McCoy's RCRA Review

June 2018



Ruling results in revised DSW regs

EPA’s definition of solid waste (DSW) rule has been the subject of several court challenges over the years. In response to the latest ruling, EPA has issued revisions to its 2015 DSW reclamation exclusions and definition of legitimate recycling. The May 30, 2018 final rule implements the DC Circuit Court’s vacatur of certain 2015 DSW regulations and reinstatement of 2008 language.   READ MORE  


Sushi in Seattle

Seattle, Washington is up next for McCoy, June 18-22, 2018. We’ll spend the week diving deep into the details of RCRA at the Crowne Plaza Seattle Downtown, located in the center of this bustling tech metropolis. After a day of discussing the regs, take a short half-mile stroll down to the Seattle Art Museum, open late on Thursdays. Or, treat yourself to some of the World’s best sushi, at Sushi Kashiba, run by a former apprentice of sushi master Jiro Ono, and located in the Pike Place market. Join us.

Are your HW units air compliant?

One of EPA’s current national enforcement initiatives is to reduce air emissions from hazardous waste management units. Based on the results of recent inspections, EPA has released a compliance advisory providing a list of common noncompliance with the Subparts AA/BB/CC air emission regs. Before your inspector shows up, check out if these concerns might apply to you.   READ MORE  


Palacio del RCRA

Join us at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in the heart of San Antonio, Texas, July 16-20, 2018, for a week of RCRA training.

Investing in the future, one tree at a time

With more and more customers demanding sustainability solutions, corporations are looking for ways to offer eco-conscious options. The Conservation Fund provides conservation projects across the country. Follow their endeavor at the Marais des Cygnes National Forest in Kansas and learn more about the Fund, the blue chip companies supporting their efforts, and how you can help.


A new kind of battery

Imagine a battery where the energy is stored as liquid. UK-based Highview Power is doing just that. The new Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) system stores hypercooled ambient air in liquid form, which can later be pumped through a heat exchanger to revert to its gaseous state to turn a turbine. This system has recently been added to the grid in the UK, and can be used to power 5,000 homes for up to three hours.




Baseball, Boston, and RCRA

Our next refresher takes us to Boston, Massachusetts, July 31-August 1, 2018. Sitting on the banks of the Charles River, the Royal Sonesta Boston is a beautiful place to soak up RCRA. This class takes two fast-paced days to deliver almost all the content of McCoy’s 5-Day seminar, so you’ll get a full dose of RCRA. After your training, head to Fenway Park, just two miles from the hotel, to catch a Red Sox game. They’ll take on the Yankees on August 1. Or, take a quick trip over to Harvard Square for shopping and dining. We’ll see you there.
