RCRA provides for publication of an inventory of open dumps. The Act defines 'open dumps' as facilities which do not comply with EPA's Criteria for Classification of SW Disposal Facilities and Practices (40 CFR 257). To aid the States in satisfying the requirement that the solid waste management plan shall provide for the closing or upgrading of all existing open dumps within the State, EPA has funded State efforts to identify open dumps so that they can plan to provide for their closure or upgrading. In furtherance of this planning effort, the Act requires that EPA publish an inventory of open dumps. Publication of the inventory will serve to inform the Congress and the public of those facilities which the states have found to be open dumps.
