Frequent Questions

What is a ?delisting? petition?

EPA’s regulations set out a procedure and standards by which persons may demonstrate that a specific waste from a particular generating facility should not be regulated as a listed hazardous waste. Under these regulations, any person may “petition” the EPA to remove (delist) its waste from regulation as hazardous waste. To date, the motor vehicle manufacturing industry has been granted 15 petitions to have their waste from certain facilities excluded from RCRA regulation as a hazardous waste.
