Waste Management

R&W has helped numerous clients identify, characterize and properly manage specific waste streams from historical operations, ongoing operations and emergency cleanups. R&W provides site identification forms, training and compliance audits with Environmental Protection Agency Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations.

RCRA hazardous waste regulations can be vastly complicated. For example, gasoline-contaminated soil is exempt from RCRA regulations only if the soil is from cleaning up a leaking underground storage tank. So, depending on the contamination's source, other gasoline-contaminated soil (e.g., from a spill) may need to be managed under different regulations.

R&W has guided clients through the maze of regulations when evaluating the proper way to dispose solid and liquid waste.
