Specific Provisions

The RCRA provides for a manifest system, regulated wastes, regulating hazardous wastes, releases and ground water monitoring, closure, and underground storage tanks.

The Manifest System

The RCRA requires waste to be monitored from its generation to its ultimate disposal. Thus, the RCRA is commonly referred to as a cradle-to-grave statute. A manifest is a written description of a container's contents, source, and destination. The manifest must accompany the waste at all times.12 This information must also be made available to the regulatory authorities, enabling them to monitor waste generation, shipment, and disposal.

Regulated Wastes

A person's status under the RCRA depends upon the type of waste he is handling. The RCRA regulates solid waste and hazardous waste, both of which are defined by the statute and its regulations.
