When I hear poison and heavy metal in the same sentence, my mind first goes to the 80’s rockers who recorded the #1 hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Second, though, I think of the RCRA toxicity characteristic.
EPA has announced increased user fees to support its electronic hazardous waste manifest system in fiscal years 2020—21.
While hazardous waste generators can now create e-manifests, some logistical challenges remain that may make it difficult to move away from paper manifests. Here's what's holding some facilites up–and why making the switch as soon as possible is a smart management practice.
The characteristic of reactivity [40 CFR 261.23] is not just one characteristic; it’s a grouping of eight different properties and none of them have an empirical means of measurement. So how can generators identify reactive hazardous wastes to ensure safe storage and disposal?
California has unveiled a plan to adopt provisions from EPA’s 2016 Generator Improvements Rule into the state’s Title 22 hazardous waste regulations. The major EPA rulemaking overhauled the Federal hazardous waste management requirements, adding more stringent provisions as well as new reliefs for generators.
Overhauled requirements for managing hazardous waste pharmaceuticals (HWP) officially take effect on August 21, 2019.
A new recordkeeping requirement added in EPA's Generator Improvments Rule goes above and beyond what was traditionally required for large quantity generators. See the eight items that must be included in your contingency plan quick reference guide now required under 40 CFR 262.262(b).
When EPA creates new rules that are more stringent than previous regulations, as is the case with many of the updates in the landmark 2016 Generator Improvements Rule, all states must adopt the more-stringent provisions in order to maintain authorization to run their state program.
If I send my employee to a HAZWOPER training course, will it cover their annual RCRA hazardous waste personnel training?
