Original Congressional RCRA Statute Donated to McCoy

It’s bittersweet that so many of our friends and colleagues are now retiring from RCRA and environmental management. Each person will be missed, but we’re thrilled they’re starting new adventures. Such is the case with Mr. Randy Lamdin, from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 8.

We were surprised and delighted when last month, Randy donated his original Congressional RCRA Statute to McCoy. The path for this venerable document to land in McCoy’s office is profound.

It began when Randy Lamdin joined U.S. EPA, Region 8 on June 21, 1982, a mere six years after RCRA was enacted and two years after the implementing regs came out. Randy and RCRA grew up together. As a token of Randy’s hard work and dedication, his mentor, then U.S. EPA Region 8, RCRA Branch Chief, Mr. Lou Johnson, donated his original RCRA Statute to Randy, when Mr. Johnson retired.

Thirty-four years of exemplary service later, Randy retired from EPA on November 25, 2016, and he donated the document he received from Lou—the Congressional RCRA Statute—to McCoy and Associates.

We couldn’t be more proud to receive it and we are humbled by Randy’s gift. This legacy document is now framed “under glass” in McCoy’s front office for all to see.

On behalf of all of us at Team McCoy, being a part of your RCRA training journey is a great honor to our company.

Thank you, Randy. Thank you, Lou. And thank you to all of our customers.
