Organization of Recipient:United States Senate
Description: EPA has not determined what regulatory action is appropriate for solvent-contaminated shop towels. EPA may provide an exclusion from the definition of solid waste for these items. States have policies for contaminated wipes, but the regulations differ from state to state. Generators have petitioned EPA for federal regulations to promote regulatory consistency. EPA is working with stakeholders to develop a proposal that ensures environmentally sound management, is cost-effective, and encourages source reduction and recycling of the hazardous solvents.
