Illinois the 20th State to Adopt RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements
All 50 states MUST adopt the elements of the “Generator Improvements Rule” that are more stringent than the previous rules.
Join Lion in Chicago to learn the new RCRA rules when the RCRA Hazardous Waste Management Workshop comes to the Windy City on April 8–9, 2019.
RCRA compliance requirements that are more stringent under the Generator Improvements Rule, which all states must adopt, include:
- Adding a re-notification requirement for small quantity generators.
- New standards for marking hazardous waste containers.
- Expanded contingency planning requirements.
- New allowance for consolidating waste from very small quantity generators (VSQGs).
- Reliefs for episodic hazardous waste generation events like a lab cleanout, spill, etc.
- A streamlined process for waivers to the “50-foot rule” for ignitable wastes.
Check the map below to see if your state has adopted the RCRA Generator Improvements Rule yet.

This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.

The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
Tom Bush, Jr.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
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.
These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
EHS & Facility Engineer
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
