EBC Solid Waste Committee Meeting
May 17, 2007 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Please join us for a discussion by Sarah Weinstein, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of MassDEP’s Bureau of Waste Prevention, of the newly proposed Mercury Management Act regulations.
These regulations will establish specific requirements for 1) removing and recycling mercury switches from “end of life” vehicles, 2) collecting and recycling mercury-added products by their manufacturers, and 3) reporting on mercury-added lamp recycling by lamp manufacturers. Sarah will also discuss other components of the Mercury Management Act, specifically involving a disposal ban, labeling requirements, product phase-outs and exemptions, that are now under development at MassDEP and that will be addressed in a separate regulatory package expected to be out for public comment in late Summer or early Fall 2007.
