McCoy's RCRA Review

October 2017

Recalled airbags are…

With all the airbag recalls due to inflators, the question arises as to the RCRA status of these devices. EPA has considered many issues regarding the status of airbags that are being held and/or will be discarded. For example, did you know that undeployed airbags that have been installed in vehicles and are subsequently removed are considered “used” (i.e., spent materials).   READ MORE  




RCRA on the Great Lakes

We’ll be in Chicago, Illinois, for our next 5-Day RCRA seminar, October 23-27, 2017. Join us at the Doubletree Chicago North Shore, conveniently located in central Skokie. After your training, head downtown to the magnificent mile for an authentic Chicago experience. Or, chow down on authentic Chicago deep dish pizza at Pequod’s, just ten minutes away by car.

Thank you, attendees

In conjunction with our Denver 5-Day seminar, we hosted an open house at McCoy's World Headquarters in Lakewood, Colorado. We were joined by our attendees, their spouses, and some very special guests from the Raptor Education Foundation.

With hors d'oeuvres in hand, attendees were able to tour our offices and meet four magnificent raptors, including a fully-grown (5.5-ounce) screech owl, and a 36-year-old golden eagle.

We appreciate you, our customers, and all that you bring to our seminars. From all of us at McCoy, thank you.




Refreshing Houston
