Hazardous Waste Management Services Hazardous waste treatment and disposal is one of the most rapidly developing areas of environmental engineering. Hazardous waste management is closely regulated by the EPA under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). In addition, federal, state, and local regulations require waste tracking systems, appropriate waste treatment and disposal, and management programs that reduce waste through industrial process changes.
