In 1980, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was passed in response to public concern about mismanagement of hazardous waste. Under RCRA, hazardous waste generators are required to follow certain steps guaranteeing the safe disposal of waste. RCRA Small Quantity Generators: A Commitment To The Future gives supervisors and employees an overview of the federal requirements. It covers:
- Introduction to RCRA
- Identifying hazardous waste
- Notification of hazardous waste activity
- Transportation procedures
- Waste minimization program
- Emergency plans.
Added features and benefits of DVD training include:
- A customizable PowerPoint presentation
- Informative training points and bonus material for refresher or training talks

- A printable Leader's Guide
- Resourceful web links to organizations such as OSHA, FEMA, NSC and the CDC, where viewers can download and print information on regulatory standards.
This handbook, written for small-quantity generators, discusses what is expected from both employers and workers to help protect the environment, and it stresses the importance of commitment in making a waste management program effective.
