Working to safely manage and reduce hazardous waste in NC

Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Subtitle C is designed to control the management of hazardous waste from its generation to final disposition - from "cradle-to-grave." The focus of the RCRA hazardous waste rules is unlike other environmental regulations that focus on abating and/or reducing existing environmental threats. The intent is to prevent environmental threats.
