Public Seminar on Universal Waste

March 8, 2019


The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) will hold a public informational seminar on March 25, 2019, to present information on California's Universal Waste Program and the proposed regulations to include waste photovoltaic modules (PV modules), commonly known as solar panels, on the list of hazardous wastes eligible to be managed as universal waste. DTSC is proposing these new regulations to promote a streamlined approach to the end of life management of solar panels and add safeguards that will provide enhanced protection for human health, safety, and the environment.


This informational session offers the opportunity for public discussion and is intended to familiarize people with California's Universal Waste Program and the proposal for PV modules. DTSC intends to public notice the rulemaking package on April 19, 2019, which will begin the formal rulemaking process.


The meeting agenda and proposed regulatory text will be available on the PV module - universal waste project web page at: Stakeholders can attend the seminar in-person or participate remotely via live Webcast.
