    Does your company use towels, rags or absorbents to clean machinery, parts or spills?  If yes, then you will want to know about a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule that may exclude your “solvent-contaminated wipes” from the hazardous waste regulations.  The federal rule took effect in January 2014 in states where EPA still runs the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) program. Ohio is not part of the RCRA program, however the Ohio EPA is in the process of adopting the policy, as is many other states.  

    It took more than a decade for the U.S. EPA to revise its regulations under RCRA, the federal statute governing the disposal of solid and hazardous waste, and conditionally exclude solvent-contaminated wipes from certain federal hazardous waste management requirements, provided that businesses clean or dispose of them properly.  Practically speaking, this means that your company may not need to send these wipes to special disposal facilities or comply with shipping manifest rules – which should translate to cost savings.

    See the complete article from AGC of America to learn more about the rule and its potential impact. View a copy of the complete federal rule.  For more information, visit the U.S. EPA’s website or the Ohio EPA’s website.

    The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has made available on its website a Checklist for Compliance with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a law requiring that federal contractors take affirmative action and do not discriminate against individuals with disabilities. The new tool was created to help contractors assess their compliance with the regulations that govern the law.

    The Checklist was developed by the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy in coordination with OFCCP.  Contractors are not required to use the Checklist, and using the Checklist does not ensure compliance with the Section 503 regulations. However, using the Checklist may help contractors enhance their awareness of its affirmative action obligations regarding individuals with disabilities and alert them to potential compliance problems.

    The Checklist can be found on OFCCP’s website. For additional OFCCP information, tools and resources on the Section 503 regulations, click here. For AGC resources, log in to the AGC website at, then go to the Labor & HR Topical Resources page at, and select the category “EEO” and subcategory “Affirmative Action/EEO.”  Note that AGC’s Affirmative Action Manual for Construction includes information about OFCCP’s recently revised regulations under Section 503.
