The RCRA Practice Manual
Select a format
Focusing on the "cradle-to-grave" program for managing hazardous wastes under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), this updated edition of The RCRA Practice Manual is a comprehensive yet easy-to-use guide to an extraordinarily complex area of environmental law. This manual clearly explains this dynamic law, its background, regulatory structure and procedures, and the implications RCRA has for your client or company.
Chapters are written by an impressive roster of environmental lawyers who practice extensively in this area, and the authors offer practical suggestions and guidance to minimize the risk of penalty and to soften the blow when liability cannot be avoided. There have been numerous developments since the second edition, and every chapter has been updated to address the important new interpretations of RCRA. Among the new developments covered are decisions in cases involving the definition of hazardous waste, EPA over-filing, citizen suits, cost recovery, and preemption, while the regulatory developments include the EPA's revised definition of solid waste under RCRA and the Sierra Club's challenge, and the 2012 Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act.
The RCRA Practice Manual provides a practical examination of these critical aspects of the program:
- An overview of RCRA and its relationship to other laws
- The scope of hazardous waste
- Generators and transporters
- Treatment, storage, and disposal
- Land disposal and corrective action
- Underground storage tanks and nonhazardous waste
- Enforcement and implementation
