At the direction of the ASTSWMO Board of Directors, the ASTSWMO Hazardous Waste Subcommittee has evaluated the RCRA Subtitle C Program (hereafter referred to as “RCRA C” or “RCRA” in this report) administered by States to determine the nature and costs of implementing a complete and adequate Program. As a part of this effort, the Subcommittee and its Task Forces have identified the major components of the RCRA C Core Program, established a consistent methodology for collecting program implementation cost information, and collected detailed cost information from ten States as a pilot study to estimate the national cost of implementing the RCRA C Core Program. The RCRA C Core Program consists of permitting, remediation (closure, corrective action), compliance, enforcement, and program development activities.
