All, I recently had a conversation with a colleague from EPA concerning hazardous waste compliance for universities, and in our conversation I offered to post an email from him on this list-serve to tap into its collective knowledge (see his email below).
"I am in the process of developing a hazardous waste compliance assistance program for colleges and universities (truly any post-secondary learning institution). Congress asked us [EPA] to regulate the management of hazardous waste through the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). We've routinely done inspections and regrettably find that universities tend to have numerous challenges with waste identification and management. I'm hoping your professional experience in both investigations and education (both as an educator and for the American Chemical Society) can help me find a more effective path than what we have pursued in the past."
