Unravel the complexities of RCRA

The 2015 edition of McCoy's RCRA Unraveled includes guidance/clarification on the most troublesome areas in Parts 261-266, 268, 273, and 279 contained in Title 40 of the CFR. The book clearly explains the regs and answers many questions, such as:

  • Can I use composite samples to make hazardous waste determinations?
  • Are my spent materials, sludges, by-products, etc., excluded from the definition of solid and hazardous waste if I recycle them?
  • Are my spent solvent streams really listed hazardous wastes or only hazardous by characteristic?
  • When do the P- and U-codes apply to chemicals that I am discarding?
  • When does satellite accumulation end and 90-day accumulation begin? What are the different requirements for these two types of accumulation?
  • How are spills and spill residues regulated?
  • How can I take advantage of the legal loopholes and exemptions to keep me out of RCRA?
  • How should hazardous waste generated by contractors at my site be managed?
  • How do the mixture and derived-from rules apply to my operations?
  • How can I treat my hazardous waste without a permit?
  • What is the easiest way to manage my bulbs and batteries?
  • Is my recycling practice just a manufacturing operation or really a RCRA waste management activity?
  • How do the LDR regs apply to my operation?
  • What do the Subpart AA-CC regs require me to do?
  • If I have hazardous contaminated soil, what are my remediation options under RCRA?
