This stakeholder meeting will seek informal input on Rule Project No. 2019-086-335-WS prior to proposal. The rulemaking will revise Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), Chapters 335 to adopt the following changes made by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):

  • Hazardous Waste Generator ImprovementsExit the TCEQ See the EPA’s final rule for a summary, with a link to the Federal Register publication, rule history, additional resources, and basic information including legal authorities and links to CFR citations and the EPA docket number.
    • The EPA published the Rule adoption in the Federal Register at 81 FR 85732, with an effective date of May 30, 2017.

In addition to the adoption of federally mandated revisions, the rulemaking and stakeholder group will address a state-initiated revision to increase the fee schedules for the generation fee (30 TAC 335.323) and the industrial solid waste and hazardous waste management fee (30 TAC 335.325).

Please check this webpage and sign up to receive notifications on Industrial and Hazardous Waste Topics.

All informal comments received at and following the meeting, will be reviewed. TCEQ staff is specifically soliciting comments on the revised definition of solid waste, codification and restructuring of generator rules, management standards for hazardous waste pharmaceuticals, and fee increases.

This is an opportunity to provide informal comments to staff prior to the formal rulemaking process. While staff will review all comments received, the TCEQ will not formally respond to any informal comments. A formal public rule hearing will be scheduled following rule proposal by the Commission.
