Learn from the latest US EPA enforcement actions and avoid environmetnal compliance violations that cost these businesses over $1 million combined.
In this week’s EPA Enforcement Roundup, a midstream natural gas firm, an eyeglass lens manufacturer, and a packaging company face fines for noncompliance with EPA air, water, and chemical regulations.
EPA’s Generator Improvements Rule took effect on May 30, 2017. US states have 1 to 2 years from that date to adopt updates to the hazardous waste regulations. EPA has made available a list on its website with relatively up-to-date information regarding states’ plans to adopt the Generator Improvements Rule.
The “derived-from” rule—found at 40 CFR 262.3(c)(2)(i)—states that, unless excluded, a waste generated from the treatment, storage, or disposal of a listed hazardous waste is also a hazardous waste. The derived-from rule intends to prevent generators and TSDFs from circumventing the land disposal restriction requirements that apply to a waste the moment it’s generated.
Hazardous wastes that do not require a manifest under the Federal RCRA program are not hazardous wastes in US DOT’s eyes. Does this mean that you can ignore DOT’s 49 CFR hazmat rules when shipping a non-RCRA hazardous waste? Not exactly.

When US EPA introduced the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the hazardous waste management standards included
reduced requirements for some large-volume wastes. After studying the hazards of wastes in oil and gas exploration and production
(E&P) operations, as directed by the US Congress, EPA determined regulation of these wastes under RCRA was not warranted. Therefore,
many oil and gas E&P wastes are excluded from the RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste management standards.
