Current Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (VHWMR) effective March 15, 2013:

Recent changes to the VHWMR include adoption of new federal RCRA regulations required for Vermont’s hazardous waste program to maintain its EPA-authorized status; adoption of the federal Academic Labs rule to replace the expired University Labs XL rule (applicable to UVM); addition of new standards for facilities that aggregate and temporarily store waste fuels received from off-site for subsequent reclamation/reuse; substitution of current small quantity generator emergency response procedures with equally protective but simpler standards; and clarification that used oil fuel meeting quality specifications is subject to limited regulation under the Subchapter 8 used oil management standards.
