Hazardous Waste LDRs: Notice of Public Meeting, July 1-2, 1998
The Environmental Protection Agency's
(EPA's) Office of Solid Waste (name changed to Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery on January 18, 2009) held a public roundtable discussion on the
Agency's efforts to evaluate important aspects of and potentially improve
the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Land Disposal Restrictions
(LDR) Program. The purpose of the roundtable was to enable individuals who
have substantial experience in implementing the LDR Program to offer their
own evaluations and suggestions on possible improvements to the program.
EPA's overall goal in the LDR reinvention project is to examine the best
way to ensure the program is environmentally protective, less expensive,
more efficient and flexible, clearer to the public, and more enforceable.
The public was welcome to observe the discussions among participants and
will be afforded some opportunities to express their views. However, this
meeting was not intended to be a full public hearing.
