McCoy's RCRA Review

October 2018

RCRA Online 2.0

EPA has revamped their RCRA Online database to provide an updated look and streamlined experience. While the guidance documents have not changed, the URLs are now a simplified format containing the RO document number. The old RCRA Online website is fading into history, so now is the time to update your links and bookmarks.   READ MORE

How-tos for household pharma takebacks

Household pharmaceutical wastes are not subject to RCRA, but they may be dangerous none the less. Mismanaged, unwanted pharmaceuticals can be, and are, abused by people and released into the environment. To help prevent this, DEA and law enforcement agencies have programs for the safe collection of these unwanted pharmaceuticals. EPA has provided guidance on how law enforcement can manage this process.   READ MORE

Meet the team: Jeff Watt, Logistics Specialist

Hailing from Michigan, Jeff Watt joined McCoy about a year ago. When’s he’s not on the job, you’ll find him hiking or trail running on Green Mountain. At home, Jeff lives with his wife Sara, their rambunctious mutt, Pepper, and a cat who refused to be interviewed for this article.

With the NBA season around the corner, Jeff’s anticipation is palpable. He’s a huge fan of pro basketball, and grew up playing the game. With Halloween approaching, we assumed Jeff would dress in his NBA finest, but instead he chose Waldo so he can go undercover and travel the world.

Jeff's advice to maximize value when you come to a McCoy seminar? Just follow these simple steps. 1. Get to know our presenters during the breaks. 2. Find the best Mexican and BBQ restaurants nearby. 3. Watch Basketball 4. Find a nearby trail and immerse yourself in nature for an evening.






Airbag guidance glossed up

If you are in the auto industry, you will likely have to manage airbags at some point. What do you do when you make the decision to discard some? Are they solid waste? Are they hazardous? What if you are dealing with recalled Takata brand airbags? EPA has issued some clarifying guidance that summarizes the agency’s position on the regulatory status of these materials.   READ MORE  


Engineered by nature

Inspired by biological materials such as bone, spider silk and wood, Swiss scientists have developed a new 3-D printing material made from recycled liquid-crystal polymer. The new material is stronger than other available 3-D printing polymers, uses less energy and is recyclable.


Las Vegas, naturally

Join McCoy in Las Vegas, Nevada for our final 5-Day seminar of the year. We’ll be at the Orleans Hotel, located just a few miles from the infamous Las Vegas Strip. After your training, explore all that Las Vegas has to offer, like a steak on Top of the World. If the city isn’t what you’re looking for, take a short drive out to Red Rocks Canyon park, with stunning views of the Mojave desert and hiking and biking galore. We’ll see you there.
