Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA) Hazardous/Universal Waste Training Courses

Our RCRA training satisfies the detailed requirements imposed by EPA and individual states (40 CFR Parts 262, 265 and 273). The training addresses these legal requirements in an entertaining format that everyone understands.

“The objectives of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) are to protect human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste disposal, to conserve energy and natural resources, to reduce the amount of waste generated, and to ensure that wastes are managed in an environmentally sound manner.”
