Hazardous or Not Under RCRA: How to Determine Haz Waste Compliance Obligations Under the EPA’s Final Rule, Effective May 30, 2017
Live Webinar: Wednesday, April 5, 2017
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific
ALERT: The EPA’s final hazardous waste generator regulations, which contain over 60 changes, go into effect May 30, 2017. The final rule creates new and expanded compliance obligations for hazardous waste generators and, in some cases, attempts to reduce a generator’s regulatory burden by providing greater flexibility in how facilities and employees manage their hazardous waste.
As a hazardous waste generator, your organization is responsible for determining whether or not waste is hazardous. You must properly identify, manage, and document the full cycle of the waste until it is disposed of or recycled. Finally, if your organization’s waste is regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), it is critical to know which properties make something hazardous and how to tell if the waste is regulated under RCRA.
Join us on April 5 for an in-depth webinar led by environmental compliance attorney Sherry Jackman and environmental consultant and auditor Michael Dudasko. They will cover the steps and strategies for determining what is and what is not considered hazardous waste under RCRA, and how to comply with applicable RCRA regulations and the final hazardous waste generator rule that’s taking effect May 30, 2017.
