Foley’s environmental attorneys can help you solve waste management problems under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and state law counterparts. We can help you address every aspect of waste management regulation, and our experience includes:
We can advise you on the complex process of waste determination, applicability of exemptions, compliance policies, and reduction of regulatory burdens.
Our attorneys can assist a permit team in obtaining or modifying RCRA permits. One aspect we can help you with includes carefully examining exemptions and operational changes which could eliminate the need for a permit. We also work on state waste management permits including controversial landfill projects with extensive public opposition.
Foley’s environmental team can guide you through all aspects of RCRA corrective action programs including negotiation of permits and orders and creating remediation programs using risk based approaches and allowing for transfer of impacted properties.
Our extensive experience in RCRA as civil, criminal and administrative enforcement actions will allow us to efficiently negotiate favorable settlements for your organization, often with substantial reductions in penalties.
We defend companies from citizen suits and imminent and substantial endangerment claims. Our experience allows us to work towards early settlement or dismissal of these cases.
