Revisions to Chapter 173-350 WAC - Solid Waste Handling Standards; Department of Ecology is proposing a comprehensive update of the regulations in Chapter 173-350 WAC - Solid Waste Handling Standards. This rule is the state's primary rule for managing non-hazardous solid waste. The rule does not apply to the design or operation of municipal solid waste landfills, but it does apply to the design and operation of facilities that collect municipal solid waste, such as transfer stations. The rule does not apply to dangerous wastes regulated under Chapter 173-303 WAC - Dangerous Waste Regulations, but it does apply to moderate risk wastes that have characteristics of hazardous waste.
