Public Involvement in RCRA

The regulated community that must understand and comply with RCRA and its regulations is a large, diverse group. It includes not only facilities typically thought of as hazardous waste generators, such as industrial manufacturers, but also government agencies and small businesses, such as a local dry cleaner generating small amounts of hazardous solvents, or a gas station with underground petroleum tanks.

RCRA contains extensive public participation and involvement provisions to facilitate public participation in the permitting, corrective action, and state authorization processes. U.S. EPA, consistent with the requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA), proactively involves the public every time the Agency issues a rulemaking that establishes or changes regulatory provisions. The RCRA program seeks to ensure that all segments of the population have an equal opportunity to participate in the regulatory process and equal access to regulatory information.
