New Guide for Using Solvents

New Guide for Using Solvents

Sep 14, 2016
In June 2016 EPA published a new guide, Solvents in the Workplace: How to Determine if they Are Hazardous Waste.  The purpose of the guide is to make people who use and discard solvents aware of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste regulations and assist them in making correct hazardous waste determinations for solvents.
If you use solvents in your workplace this guide can help you:
  • Understand the RCRA hazardous waste rules.
  • Improve your understanding of the RCRA hazardous waste regulations associated with solvents.
  • Characterize and determine if your waste solvents are classified as hazardous wastes subject to RCRA regulations.
  • Answer commonly asked questions about solvents and RCRA.
