40 CFR Part 261

[EPA-R06-RCRA-2009-0312; SW FRL-9472-6]


Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of 
Hazardous Waste; Withdrawal of proposed rule

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Because EPA has discovered additional information which we 
believe is pertinent for consideration in this decision, we are 
withdrawing the proposed rule to grant an exclusion for Republic 
Services, Inc./BFI Gulf West Landfill (Gulf West) located in Anahuac, 
TX, published on January 28, 2011. This notice removes the proposed 
rule published in 76 FR 5110 (January 28, 2011) for public review and 
comment.

FOR FURTHER TECHNICAL INFORMATION CONTACT: Michelle Peace by mail at 
U.S. EPA Region 6, Multimedia Planning and Permitting Division, 
Corrective Action and Waste Minimization Section (6PD-C), 1445 Ross 
Avenue, Dallas, TX 75202, by phone at (214) 665-7430 or by e-mail at 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Because EPA has discovered additional 
information pertinent to the final disposition of the petition, we are 
withdrawing the proposed rule for Republic Services, Inc./BFI Gulf West 
Landfill (Gulf West) located in Anahuac, TX, published on January 28, 
2011 (76 FR 5110). EPA subsequently received information after the 
comment period which highlighted several deficiencies in the data 
submitted by Gulf West. EPA will return the December 2009 petition 
submitted by Gulf West. No further action will be taken on this 
petition. A new petition will be required for this waste stream.
