Welcome to EPA's first Solid and Hazardous Waste Listserv message!

The purpose of this listserv is to provide stakeholders with updates about the federal solid and hazardous waste programs. This listserv is used to send out announcements about rulemakings, upcoming webinars, guidance documents, open comment periods and other related communications.

Below are some recent announcements:

Electronic Filing of Hazardous Waste Exports Required Starting on December 31

Starting on December 31, 2017, all U.S. exporters of manifested hazardous waste, universal waste, and spent lead-acid batteries for recycling or disposal, and all exporters of cathode ray tubes for recycling will be required to file EPA information in the Automated Export System or AESDirect for each export shipment. Paper processes will no longer be allowed on or after the compliance date.

EPA's Hazardous Waste Export-Import Revisions final rule that became effective on December 31, 2016 provided flexibility to the regulated community by establishing a transition period prior to the required filing of EPA information into the AES for certain export shipments.
