Description Ecology adopted new rules for solvent-contaminated wipes as part of the Dangerous Waste Regulations. The new rules are effective on April 28, 2019. They apply only to wipes contaminated with solvents that designate as dangerous waste.

The new rules replace the Used Shop Towels Policy.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
