Five Resilience Trends to Watch

Our manufacturing base, transportation, energy, and water supply systems are essential and highly valuable resources.

Take a look at these five adaptations and trends to watch in 2019 to protect our infrastructure.






New petroleum industry white paper released

Our latest white paper, “RCRA Compliance in the Petroleum Industry,” is available on our website. This guide breaks down the various petroleum-related RCRA issues you may face at your facility.

Meet McCoy; Rodger Goffredi, Senior Environmental Engineer

If you’ve attended a McCoy seminar, you’ve probably met Rodger Goffredi. In his twenty-third year with McCoy, Rodger is one of McCoy’s veteran presenters and editors of McCoy’s RCRA Unraveled. Around here, he’s known as the RCRApedia because of his deep knowledge of the program.

In his home life, Rodger and his wife Colleen have been married for over forty years and have six children. Rodger also has two beautiful grandchildren who call him “Pappy.” Pappy enjoys the comradery of family and the Goffredi’s keep the spark going with date night and spicy green chili at their favorite Mexican restaurant.

Rodger is the most disciplined person at McCoy with his health and fitness routine. At seminars, he’ll hit the gym and then find the best Thai restaurant nearby. Rodger’s favorite part of presenting is meeting our attendees and hearing your stories.




Used oil clarifications

From the largest manufacturing facilities to the smallest service centers, just about every site generates used oil. While the used oil regulations of Part 279 might not be particularly lengthy, there are some issues in those regs that you don’t necessarily find in other hazardous waste regulations. What happens when your used oil is mixed with a fuel? How do you manage your oil-soaked absorbents? We investigate these issues, so you don’t have to.   READ MORE
