EPA Hazardous Waste Rule Workshop, March 7

EPA recently overhauled the hazardous waste generator regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to improve compliance and program effectiveness by making approximately 60 changes to the generator regulatory program. These changes include reorganizing the regulations, strengthening requirements where gaps exist, providing regulatory relief in certain situations, and clarifying many components of the existing regulations.

EPA is hosting a workshop to clarify and discuss these changes.  These changes were formulated with cooperation from states and the regulated community to improve this 30+ year old rule.  This workshop will discuss the recent changes and describe the following topics in detail:

  • Changes in the regulations;
  • Gaps in the regulations that were addressed in this rule;
  • Improved flexibility and cost-saving options in the new regulation;
  • Reorganization of the rule to make them user-friendly;
  • Technical corrections and deletions of obsolete references.
