The Pollution Control Board proposed amendments which will impact transporters of special waste and empty portable devices or containers

The POLLUTION CONTROL BOARD proposed amendments to the Part titled Special Waste Hauling (35 IAC 809; 43 Ill Reg 13361) that permit use of an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency prescribed manifest form by haulers of non-hazardous special waste as an alternative to the more burdensome and costly USEPA Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (which is still required for hazardous special waste shipments).

Bottom Line:  The proposed amendments are intended to allow Illinois transporters of State-regulated non-hazardous special waste to obtain and use functionally identical manifests to track such waste while avoiding the significant costs and burdens associated with utilization of Unites States Environmental Protection Agency’s e-Manifest system.

The Board will accept written public comments on this proposal for a period of at least 45 days after the date of publication in the Illinois Register. Public comments must be filed with the Clerk of the Board. Public comments should reference Docket R19-18 and be addressed to: Clerk’s Office. Illinois Pollution Control Board JRTC 100 W. Randolph St., Suite 11-500 Chicago IL 60601.  Public comments may also be filed electronically through the Clerk’s Office On-Line (COOL) on the Board’s website at pcb.illinois.gov. Interested persons may request copies of the Board’s opinion and order in R19-18 by calling the Clerk’s office at 312/814-3620 or may download copies from the Board’s Web site at pcb.illinois.gov.
