Hazardous Waste Management Ordinance
Do you preform work in Hennepin County? If you do, then you may be aware of The Hennepin County Hazardous Waste Management Ordinance. The Ordinance has been around for quite some time, but recently the country has begun to imposed the ordinance on the residential remodeling and repair industry. In one instance, a painting contractor was notified of their obligation to register (fill out a form and pay a fee) as a “minimal hazardous waste producer” because they use and dispose of painting products. Our NARI Legislative Liaison, Bill Gschwind as well as BATC representatives are planning to meet with Hennepin County officials to gain a better understanding of how they intend to apply the ordinance to our industry. In the meantime, you can view the ordinance here.
