McCoy's RCRA Review

October 2016



Are “day” cans allowed?

What is the regulatory status of a small “day” container holding hazardous waste or a container that is marked “empty at the end of each shift”? Drilling down into some 2011 EPA guidance gives us the answer.   READ MORE  


Do you know what SW–846 is?

If you know that SW–846 is EPA’s compendium of analytical methods for evaluating wastes, you may be interested in a new SW–846 emailing list. By signing up on the list, you will be notified and asked to comment when EPA posts additions or revisions to nonregulatory SW–846 test methods.   READ MORE  


Monumental training in the Monument City

McCoy heads to Indianapolis, Indiana, October 24-28, 2016. Our host hotel is the Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre in the heart of Indy. After your training, visit the Indianapolis City Market, just four short blocks east of our hotel for an old-world market experience, with a modern twist. Or, hike, bike, and fish your way through the 1700-acre Fort Harrison State Park, about fifteen miles from the hotel. Sign up today.

RCRA by the bay

We’ll be in Houston, Texas, November 15-16, 2016. We will host our last RCRA Refresher of the year at the newly renovated South Shore Harbour Resort. Designed for seasoned pros, McCoy’s 2-Day RCRA Refresher Seminar contains almost all the content of the 5-Day seminar presented in two fast-paced days, so you can get back to work. Or, bring the family and extend your stay to explore gorgeous Galveston Island, about thirty miles away from our hotel. We’ll see you there.

Dazzling training under the lights

McCoy’s final seminar of 2016 will be in Las Vegas, Nevada, December 5-9, 2016. Come stay and play at our host hotel, The Orleans Hotel and Casino. At $49.00 per night, this seminar is a great budget option. Feeling adventurous? After your training, take the plunge on X-Scream, the 866-foot tall roller coaster atop the Stratosphere, just five miles from our hotel. If heights don’t thrill you, travel to another world with Cirque du Soleil’s epic production, KÀ, at the MGM Grand. Join us.
