RE: Waste Minimization Plans -Reply

Texas has a requirement for anyone above the
CESQG limit (1.102 tons per year) or reporters on
the TRI form R.  The requirements are:
1. Prepare a Source reduction and waste
minimization plan.  Elements, such as technical
feasibility of projects must be addressed.  

2.  Companies submit an executive summary of the
plan to the State environmental agency (TNRCC)
the exec. sum is public information.

3. Some facilities must submit a one page annual
progress report to TNRCC.

PA has a requirement for generators of both
hazardous and industrial
non-hazardous waste, to complete source
reduction strategy (SRS) plans.
There is currently also a requirement for
commercial TSD's to submit a copy
of the SRS for each generator for which they are
seeking a waste acceptance
approval from the Dept.  This last requirement is
being dropped with our
updated regulations.
