Stormwater Control Manual Completed
..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................


In the fourth quarter of 2017, ISRI’s Stormwater Task Force approved the Stormwater Control Manual, the last of its Phase II deliverables. ISRI’s Phase II research sought to identify appropriate and effective stormwater controls for current industry operations for inclusion in a stormwater control guidance manual for members. Phase II included a preliminary recycling facility review
and a separate multi-year stormwater study. All Phase I and Phase II documents are available
to ISRI members and are posted within the member pages of the ISRI website.  


ISRI Advocates for Regulatory Reform at EPA to Reduce the Regulatory Burden on Recyclers
..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Through discussions with EPA’s leadership and submission of formal written comments detailing
the major regulations that negatively impact recycling operations and that are in need of repeal, replacement, or modification, ISRI raised the following major regulatory issues:

  • Need to pull all scrap commodities out of waste definitions wherever they appear;
  • Alignment of benchmarking monitoring in stormwater permits with performance potential
    of control measures;
  • Elimination of chemical data reporting requirements for scrap metal imported for recycling; and
  • Need for clarification of the CFC regulations to more properly reflect the original intent of    Congress and remove the ultimate burden currently on recyclers.

ISRI also recommended that EPA’s Office of Policy coordinate rulemaking activities across
EPA’s program offices to reduce the likelihood that a proposed regulation by one office will
create challenges.










Our Mission | ISRI is the voice of the recycling industry, promoting safe, economically sustainable and environmentally
responsible recycling through networking, advocacy, and education.
