Complying with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act's (RCRA) hazardous waste requirements requires retailers to understand the federal requirements as well as the variations in state requirements.

The overview provided in this table is for informational purposes only. Because of the summary nature of the table, it cannot capture all the nuances of the relevant regulations. It may therefore be important to consult the regulations directly and/or to seek legal advice on particular issues as they may arise.
