  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently published the final Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, which amends hazardous waste regulations under the Resource, Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The final version, published in November 2016, is largely the same as the version EPA proposed in August, with only a handful of minor changes. According to EPA, its “primary intent ... is to foster improved compliance by hazardous waste generators in the identification and management of the hazardous waste they generate and, as a result, improve protection of human health and the environment.”
