Today, EPA’s finalized Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) rule was published in the Federal Register.  It can be found here.  The pre-published version of the rule was unveiled on December 10, 2014.  The rule goes into effect on July 13, 2015.  It seeks to balance environmental protections with opportunities for the beneficial reuse of hazardous materials.  Among other provisions, the final rule retains the tolling exemption and the remanufacturing exclusion, and makes all four legitimacy criteria mandatory, rather than factors to be considered.
