A Practical Guide for Hazardous Waste Management, Administration, and Compliance delivers in a concise fashion the information needed to establish, expand, administer, and audit a hazardous waste program. The presentation follows the logical steps necessary to establish a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Waste Management Program. The book focuses primarily on large and medium quantity generators. No other book or manual addresses the corporate hazardous waste manager's responsibilities as clearly, providing chapter-by-chapter guidance for the execution of his or her responsibilities. The Guide includes chapters on subjects rarely discussed in other publications, such as waste profiling, facility permitting, preparation of a waste analysis plan, recordkeeping, and training programs.

The book is clearly written with step-by-step instructions, including citations and forms. This excellent manual/textbook is indexed for easy reference and provides listings of additional subject area information sources.
