About this book

From the Reviews of the Previous Editions: "...recommended as a readable reference to the large complex world of hazardous waste regulation." - Environmental Protection "...presented in a very readable and understandable format." - The Hazardous Waste Consultant "...a valuable reference tool because it is easy to use, and includes clear, concise discussions." - Bowker's Legal Publishing Review The transportation of hazardous materials and disposal have become immense environmental concerns. As a result a number of government agencies have constructed regulation for manufacturers to follow, which are often confusing and written in complex legal terminologies. This new edition of a successful publication is designed to help professionals from all disciplines understand the national hazardous waste regulatory program. Available in both print and CD-ROM formats, the work presents the often complex and hazy material in a straightforward and lucid manner.
