RCRA Hazardous Waste
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), enacted in 1976, is the principal Federal law in the United States governing the disposal of solid waste and hazardous waste, i.e. RCRA Hazardous Waste Management
Congress enacted RCRA to address the increasing problems the nation faced from its growing volume of municipal and industrial waste. RCRA, which amended the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965, set national goals for:
- Protecting human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste disposal.
- Conserving energy and natural resources.
- Reducing the amount of waste generated.
- Ensuring that wastes are managed in an environmentally-sound manner.
RCRA Training & RCRA Refresher - Course Descriptions:
RCRA Refresher - 8 Hour
Our RCRA refresher course is designed for professionals who want to maximize their compliance efforts for safety in the workplace. We will cover various types of hazardous waste that may occur at work sites and suggests precautions and protective measures to reduce or eliminate these hazards.
Throughout the RCRA Training course, we will examine the federal Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA), as well as the role of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the role of the individual states in controlling hazardous waste. We will learn how to comply with the RCRA program, which the EPA has developed to manage hazardous wastes from "cradle to grave," i.e., from the time it is generated to its ultimate disposal.
Objectives of RCRA Refresher:
At the end of the course, the student will be able to:
- Explain the importance of RCRA regulations in managing hazardous wastes
- Describe the standards used for different types of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities
- Implement hazardous waste management systems to achieve and maintain compliance
- Discuss the financial assurance requirements for corrective actions under RCRA
- Discuss a manifest system including discrepancies, unmanifested waste, and operating records
- Identify requirements for the monitoring, recordkeeping, and closure procedures of hazardous waste
- Properly identify hazardous wastes according to RCRA regulations
- Discuss the elements of a waste management system for municipal solid waste and industrial waste
- 2: Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs)
- 6: Hazardous Waste Management Plan (HWMP)
- 7: Hazardous Waste Identification
- 8: Municipal and Industrial Solid Waste
RCRA: What the Law Requires
This RCRA Training course explains the history of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), its structure and its key elements that provide the framework for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) comprehensive waste management program. The course discusses the specific requirements of various types of facilities that treat, store, transport or dispose of hazardous waste.
RCRA in Day to Day Operations
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is designed to track hazardous waste from cradle to grave. Under RCRA, hazardous waste generators are the first link in the cradle-to-grave hazardous waste management system.
This RCRA Training course covers RCRA regulations relating to generators, containers, and hazardous waste management plan (HWMP). The goal of HWMP is to handle hazardous waste in a safe, efficient, and environmentally sound manner and to comply with RCRA regulations.
