Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


The EPA is proposing to approve the State of Maine's permit program for municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLF's) and to approve the State's approach of not allowing conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG) hazardous waste to be sent to non-municipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units. Elsewhere in today's Federal Register, EPA is publishing a direct final rule that determines the adequacy of the State of Maine's municipal solid waste permitting program without a prior proposal because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose it. Unless we get relevant written comments which oppose this determination of adequacy during the comment period, the decision will take effect. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this rule before it takes effect and this separate document in this proposed rules section of the direct final Federal Register will serve as the proposal to determine the adequacy of the State Municipal Solid Waste Landfill permitting program.
