Title 6 NYCRR Part 360 Regulations

New York State's Solid Waste Management Facilities Regulations, 6 NYCRR Part 360 (Part 360) are the authority by which the State sets design standards and operational criteria for all solid waste management facilities. The Department is revising these regulations to reflect the Department's experience in implementing these regulations since the last major revision in 1992.

The current Part 360 Regulations will remain in effect until such time as the rulemaking process is complete.

Comprehensive Revisions, Enhancements and Structure Changes

The revisions include technical amendments and clarifications, as well as updated language due to legal and policy developments. The revisions will also include re-formatting of the existing structure of Part 360 into a Part 360 series, enumerated as Parts 360-369. The information contained as subparts in the current Part 360 regulations will be subdivided into these Parts to better organize solid waste topics, and to make future revisions to specific topics less burdensome, as follows:
