The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), an amendment to the Solid Waste Disposal Act, was enacted in 1976 to address the huge volumes of municipal and industrial solid and hazardous waste generated nationwide. The law places controls on the generation, transportation, treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous wastes, as well as establishing a framework for the management of non-hazardous waste.
The goals of RCRA are as follows:
- Protect human health and the environment from the hazards posed by waste disposal;
- Conserve energy and natural resources through waste recycling and recovery;
- Reduce or eliminate, as expeditiously as possible, the amount of waste generated, including hazardous waste; and
- Ensure that wastes are managed in a manner that is protective to human health and the environment.
