The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted as an amendment to the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965, and is a combination of the first solid waste statutes and all subsequent amendments.RCRA is a complex area, and the misinterpretation of its requirements goes to the heart of environmental compliance and protection. Problems may arise that cause major delays in processing permits and modifications, resulting in unnecessary costs not only for those seeking a permit, but also for the permitting authorities. The handbook provides a comprehensive, peer-reviewed overview of the substantive permitting requirements for treatment, storage, and disposal facilities and incorporates relevant legal research by identifying major administrative, federal, and state court decisions.
