Assessment Topic

Under the RCRA subtitle C regulations, hazardous waste generators must comply with a number of requirements regarding the handling, storage, reporting, transportation, and disposal of their hazardous waste. It is the Agency's understanding that numerous health care facilites are either unaware of how the hazardous waste regulations apply to pharmaceutical wastes or, even if there is knowledge of RCRA, they have problems with training the workers that are generating these wastes on how to manage hazardous wastes properly.
