McCoy's RCRA Review

August 2018



SAAs see shrinking benefits

In the mid-eighties, to ease compliance with full 90-/180-day requirements when waste is first collected, EPA implemented the satellite accumulation area (SAA) provisions. Since then, there had been no substantive changes in these regulations until the 2016 generator improvements rule. As a result of the latest changes, there are now fewer benefits to using these units compared to 90/180-day accumulation containers.   READ MORE

And since EPA has continued to provide new information, we would like to do the same. We’ve got an update on what’s been happening over the last month.   READ MORE

CCR tweaks finalized (partially)

EPA has issued a final rule that addresses recent court action in response to the promulgation of the 2015 coal combustion residue (CCR) rule. The final rule provides some breaks to facility owners who are managing these Bevill Amendment wastes. However, not all of the originally proposed revisions were finalized. We have a brief summary of EPA’s most recent rule.   READ MORE  


Craft beer and crafted RCRA

Join us on our home turf, in Denver, Colorado, October 1-5, 2018, for five days of RCRA. Our host hotel, the Renaissance Boulder Flatiron, sits near the base of the foothills, with gorgeous views and plenty to occupy you post-seminar. For you craft beer aficionados, take a trip along the Boulder Beer Trail, which features 29 breweries, wineries, and distilleries (with even more to be found in Denver). For cyclists, the hotel is about two miles away from the infamous Morgul-Bismark Loop, featured in the 1985 film American Flyers. Rent a bike and brave the grueling 13.36 mile loop. We’ll see you there.

Mining “urban forest” recycling bins

Paper manufacturers are increasingly looking toward cities to source their raw materials. Using the “urban forest” of city recycling bins to source their materials, paper plants can make one ton of 100% recycled paper while saving the equivalent of 17 trees. Learn more.


Sustainable paper’s secret: Biogas

What’s the key to the sustainable production of 100% recycled paper? For manufacturer Rolland, it’s biogas, harvested from a nearby landfill. The gas is used to power Rolland’s paper plant and has reduced the factory’s CO2 emissions by 62%. Read more about the power of biogas.
