As we reported earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its Management Standards for Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals, impacting health care entities including long-term care (LTC) facilities. These requirements regard the generation, management, storage, treatment and disposal of hazardous wastes.
As we continue to monitor, below is the most recent anticipated schedule of states adopting the final rule.
Clean Earth has been following EPA activity on this rulemaking since its proposal in 2015. The new regulations were detailed in hundreds of pages and have been summarized on the Clean Earth website to provide highlights of how the final rule affects health care facilities and the state-by-state adoption process.
