EPA requests input on hazardous waste management in the retail sector

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking data from large retailers regarding the management of hazardous waste, including pharmaceuticals. The agency seeks comment on existing data on amount of hazardous waste the retail industry generates, and suggestions for improving hazardous waste regulations for retail operations.

EPA's pre-publication version of the Retailer "Notice of Data Availability" (NODA):

More information on the retail sector NODA:

The request for information from the retail sector is separate from the ongoing EPA rulemaking on pharmaceutical hazardous waste from the health care sector.
