Who is responsible for controlling dust and debris from renovation waste once the waste container or truck used to transport the waste leaves the renovation site?

When a renovation firm transports waste from renovation activities, the firm must contain the waste to prevent release of dust and debris.  The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule does not address the responsibilities of other entities. EPA recommends consulting with state and local waste disposal authorities to learn about any additional requirements.
