DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE WHITE PAPER: newpig.com/ solventwipes Solvent-Contaminated Wipes Management While the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was considering the solvent-contaminated wipes regulation, one of their concerns was allowing flexibility while minimizing the health and environmental impacts that these wipes presented. The final rule reflects their belief that both can be accomplished and proper management begins well before the wipes hit the dock for laundering or disposal. To be eligible for the exemption, both reusable and disposable solvent-contaminated wipes must be managed properly during their lifecycle. That means that while they are onsite at facilities, during transportation and when they are laundered, dry cleaned, incinerated or land disposed, wipes must be handled according to the standards outlined in the regulation. The definition of "wipe" includes absorbent mats. This opens up some opportunities for facilities that use absorbents to pick up solvent leaks, spills and overspray.
