RCRA User-Friendly Reference Documents
Have you ever wished that there was a website that pulled all of the RCRA regulations and guidance on a topic into one location? Well EPA has one—it is called “Hazardous Waste Regulations: User-Friendly Reference Documents.” The website consolidates the regulations, Federal Register notices, policy letters, and guidance documents on a variety of topics. Some of the areas covered include:
- The definition of solid waste;
- Hazardous waste characteristics and listings;
- Generator regulations; and
- Treatment, storage, and disposal facility regulations.
The goal is to consolidate RCRA information for use by the agency, states, and the regulated community. Check out the above website—you never know when this information may come in handy.
