EPA's Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery - Beyond RCRA: Prospects for Waste and Materials Management in the Year 2020; Final White Paper
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state environmental agencies developed this white paper jointly. It aims to open and inspire dialogue on what the future could hold for the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) program in 20 years. The paper identifies a number of trends that could affect the future of waste and materials management, resource conservation, and human and environmental health. The paper also suggests certain general strategies and tools that might be used to build a new vision for the future of the RCRA program. While the paper is intended to stimulate thought and discussion about the future of RCRA, it is not a statement of any formal EPA or state agency policy.
