New EPA Rule on Solid and Hazardous Waste: Updated Compliance With 83 Fed. Reg. 24664
Navigating the New Regulatory Framework for the Treatment, Storage, and Disposal of Solid and Hazardous Waste
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the implications of the EPA’s revised definition of “solid waste” and the new regulatory framework for recycling hazardous secondary materials under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The panel will walk environmental lawyers through the changes contained in the final rule promulgated by the EPA earlier this year, the underlying D.C. Circuit decision which gave rise to the rule change, and recommendations for counsel in light of the shift.
- Overview of May 30, 2018 rule change
- Defining solid waste
- Defining hazardous waste
- Underlying litigation and appeal
- Facts and parties
- New compliance
The panel will review these and other high priority issues:
- How does the EPA’s May 30, 2018 rule change compare to the 2015 RCRA updates?
- What impact will the new rules have on compliance at the state level?
- Do the new EPA rules have any implications for verified recyclers with multistate locations?
