Solid and Hazardous Waste Management

 

The regulations promulgated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act or RCRA establish a very complex set of requirements for how solid wastes, and in particular hazardous wastes, are managed. Key for any facility that generates solid waste is making proper determination as to whether any of their wastes are hazardous, and how much hazardous waste is generated on a monthly basis.  The latter determines your generator status, which in turn determines the level of regulatory requirements that you must meet. Facilities that treat, store or dispose of hazardous waste must comply with an even more complex set of regulations and be permitted.  In addition to these federal requirements, your state may have additional requirements for the management , disposal and/or recycling of hazardous and non-hazardous solid wastes.

 

JAS Environmental can help you manage your solid and hazardous waste in a compliant fashion, including waste sampling and classification, determining generator status and identifying activities and recordkeeping requirements based on your status, making requisite notifications and reporting, and developing contingency plans, and permitting.

 

Spills plans are required under various federal and state laws for facilities that use or store certain types of hazardous materials, wastes or oil. Please visit our page on Federal and selected state spill planning requirements

 

JAS Environmental has prepared SPCC, SWPPP and RCRA contingency plans for numerous commercial and industrial facilities.  For facilities that fall under multiple planning requirements, JAS Environmental has also prepared Integrated Contingency Plans that address these requirements in a single plan.  JAS Environmental also offers on-site spill training custom tailored to your facility’s specific needs.
