UTC withdraws rulemaking to consider revisions to solid waste definitions in WAC 480-70.
On December 8, 2010, the Commission filed a letter of withdrawal of this rulemaking proceeding with the Office of the Code Reviser. On December 9, 2010, the Commission issued a notice of the withdrawal to all interested persons.
The commission invited written comments by June 9, 2008, and held a stakeholder workshop to discuss WAC 480-70, related to solid waste collection companies on Tuesday, July 1, 2008.
Staff drafted rule language for discussion purposes that could replace current WAC 480-70-016 and clarified when a solid waste certificate or motor carrier permit is needed. The draft language also defined "private carriage."
The commission invited comments on the discussion draft rule to be filed with the commission no later than Friday, April 10, 2009.
The draft rule addressed the following topics:
1. When a solid waste collection certificate is required.
2. Private carriage of solid waste collection.
3. Commercial recycling collection requires a motor carrier permit.
4. Commercial and industrial byproducts that require solid waste certificate
5. Conditions for transporting mixed recyclable materials to a sorting facility.
On April 20, 2009, the Commission Staff solicited comments from stakeholders on a discussion draft rule. Many stakeholders provided comments and those comments are available for inspection on the Commission's web site at www.utc.wa.gov/080591.
Having reviewed the comments, Staff has developed a new draft rule. Because the new draft represents a substantial departure from the previous draft rule circulated to stakeholders on April 20, 2009, we are again soliciting written comments. On November 16, 2009, the Commission issued a notice to all interested persons with the opportunity to submit written comments on the new draft rule. Comments on the new draft rule must be filed with the Commission no later than Friday, January 8, 2010. For more information, please see the Notice
