Hazardous Waste Determinations
A step by step review of how to conduct a hazardous waste determination
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) sets a framework for the proper management of hazardous waste. Within this regulatory program, hazardous waste is managed from "cradle to grave" meaning from the time it is created, while it is transported, treated, and stored, and until its ultimate disposal.
The generator of hazardous waste bears many responsibilities under RCRA including the requirement to make an accurate determination as to whether its solid waste is a hazardous waste in order to ensure wastes are properly managed under the cradle to grave system.
With this in mind, this course is intended to allow you a better understanding of:
- What is a hazardous waste determination
- What are the steps of completing a hazardous waste determination
- What documentation must be maintained
Course Time: Approximately 120 minutes
