Hazardous waste is a serious issue that poses a significant threat to both the environment and human health. To ensure the safe management of hazardous industrial waste, regulatory agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have established specific rules and regulations. In 1976, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted to create a framework for the proper management of hazardous waste. The responsibility of carrying out the “Cradle to Grave” program has been delegated to states in lieu of EPA requirements.
If you are generating hazardous waste at your industrial site, you must comply with the RCRA Subtitle C Regulation to obtain the necessary permits and ensure compliance.
