Frequent Questions

How many facilities are subject to cleanup under RCRA?

Currently, EPA believes that there are over 6,500 facilities subject to RCRA corrective action statutory authorities. Of these, approximately 3,800 facilities have corrective action already underway or will need to implement corrective action as part of the process to obtain a permit to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste. EPA refers to these 3,800 facilities as the "corrective action workload." To help prioritize resources further, EPA established specific short-term goals for 1,714 facilities referred to as the RCRA Cleanup Baseline.
