Hazardous Waste Generator Regulations Compendium

In March 2021, EPA made available the first six volumes of its Hazardous Waste Generator Regulations Compendium. The compendium is a user-friendly guide that can assist regulators, the regulated community, and the general public in finding resources addressing specific issues within the hazardous waste generator program. Inside each volume is a list of pertinent RCRA Online documents, Federal Register notices, CFR citations, and web links. A particularly convenient aspect of the compendium is how information is hyperlinked and cross-referenced to improve ease-of-access. The six current volumes of information include:

  1. Satellite accumulation areas,
  2. Generator EPA identification numbers,
  3. Cogeneration issues,
  4. Household hazardous waste,
  5. Personnel training at small and large quantity generators, and
  6. Generator treatment in tanks and containers.
