EPA proposed to amend portions of the closure requirements under Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) applicable to owners and operators of certain types of hazardous waste land disposal facilities. The proposed amendments would allow, under limited circumstances, a landfill or surface impoundment to remain open after the final receipt of hazardous wastes in order to receive non-hazardous wastes in that unit. This proposed rule details the circumstances under which a unit may remain open to receive nonhazardous wastes and describes the conditions applicable to such units.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
