Webinar: Overview of Recent Changes to the VHWMR - August 2022

The Vermont Hazardous Waste Program held a webinar on August 11, titled, “An Overview of Recent Changes to the Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (VHWMR).” The recording aims to serve as a continued learning opportunity for hazardous waste generators in Vermont.

During the webinar, speakers from the Program discussed changes to the VHWMR that came into effect in February of 2022 with a particular focus on hazardous waste identification; generator category determination; management standards for generator categories; and alternative management standards associated with conditional exemptions, episodic events, and universal waste. If you are a hazardous waste generator in Vermont, a hazardous waste handler, or are simply interested in learning more about the VHWMR, you are encouraged to watch the recording.
