Ohio House passes shredder bill.

Ohio's House of Representatives has passed House Bill 100, authorizing waste management districts in Ohio to exempt auto shredder residue (ASR) from the waste generation fee. The bill, sponsored primarily by Rep. Mary Taylor (R-Uniontown), passed by a vote of 82-6 with 11 members not voting.

To receive the exemption, the ASR must not contain hazardous waste and must not comprise more than 35 percent of the total weight of the material being processed. The bill also stipulates that the recyclable material generated must be sold, used or reused within 90 days of when it has been processed.

A spokesman for Taylor's office says the bill will likely go to the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee.
