McCoy's RCRA Review

November 2018



CCR rules in reverse

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a decision vacating portions of EPA’s current coal combustion residues (CCR) rule for not being stringent enough. Because of this, the agency will likely need to forgo its current two-phase relaxation of CCR regs and instead reverse course to strengthen regulatory requirements. Additionally, states regulators that are crafting their own CCR programs are now faced with significant uncertainty.   READ MORE

IKEA’s space travel inspiration

This year, Ikea developed a new line of lightweight, minimalist, and creatively designed furniture made of lightweight veneer constructed from “wood and waste.” The material is rolled to form strong, hollow tubes which can then be joined together in any way imaginable with special connector pieces. The Rumtid collection was developed in conjunction with NASA and Lund University School of Industrial Design. The line includes air purifiers and terrariums and will be available in 2020.




ID your BB equipment

Did you know there is a leak detection and repair (LDAR) program in RCRA just like those in the CAA? If you operate hazardous waste equipment that is not controlled under the CAA, you may need to demonstrate compliance with Parts 264/265, Subpart BB. These standards are designed to prevent fugitive emissions, and compliance begins with the proper identification of your equipment. Because this is a national compliance initiative, it’s a good idea to identify all your BB equipment now.   READ MORE

Cookin’ up some RCRA rules

If you’ve checked out the latest regulatory agenda, you know that EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management has been busy working on some very interesting RCRA rules. These include a new program for managing hazardous pharmaceuticals as well as adding aerosol cans as universal waste. We’ve got a summary of what’s cooking in the agency’s kitchen.   READ MORE

Meet Scott Lyons, RCRA presenter

As the newest member of our presenting team, Scott brings over seven years of RCRA experience and a can-do attitude to our office.

His secret for enjoying McCoy training is to balance work and play. He makes time to see the local sites and museums—and he especially loves art museums. Next to that, he’ll be hunting down the best Sushi and Mexican restaurants nearby.

Yep. Scott’s a cultured guy, but he also likes adventure and would love to climb the Matterhorn. Until then, he and his wife are content to wrangle their three beautiful kids. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Scott and his family look forward to his mother’s homemade noodles. (Thanks, mom.)






e-Manifest for e-mergency personnel

If you manage emergency response and cleanup personnel, they may need authorization to sign e-manifests. EPA has released a new fact sheet to help explain how these personnel may be affected and what they must do to gain access to the e-manifest system. Five-page paper manifests may still be used to track wastes generated during emergency responses. But as with all other paper manifests, this information will ultimately be entered into the e-manifest system.


A million thanks

2018 has been a whirlwind with seminars, conferences—and hurricanes!

For the first time ever, we had to cancel a seminar. Hurricane Florence interrupted three days of our Virginia Beach seminar and a longtime customer needed to cancel one day of their custom seminar due to Hurricane Michael. Though the force of nature is powerful, we’re thankful our colleagues came through the storm, and we’re confident our communities will heal and rebuild.

It is in that spirit that we reconfirm our commitment to you—our customers. We're forever grateful for your support and business, and we wish you a safe and joyful Thanksgiving.
