Part 121 Liquid Industrial Waste (to be renamed Liquid Industrial By-Products on March 16, 2016) Statutory Changes


On December 17, 2015, an amendment to Michigan’s liquid industrial waste statute was signed into law.  Two primary changes resulting from the amendment include:
Changing the title of the act and references throughout from “Liquid Industrial Waste” to “Liquid Industrial By-product,” and
Eliminating the required use of a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest to document shipment of liquid industrial waste to a designated facility authorized to recycle or dispose of the waste/by-product. 
The law was given immediate effect which provides for it to become effective on March 16, 2016.  During the interim, the DEQ is allowing liquid industrial waste or liquid industrial by-product handlers to take advantage of the shipping documentation provisions established under the new law.  It allows the use of a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest or other written record which includes: 1) the name and address of the generator, 2) the name of the transporter, 3) the type of by-product shipped, 4) the volume of by-product shipped, 5) the date of shipment from the generator and 6) the name, address and Site ID number of the receiving authorized disposal or recycling designated facility.  This change also eliminates the requirement to submit copies Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifests used for liquid Industrial waste shipments.  As such, liquid industrial waste handlers may also immediately discontinue submitting copies of Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifests in light of the statutory changes.
