Frequent Questions

What is the duration of a RCRA permit?

RCRA permits are effective for a fixed, 10-year maximum term; however, EPA can issue a permit for less than the allowable term (40 CFR Section 270.50). Limiting permit duration provides a means for EPA to periodically review facilities, so that EPA can update facility requirements to reflect the current hazardous waste management practices.
