as especially hazardous, but some household cleaners, automotive products, batteries and other items meet the definition of hazardous waste when disposed. These goods are important parts of our everyday lives and may require special disposal when they are no longer able to be sold. We want to ensure that these items, if they are not sold and must be disposed, are managed safely and properly.

Recently, EPA and other regulators focused increased attention on the retail sector. Instances of hazardous waste mismanagement and non-compliance by major retailers led us to seek information and solicit feedback by issuing a Retail Notice of Data Availability (NODA) in 2014. Feedback on the NODA, as well as information gathered from our continued engagement with the retail sector and regulatory community, not only increased our understanding of how retailers handle consumer goods that cannot be sold but also shed light on the challenges retailers face when managing goods that are hazardous wastes when disposed.

I’m excited to announce that we are unveiling a cohesive strategy to address these unique issues and to ensure that retail stores comply with hazardous waste regulations. This strategy takes into account the feedback we received in 2014, as well as our knowledge of how unsalable items are managed in the retail sector. It builds upon regulatory efforts underway, including proposed updates and improvements to existing hazardous waste generator regulations and a proposed set of regulations designed to allow flexibility in the management and disposal of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals.

As laid out in the strategy, we’ve taken these actions to ease the burden of managing hazardous wastes in a retail setting while maintaining important protections to human health and the environment, and furthering the President’s goal of reducing regulatory burden across the government (EO 13610). The strategy outlines our next steps, which include:

  • issuing the final generator rule in fall 2016;
  • working on finalizing the pharmaceuticals rule;
  • issuing a guide on recycling aerosol cans;
  • proposing a universal waste rule for aerosol cans; and
  • issuing a policy on reverse distribution and RCRA.

This retail strategy is an important next step in our journey to explore options for reducing management burdens, ensuring compliance with hazardous waste regulations and protecting human health and the environment. Our strategy is available at http://www.epa.gov/hwgenerators/hazardous-waste-management-and-retail-sector. Take a look. We’re interested in your thoughts as we move forward in partnership with all stakeholders to implement this strategy.

I am glad to see this moving forward. And will review and comment on the strategy. I would also be willing to work with you on doing a similar strategy for law enforcement. They get trapped into generator status due to the restrictions on household haz waste disposal. Having work for region 5 as an epa rcra permit writer i hope we can discuss and resolve this problem too in the near future.

thanks for giving a such a wonderful things to get more knowledgeable information of everyone to stay on this entire healthy environment. keep sharing more information with us.

The waste management plan is an issue that we defiantly need to ensure the environment is healthy. The enforcement of strict laws will assist, but not neutralize the problem with most companies still harming the environmental health of the planet. The propose plan for aerosol cans is a great start in building a foundation for other proposals such as liquid radiation waste.

thanks for shared wonderful information of giving best information.its more useful and more helpful. great doing keep sharing

I wonder what the typical practices for waste management is at large retailers such as Walmart or Target. Perhaps there is a specific example of a company that does it very efficiently. It really depends on the retail store.

thanks for shared wonderful information

Great Article. Very good this article, find lots of interesting information, I am always visiting this site, and I have learned many good Coias.

THANKS!
Article I find very interesatnteenfoque about the new approach that gives on Hazardous Waste Regulation

Will power is not enough to get a recovery from drug and alcohol addiction problems. An environment that is unperturbed and away from the daily grind is vital for this recovery. Professional care givers who observe your behavior, symptoms, and mental mark up are available 24 7 at the rehab centers in Florida. This helps better recovery as the patient is under observation and will not have an opportunity to fall back into the same addictive patterns.

Nice to see things are going to the right direction!

I appreciate this information provided about the new focus on hazardous waste regulations. It is interesting to learn that consumer goods found at retail stores can pose danger. It is a good idea to keep track of household cleaners, batteries, and other items to avoid accidents. Something to consider would be to have monthly inspections of the home to dispose of this material regularly.

For Immediate Release April 24, 2013

Wine Retailer Association Announces Name Changes and Expanded Area of Focus

—National Association of Wine Retailers Expanding
Focus to Include New Areas of Concern to America’s Wine Retailers—

(Sacramento, CALIF)—The Specialty Wine Retailers Association (SWRA) announced today it is changing the organization’s name to the National Association of Wine Retailers (NAWR) to reflect an expansion of the trade association’s areas of interest and focus. While still advocating for the rights of retailers to ship wine directly to consumers, NAWR has expanded its advocacy interest to issue of Third Party Marketing, Primary Source laws, and Tied House regulations as well as an expanded interest in promoting proper Commerce Clause understanding as it relates to alcohol and the 21st Amendment.

Although SWRA was founded with the specific intent of asserting wine retailers’ rights to practice wine retailing free from state based discrimination, a host of new issues impacting how wine retailers conduct business in the 21st century have convinced the Board of Directors to expand its area of focus,” said Tom Wark, the NAWR Executive Director. “NAWR remains intent on forcing the issue of free, fair and non-discriminatory direct shipping via the courthouse and the state house, but is also expanding to assert retailers interest in a host of other areas.

The new NAWR has also launched a new website in association with the name change: http://www.nawr.org. The NAWR positions on a number of issues of concern to NAWR members and modern retailers are presented at the new website.

“Wine retailing in the United States has rapidly changed and evolved over the past decade to the point where changing consumer expectations, enhanced logistics technology and new retail marketing channels are forcing wine retailers to change how they do business,” noted Wark. “The new NAWR represents wine retailers who require a voice in the regulatory and political arena able to articulate their unique interests.”
