Hazardous or Not Under RCRA: Haz Waste Obligations Under EPA's Final Rule, Effective 5/30/17

April 5, 2017

The EPA’s final hazardous waste generator regulations, which contain over 60 changes, are now in effect. The final rule creates new and expanded compliance obligations for hazardous waste generators and, in some cases, attempts to reduce a generator’s regulatory burden by providing greater flexibility in how facilities and employees manage their hazardous waste.

As a hazardous waste generator, your organization is responsible for determining whether or not waste is hazardous. You must properly identify, manage, and document the full cycle of the waste until it is disposed of or recycled. Finally, if your organization’s waste is regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), it is critical to know which properties make something hazardous and how to tell if the waste is regulated under RCRA.

Use this widely popular webinar on-demand led by environmental compliance attorney Sherry Jackman and environmental consultant and auditor Michael Dudasko. They will cover the steps and strategies for determining what is and what is not considered hazardous waste under RCRA, and how to comply with applicable RCRA regulations and the final hazardous waste generator rule in effect as of May 30, 2017.
