RCRA turns 40

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) turns 40 this year, with the original law signed on October 21, 1976. That’s 40 years of working to protect the health of communities by promoting resource conservation and implementing safe waste management practices to ensure a cleaner environment for future generations.

Staying aware of these issues is important for everyone. Did you know about our ECATTS’ RCRA Annual Refresher Courses? We offer multiple awareness courses focusing on RCRA’s important issues such as HAZMAT Regulations, Environmental Laws & Liability, Hazardous Properties, Hazardous Waste, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and Standards Applicable to Generators.

For more information on these courses, check out our full training catalog and visit our website now.

EPA Challenges hotels with new Water Saving Campaign

Check out this News Release from the EPA. Not only is this a great challenge, but it’s a great way to spread awareness on water savings and sustainability:

“EPA Launches WaterSense H2Otel Challenge to Encourage Water Savings

National awareness campaign helps hotels save water and money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today launched the WaterSense H2Otel Challenge as a way for agency partners and other organizations to encourage hotels to use best management practices that will save water and money, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. 

“Hotels that reduce their water use will not only help their community save precious resources, but can gain a competitive edge in today’s green marketplace,” said Nancy Stoner, acting assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Water. “Since 2006, WaterSense has helped Americans save more than 487 billion gallons of water, and now we’re building on that success to help hotels take their sustainability efforts to the next level.”

From New York City’s Times Square to the Las Vegas strip, hotels across the country will take a pledge to “ACT”—assess, change, and track their water use in the following ways:

– Assess water use and savings opportunities throughout the hotel.

– Change products and processes to more water-efficient models and methods.

– Track water reduction progress before and after incorporating best management practices.

Caesars Entertainment is the first company to sign up for the H2Otel Challenge…”
