McCoy's RCRA Review

March 2016



Is your recycling legitimate in the eyes of EPA?

The new definition of solid waste (DSW) rule is complex and contains significant nuances, one being the recycling legitimacy criteria. These criteria apply to all recycling conducted under RCRA—not just to the new reclamation exclusions added by this rule. How do you prove such legitimacy to a regulatory authority? EPA has a tool to assist you.   READ MORE  


Out of this world RCRA

Join us April 11-15, 2016 in Houston, Texas for a 5-day RCRA seminar at the Crown Plaza River Oaks. Before or after your training, discover why Houston is nicknamed “Space City.” One reason is that Space Center Houston (about thirty miles from the hotel) is an amazing educational attraction to see while you’re here. Visit and you’ll get to go inside a replica of the space shuttle. Get a Houston CityPASS to visit it and five other area attractions at a nicely reduced price. Register now, and lift off.

EPA has added some new materials to the list of categorical non-waste fuels as part of the nonhazardous secondary materials rule of Part 241. See what materials, if burned, are not solid wastes.   READ MORE

You’ll find the compliance answers you need with a few clicks. Order yours today.


RCRA training, beachside

One of our most relaxing locations is Hilton Head Island, and we’ll be there May 16-20, 2016. Our host hotel, the Sonesta Resort, is steps from the sand—the perfect place to unwind after your RCRA training. Relax and watch the waves roll in or rent a bike from the hotel and wind your way through sixty miles of trails. Learn RCRA in beautiful South Carolina.
