What is a “manufactured article”?

If you’re trying to determine whether an unused device is a P/U-listed commercial chemical product or an unlisted manufactured article, EPA has issued some new guidance to clarify this distinction. We’ve got details.   READ MORE  






Las Vegas, in a flash

Our next Refresher seminar will be in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 31-June 1, 2017 at the Orleans Hotel. This fast-paced course is designed for RCRA veterans; it has nearly all of the content of our 5-day seminar packed in to two lightning-quick days of training. Get in, get out, and get back to work in a flash. After your training, take the hotel’s free shuttle to The Chandelier, an extravagant three-story bar in the heart of the Cosmopolitan Resort Hotel. We’ll see you there.

In response to Executive Order 13777, EPA is evaluating its existing regulations to identify those that could be repealed, replaced, or modified to make them less burdensome. The agency is accepting public input as part of this evaluation.   READ MORE  




Giving back to STEM education

As professional educators (and self-professed science nerds), we support STEM programs in schools across the country. We’ve recently contributed to AQTreks, a Colorado-based company striving to get a two-week air quality monitoring program in science classrooms across the country. Learn more about AQTreks’ innovative program.




New scrap metal guidance

Hip town, cool training

Join McCoy in Portland, Oregon for our next 5-day seminar, June 19-23, 2017. Our host hotel, the Benson, offers luxurious accommodations in the heart of downtown. The city is teeming with cool brew-pubs and hip hangouts. After your training, head one-and-a-half miles across the river to visit the “casually threatening” Rimsky-Korsakoffee House, where you can experience some of the best coffee and desserts in town (it’s cash only and opens at 7:00PM each night). Or, check out Hair of the Dog, one of the city’s many craft breweries, only one mile away from the hotel. Sign up today.
