The RCRA hazardous waste regulations allow generators to manage hazardous waste “at or near” the point where the waste initially accumulates. Called “satellite areas,” these areas are subject to specific requirements within the RCRA regulations. This guide covers the basics of how to safely, properly manage hazardous waste in a satellite area for large and small quantity generators.
