EPA Postpones Review of North Carolina Hazardous Waste Program, State Asks for Dismissal of Order

Record #:
The North Carolina Attorney General’s office has asked the Environmental Protection Agency to withdraw the order to consider whether to revoke the state’s authority to regulate hazardous waste. Issues arose from GSX Chemical Services, Inc. and the Hazardous Waste Treatment Council alleging that the law discriminates against commercial hazardous waste treatment facilities and makes it impossible for new commercial facilities to be permitted in the state.
