Treated Wood Waste (TWW)

The legislation that authorized the Alternative Management Standards (AMS) for TWW in Chapter 34 of the hazardous waste regulations expired on December 31, 2020. On January 1, 2021, the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) began to fully regulate TWW as hazardous waste. As of February 16, 2021, DTSC invited interested parties to apply for a variance from certain provisions of law relating to the management of treated wood waste. The variances DTSC issues reimpose conditions similar to the streamlined management requirements that existed previously. 

Please review this TWW fact sheet (PDF) for detail on required variances and disposal options in and near Napa County.
