RMW Regulation

The current RMW regulation is out-dated, confusing, and hard to stay in compliance with. The RMW regulation needs to be updated to be more inline with current technologies, economic values, other regulations, and best management practices through clear and concise regulations. Additionally the regulation needs to better address smaller generators and healthcare facilities; as they have different objectives, waste generation processes, and economic status. The updating of this regulation will improve the over State-wide compliance efforts.
