Short description: 
EPA-NONSPEC WASTE CERTIF                                                   

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Environmental  Protection  Act  to  redefine  "special      
   waste".  Provides that certain industrial process waste  and pollution      
   control waste shall be managed as special waste unless  the  generator      
   provides a specified certification. Effective immediately.                  
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Provides that, to the extent that  a  term  or  condition  of  an      
   existing  permit  requires  the  permittee to treat as special waste a      
   material that is made a non-special waste under this amendatory Act of      
   1997, that term or condition is hereby superseded, and  the  permittee      
   may  treat  that material as a non-special waste, even if the material      
   is identified in the permit as  part  of  a  particular  waste  stream      
   rather  than  identified  specifically  as  a  special waste. Excludes      
   portable devices and containers with up to one inch of  special  waste      
   residue  from  the  category  of industrial process waste or pollution      
   control waste that is considered to  be  special  waste.  Deletes  the      
   provision   limiting   the   effectiveness   of  a  non-special  waste      
   certification  to  3  years.   Removes  the   requirement   that   the      
   certification   be   maintained  on  site.   Requires  the  certifying      
   generator to maintain the certification while it is effective and  for      
   3  years following termination of its effectiveness. Allows the Agency      
   to  require  a  generator  to  analytically   test   waste   following      
   certification  if  it  believes  the  certification  to be inaccurate.      
   Deletes potentially infectious medical waste and hazardous waste  from      
   the  list of waste categories that a generator may certify to that his      
   or her own waste does not fall under and, therefore, that his  or  her      
   waste  is  not industrial process waste or pollution control waste (or      
   special waste).
