  1. 0 Votes

    RCRA was enacted in 1976 to protect human health and the environment by reducing hazardous waste. It defines hazardous waste as a solid waste or combination of solid wastes, which may cause or contribute to mortality or severe illness; or pose harm to humans or environment if not managed. RCRA gave the EPA authority to manage waste from cradle to grave. There are three subtitles that deal specifically with solid waste, hazardous waste and underground storage units.
