Texas Metal Fabricator Cited for Hazardous & Industrial Waste Violations
TCEQ conducted its investigation between August 2019 and March 2020. As a result of the investigation, TCEQ alleges the company:
- Caused, suffered, allowed, or permitted the unauthorized disposal of industrial solid waste (ISW).
- Failed to conduct hazardous waste determinations and waste classifications.
The metal manufacturer is required to implement procedures to prevent future unauthorized discharges of ISW, properly remove and dispose of contaminated soil, and conduct waste determinations and classifications for the site’s cutting and hydraulic fluids.
The company specializes in metal manufacturing for various industries, including oil and gas, aerospace, mining, and telecommunication.
Major RCRA Updates Coming to Texas in 2021–22Texas’ effort to adopt updated RCRA hazardous waste regulations hit a major milestone last month, when TCEQ announced a schedule of deadlines to propose and finalize new hazardous waste rules under Title 30 of the Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC).
Key RCRA changes in the forthcoming proposal include:
- EPA’s RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule.
- The Electronic Hazardous Waste Manifest (e-Manifest) Fee Rule.
- Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) and recycling provisions changes.
- New management standards for Pharmaceutical Hazardous Waste.
- The addition of aerosol cans to the universal waste program.

My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!

The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.
