Solid Waste Interest Group


Major revisions to the Louisiana Solid Waste Regulations (LAC 33:Part V) were made in the early 1990's. Since that time, minor revisions have been made to address specific issues, but the regulations have not been re-evaluated to determine whether they meet current industry and environmental standards.

The department solicited stakeholder participation in September, 2004 to evaluate and update LAC 33:Part VII. The goal of this workgroup was to simplify the existing solid waste regulations and make them more user friendly to the public and regulated community. To accomplish this, the stakeholder group, along with department staff, met for approximately 4months. From these meetings, recommendations were submitted to the executive staff for consideration in the updating of LAC 33:Part VII. This page provides information regarding these meetings and results therein in the form of a draft update of these regulations.
