RCRA Hazardous Waste Part A Permit Application Instructions and Form Booklet
[EPA Form 8700-23]
This is the current version of the booklet. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires anyone who owns or operates a facility where hazardous waste is treated, stored, or disposed to have a permit. RCRA establishes a procedure for obtaining interim status which allows existing facilities to continue operating until a final hazardous waste permit is issued. This application is required for a Federal permit to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The instructions explain the process for obtaining a RCRA hazardous waste permit and how to complete the forms for the application. Interim status is also explained. The forms provide required information about a facility and the processes to be used for treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes, the design capacity of such processes, and the specific hazardous wastes to be handled at a facility.
