Hazardous Waste Identification

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Can you determine whether a given waste is a hazardous waste regulated by EPA under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) ? This course covers a very organized approach to answering just that question, starting with determining whether your waste is considered a “solid waste” under the RCRA regulations and moving on to determining if it fits one of the RCRA requirements for being a hazardous waste.

This course is intended primarily for environmental, civil, and chemical engineers. Someone completing this course will gain knowledge about procedures for determining whether a given waste is a RCRA hazardous waste.

In this course, you need to review the material in the course content file, consisting of the document, “Introduction to Hazardous Waste Identification” (EPA530-K-05-012). Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on the entire document.

Learning Objectives:

the fundamentals of the hazardous waste identification process

the definition of the term “solid waste” as used by RCRA

the definition of hazardous waste

how to identify listed hazardous wastes

how to identify characteristic hazardous wastes

interpretation of the ‘mixture’ and ‘derived-from’ rules
