Texas Proposes Adopting New RCRA Hazardous Waste Rules
To maintain authorization for enforcing hazardous waste standards in the state, Texas periodically updates its hazardous waste rules to reflect changes to the Federal RCRA requirements.
New Solid Waste Exclusions for Generators in Texas
Texas will update its Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) to include changes to the Federal RCRA rules effective as of January 13, 2015. The updated DSW provides an expanded scope of exclusions for certain secondary materials. To the adopted EPA standards, Texas will add an exclusion from regulation as solid waste for certain steel slag.
Updates for e-Manifests and CRTs
Other changes to the Texas hazardous waste requirements in this action include authorizing the use of electronic manifest (e-Manifests). EPA established e-Manifest requirements in the Federal Register on February 7, 2014. In addition, Texas has proposed rule changes to revise certain provisions for export, reuse, and recycling of Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs), to match RCRA revisions completed in June 2014.
This is the second time this year that Texas will submit an authorization package to US EPA. In March, the state sent a package to adopt RCRA Rule Clusters XXI, XXII, and XXIII (including changes for managing solvent-contaminated rags or wipes), which EPA is currently reviewing.
The full proposal is available at TCEQ’s website.

I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
Hazardous Waste Professional
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

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.
