Who Needs Hazardous Waste Training?

Facilities that manage hazardous waste must comply with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA, pronounced "rick-rah") regulations. RCRA provides stringent requirements for generating, storing, treating, and disposing of hazardous waste. Training is also mandatory for facility personnel. Training requirements are based on a site's generator status and waste streams. For more guidance, see below or view the Who Needs Hazardous Waste Training Video
