Beyond the "Grave": Getting LDRs RightThe RCRA hazardous waste rules regulate hazardous wastes from “cradle-to-grave.” But as generators, our responsibilities for compliance actually go beyond the grave. When you send waste off for disposal, it pays to know for sure that you’ve given your treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF) the information they will need to properly lay your waste to rest.
Choosing the Right LDR Paperwork for Your Hazardous WastesIf your site generates hazardous wastes, you will likely deal with Land Disposal Restrictions (LDRs) at some point. In a nutshell, hazardous waste may not be placed in a landfill or surface impoundment until it has been treated to make it safer for the environment. Because these hazardous wastes will sit in landfills for long periods of time, it's critical that the hazardous constituents in the waste are at a safe level before disposal...
RCRA Hazardous Waste ID in 3 Steps: TrichloroethyleneIn order to dispose of any RCRA hazardous waste, generators must assign the proper “waste codes.” RCRA wastes codes are alphanumeric indicators that provide specific information about how a waste should be treated to make it safe for disposal. Assigning waste codes is a complex—and absolutely crucial—part of managing hazardous waste...
Treatment Standards for Hazardous Waste DebrisIn the RCRA "cradle-to-grave" management system for hazardous waste, the "grave" refers to one of three options: useful recycling, diversion to wastewater treatment discharge, or permanent disposal in a landfill or via incinerator. To dispose of hazardous waste in a landfill, generators must first ensure the waste is treated to reduce the concentration and mobility of hazardous constituents. The rules for treating hazardous waste to acceptable levels before disposal are known as land disposal restrictions (LDRs) and can be found at 40 CFR Part 268...
Using Lab Packs for Chemical ShipmentsLaboratories, universities, medical facilities, and warehouses use and generate many different chemical substances. Sometimes these chemicals go unused—they may be out of date, off-specification, or simply no longer needed. To protect employees from potential hazards...
Management Strategies for Using RCRA ExclusionsAt first glance, managing hazardous waste in a way that relieves the generator from some RCRA regulations may seem very appealing. In some cases though, these management strategies may not provide as much relief as initially believed and may make subsequent management decisions even more difficult. One scenario that raises this challenge is the EPA’s exclusion for certain de-characterized hazardous wastes...
Understanding Derived-from Rule ExclusionsUnder the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), solid waste generated from the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste remains hazardous waste unless excluded elsewhere in the regulations. This is known as the “derived-from” rule and is designed to ensure that wastes that are treated, but which may still pose a threat to human health or the environment, do not fall through the cracks of RCRA regulation...
Identifying Underlying Hazardous Constituents (UHCs)One of the most confusing aspects of the land disposal restrictions is the determination of underlying hazardous constituents (UHCs). UHCs are trace amounts of hazardous chemicals (listed in 40 CFR 268.48) found in some hazardous wastes that do not in and of themselves cause the waste to be hazardous, but must be treated before the waste is deposited in a landfill. Due to a convoluted legal history, pre-disposal treatment for UHCs is...

The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.

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.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!
Hazmat Shipping Professional
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.
EH&S Facility Maintenance & Security Manager
Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.
Hazardous Waste Professional
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
