That’s a lot of waste…

More than 36 million tons. That’s how much hazardous waste was generated via large quantity generators (LQGs) in 2017. EPA has released the 2017 Biennial Report based on EPA Form 8700-13 filings submitted by March 1, 2018. Waste generation and management information collected from LQGs and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities is included and allows the user to examine the statistics for each state and territory and drill down to individual sites managing hazardous waste. EPA has arranged the site to allow the data to be accessed by NAICS code, management methods, and hazardous waste type and properties. Data for sites that are recycling hazardous waste, as well as the quantity of hazardous waste recycled nationally and in each state, are also available for use by the regulated community, governing agencies, and the general public.

Experimental air purifier takes on smog

Preliminary research shows an experimental large-scale cleaning system can make a dent in combating poor air quality. The tower uses sunlight to heat air within a large greenhouse, causing air to rise through the tower where filters trap particles such as PM2.5. Learn more about how the tower operates.






Meet McCoy; Zach Langsley Norman, Operations Specialist

Zach Langsley Norman has been keeping our office humming for over three years now. He came to us from the world of music as Zach is a classically trained tuba player. The discipline of music has aptly prepped Zach for the discipline of operations and project management. Incidentally, Zach still owns and plays two, very large metal honking machines (a.k.a. tubas).

Born in San Francisco, California, Zach has an immutable love of Giants baseball. However, he can frequently be found at Denver's Coors Field, where his passion for MLB compels him to watch the Colorado Rockies play, well, anyone. Anywhere. Anyhow.

When Zach attends McCoy seminars and tradeshows, he’ll seek out the best craft breweries and restaurants. His favorite part of attending our seminars is soaking up the RCRA knowledge.
