Committee D34 on Waste Management

Staff Manager: Brian Milewski

ASTM Committee D34 on Waste Management was formed in 1980. D34 meets twice a year, usually in March and October, with about 20 members attending over three days of technical meetings. The Committee maintains an intense liaison with the EPA as a result of a cooperative agreement between the Agency and the Committee for the development of waste management standards. D34, with a membership of 188 industry professionals and experts, currently has jurisdiction over 105 standards, published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 11.04. D34 has 12 technical subcommittees and sub-sections that maintain jurisdiction over these standards. Information on this subcommittee structure and D34's portfolio of approved standards and Work Items under construction are available from the List of Subcommittees, Standards and Work Items below. These standards have, and continue to play, a preeminent role in all aspects addressing the generation, storage, transportation, treatment, recovery, and disposal of wastes generated from industrial, commercial, residential and institutional sources.More
