Major Goals of RCRA
  • Reduce wastes and provide for conservation of resources.
  • Protect human health and the environment from potential harm caused by improper waste disposal and from dangers posed by leaking underground storage tanks.
  • Management of Hazardous Waste from “Cradle-to-Grave”
solid waste
“Solid Waste”
  • Anything no longer needed or wanted
  • Regulatory term for garbage, trash or refuse
  • Can be liquids, contained gases or solids
  • Hazardous Wastes are a specific category of Solid Waste
hazardous waste generators
Hazardous Waste Generators
  • Obtain EPA generator ID number
  • Determine if waste is hazardous
  • Adhere to land disposal restrictions
  • Manifest waste shipments
  • Designate a transporter and a Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) that each possess an EPA ID number
  • Prepare and implement a contingency plan
  • Perform record keeping and reporting requirements
  • Pay all applicable fees
training requirements
Training Requirements
  • As documented in NJAC7:26-9.4(g) and 40CFR263.34(d)(5)(iii)
  • Hazardous waste generators must ensure that all employees are thoroughly familiar with proper waste handling and emergency procedures, relevant to their responsibilities during normal facility operations and emergencies.
  • Initial training with annual review
a hazardous waste
A Hazardous Waste
  • Any solid, liquid, semi-solid or contained gaseous material that is capable of posing a substantial present or potential hazard to human health, living organisms or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, disposed of or otherwise managed.
  • Failure to make a waste determination is a serious and common breach of the RCRA regulations

How to Determine if a Waste is Hazardous 2
  • Has been found to be fatal to humans in low doses.
  • In the absence of human toxicity data it has been shown in studies to:
    • Oral LD50 (rat): less than 50mg/kg
    • Inhalation LC50 (rat): less than 2 mg/L
    • Dermal LD50 (rabbit): less than 200 mg/kg
  • Capable of causing or significantly contributing to an increase in serious irreversible or incapacitating reversible, illness.

HAZARDOUS WASTE CONTAINER/STORAGE AREA INSPECTION LOG Location

1Inspections must be performed weekly and the Inspection Log must be retained for a period of three years.

2If all conditions are OK place a check in that section. If conditions were not OK make a note in that section and describe corrective action taken (use additional sheets as necessary).

3Consult MSDS for proper storage conditions.

4Stockton is currently a SQG; hazardous waste must not be stored for longer than 180 days or 6 months

5Containment system must have sufficient capacity to contain 10% of the volume of containers or the volume of the largest container, whichever is greater.
