Update on the Revisions to New York’s Part 360 Solid Waste Regulations

It has been a few months since my last update on the proposed revisions to New York’s Part 360 Regulations. During this time, public information meetings have been held across the State and there have been numerous discussions with various stakeholders. The recent Federation of New York Solid Waste Associations conference in Bolton Landing held on May 15-18, 2016 had a special session for the Associations to provide a statement regarding the proposed regulations.  The following summary provides a highlight of current concerns being raised and the next steps in the process.  Previous blog posts on this subject which summarize many of the proposed changes can be found here.
