Proposed Hazardous Waste Rule
June 18, 2019 Dakota Digital Network Presentation on Proposed Rule Updates
The Hazardous Waste Section is responsible for regulating the storage, treatment, transport, and disposal of hazardous waste in the state of South Dakota. The hazardous waste section also provides technical assistance, conducts inspections, conducts complaint investigations, and assigns generator identification numbers.
SDDENR requests public comment on proposed updates to our state’s hazardous waste rules. Found under the Administrative Rules of South Dakota (ARSD) Chapter 74:28, the proposed rules will adopt federal hazardous waste regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 40 Parts 260 through 279 revised through June 30, 2018. In addition, the proposed state rules will incorporate two final rules published in the Federal Register: November 30, 2018 (airbags) and February 22, 2019 (hazardous waste pharmaceuticals).
A hearing regarding the rules will be held before the Board of Minerals and Environment on July 18, 2019 in the Joe Foss Building’s Floyd Matthew Training Center at 523 E. Capitol Avenue in Pierre. Written comments regarding the rules must be received by the department by July 15, 2019 in order to be considered. Questions regarding the proposed update may be directed to Carrie Jacobson by email at email@example.com or to hazardous waste program staff by calling 605-773-3153.
For more information on the proposed updates, please visit the Proposed Updates to the South Dakota Hazardous Waste Rules webpage.
On June 18, 2019 at 1:00 pm CDT, staff from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ (DENR) hazardous waste section will provide an overview of proposed updates to the state’s hazardous waste regulations. The event is free and is scheduled at Dakota Digital Network (DDN) locations across the state. Details regarding the event are below. If you have any questions about the event or proposed rules, please contact: Anthony Wagner or Dale Healey at 605-773-3153.

e-Manifest National Tracking System
EPA is establishing a national system for tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically. This system, known as "e-Manifest", will modernize the nation's cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process. EPA will launch the e-Manifest system nation-wide on June 30, 2018. Until the SDDENR incorporates the e-Manifest rule into the state's hazardous waste rules, EPA will continue to implement the system; however, South Dakota is responsible for providing access to the system for South Dakota hazaroudous waste generators.
For more information/fact sheets, please see EPA's e-Manifest fact sheet website at: https://www.epa.gov/e-manifest/fact-sheets-e-manifest-stakeholders.
Specifically, the Hazardous Waste Generators Fact Sheet can be found at: https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2018-05/documents/e-manifest_generators_fact_sheet_0.pdf
Contact Tony Wagner or Dale Healey at (605) 773-3153 to access the e-Manifest system or if you have any additional questions.
