”Let Truckers Use the Restroom”

In response to reports that shippers and receivers are refusing to let truck drivers use their restrooms, the American Logistics Aid Network sent the following request to thousands of U.S. businesses. https://landline.media/let-truckers-use-the-restroom-group-tells-shippers-receivers/

Does the 90 Day Clock Apply

We have reached out to the USEPA and many states seeking guidance on the regulatory requirement around Hazardous Waste Generator Accumulation time limits. Currently these requirements remain in place. A common response from the state level we received:

”As I’m sure you are aware, this is a constantly evolving situation. As of this moment, the SC DHEC does not plan to offer any relief related to COVID 19 issues for generators regarding management of hazardous waste. If any generators do encounter issues relating to hazardous waste regulatory requirements, we do encourage the generators to document the issues fully.”

We will continue to post Regulatory updates Here
