Here is your new handbook full of information and guidance necessary to understand and comply with the myriad and complex hazardous waste regulations. This handbook explains the regulations regarding identification and listing of hazardous wastes, walks the reader through the three determinations for all manufacturing firms, gives in-depth explanations of applicable standards, outlines the DOT standards applicable to shippers of hazardous wastes, presents a philosophical basis for corporate compliance, gives "how to" for actions and the paperwork necessary for such a program, and concludes with some practical information not commonly found in textbooks or regulations. This essential resource for personnel with waste management responsibilities at manufacturing firms should prove a valuable resource. This book will assist these practitioners in establishing or modifying regulatory compliance programs. This valuable new book helps you to reduce waste generation, segregate hazardous wastes, reuse on-site or off-site, recycle or reclaim, treat to reduce hazards, secure land disposal, follow regulatory standards, use best management practices, and establish or modify compliance programs.
