Document Description
This project is a rulemarking that adopts an emergency regulation package related to the management of hazardous waste CRTs and CRT glass. The rulemaking allows universal waste handlers to continue to collect and treat hazardous waste CRT devices or CRTs to generate CRT glass and to send the generated CRT glass to a CRT glass manufacturer or primary or secondary lead smelter for recycling following the less stringent requirements of the universal waste regulations. The emergency regulations require the handler to keep and provide to DTSC upon request specificed records relative to such shipments. This enhances enforcement mechanisms, resulting in increased regulatory oversight and further ensure our rules are more protective to human health and the environment.
