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.

Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
Process & Resource Administrator
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!
Senior Environmental Engineer
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
