The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) will hold a hearing on proposed changes to the Hazardous Waste Management rules, 0400-12-01. At the hearing, DSWM will present and receive comments on this proposal to add requirements for the management of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals that are specifically tailored for healthcare facilities and reverse distributors of creditable pharmaceuticals. When these amendments become effective, healthcare facilities (for both humans and animals) and reverse distributors will manage their hazardous waste pharmaceuticals under a new set of sector-specific standards in lieu of the existing hazardous waste generator rules.

Details on proposed amendments and meeting attendance options can be found in the public notice documents.
