McCoy's RCRA Review

February 2017

Penalties take their annual leap

Last year, a new law required annual inflationary adjustments for RCRA civil penalties by January 15 of each year. Because last year was a catch-up year, the initial jumps were quite large. See how the penalties were affected this year.   READ MORE  




Waiting on a new prescription

Was EPA thinking about pharmaceuticals in the late seventies when they were writing the RCRA rules? At the manufacturing level, yes, but not at the retail and patient level. So how do we manage hazardous pharmaceutical wastes where RCRA wasn’t designed to work?   READ MORE  


Refresher in McCoy’s backyard

We’ll have home-field advantage for our first Refresher of 2017 in Denver, Colorado, March 21-22, 2017 at the Renaissance Boulder Flatiron. McCoy’s Refresher is perfect for RCRA veterans, with almost all the content in our 5-day seminar condensed into two fast-paced days, so you can get back to work in a flash. Or if you can stay longer for a mini-vacation, enjoy Colorado spring skiing with warm temps and clear skies. Join us.

Celebrating 40 years of RCRA

Can you believe RCRA is a Gen X-er? Yes, December 8, 2016 marked 40 years for RCRA, and the agency has a website memorializing the program’s milestones. Check out the 40th anniversary website to see a RCRA timeline, case studies, and EPA’s discussion about its path forward.




RCRA applicability to filters

Filter canisters do not enjoy the manufacturing process unit exemption from RCRA when 1) connected to manufacturing equipment that has been out of service for more than 90 days, or 2) disconnected from manufacturing equipment.   READ MORE

Tips for business travel

2017 is here, and what better way to kick things off than by attending a McCoy seminar. Our presenters are seasoned travelers, and they have a few helpful tips to make your trip more comfortable.

“Get to the airport early. Two hours before your flight departs is best. Don’t rent a car if you don’t have to because parking can be very expensive in some cities. Uber is great!” ~ Paul Gallagher

“Find the fitness center at your hotel and use it at least three times per week!” ~ Rodger Goffredi

“Take advantage of programs like Global Entry or Clear to speed through security lines.” ~ Brian Lindman
