McCoy's RCRA Review

January 2017



RCRA in retail

Compliance with RCRA in the retail sector is difficult for many reasons. EPA recently released its strategy for addressing RCRA compliance in this sector.   READ MORE  


What do labs and agriculture have in common?

They are both covered by new McCoy white papers. If you work in a lab, you may be interested in downloading our new white paper entitled RCRA Issues in Academic, Government, and Industrial Laboratories. And for those of you in the agricultural chemical industries, we have just made available a white paper entitled RCRA Compliance in the Agricultural Fertilizer, Pesticide, and Chemical Industry. Both are provided on a complimentary basis as a service to our customers.




RCRA under glass

As environmental management becomes a multi-generational profession, there are many comings and goings. And sometimes a little history needs to be preserved. That’s why we were so honored that one of our long-time customers entrusted us with a pretty special document.   READ MORE  


RCRA in the Valley of the Sun

Our first seminar of 2017 will be in Phoenix, Arizona, February 6-10, 2017, where the average February temperature sits at a comfy 72°F. Join us at the Hilton Phoenix/Mesa, bring your hiking boots, and get out and enjoy the sunshine after your training. For outdoor adventuring, head to South Mountain Park where you can see ancient Hohokam petroglyphs, just thirty minutes by car from the hotel. Be sure to bring plenty of water. Sign up today.

Get clued-in on site remediation

EPA’s massive website is a great resource for all types of environmental information, and has many subsites. The agency’s Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website is just one example. If you are involved in remediation, it may be worth a visit.   READ MORE  




2016 enforcement results released

EPA recently made available its Enforcement Annual Results for fiscal year 2016. An overview, details, analysis, and an interactive map showing enforcement data are provided online.   READ MORE  


Refresh yourself far, far away

Our first RCRA Refresher of 2017 will be in Denver, Colorado, March 21-22, 2017 at the Renaissance Boulder Flatiron Hotel. McCoy’s RCRA Refresher is a fast-paced seminar geared towards RCRA veterans. We condense almost all the content of our 5-day seminar into two short days. If you can come early or stay late, the world-famous Denver Art Museum is hosting a special exhibition of original Star Wars™ costumes. Just thirty minutes by car from the hotel, this limited engagement is something you won’t want to miss. Join us.

Findings on fracking

Although not a RCRA issue, there is significant interest in the environmental community and country at large as to the effects of fracking on drinking water quality. EPA recently released its final report entitled Hydraulic Fracturing for Oil and Gas: Impacts from the Hydraulic Fracturing Water Cycle on Drinking Water Resources in the United States. A 50-page executive summary and 666-page main report (not including 572 pages of appendices) should provide plenty of informative reading.


RCRA at the fore

Escape the cold and join McCoy in sunny Orlando, Florida, February 27-March 3, 2017, for RCRA training. Our host hotel, The Rosen Plaza, offers preferred access to nearby Shingle Creek Golf Club, so bring (or rent!) your clubs and stay an extra day to hit the course. Or, swing into Pointe Orlando, across the street from the hotel, for a plethora of shopping and dining options. We’ll see you there.
