Treated Wood Waste Regulations

What is DTSC Doing to Protect the Environment from Treated Wood Waste?

Assembly Bill 1353 (2004, Matthews) required DTSC to adopt regulations specifying alternative management standards for treated wood waste. It also added Sections 25150.7 and 25150.8 to the Health and Safety Code. The following information outlines how DTSC has implemented the regulations on treated wood waste.
