This report has been completed in response to congressional requests for EPA to conduct a study on the effects of existing regulations on metal recovery of the Nation's waste, how metal recovery can be encouraged, and how these materials should be regulated to protect human health and the environment. Chapters include an introduction and overview to metal recovery of Hazardous Waste and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Hazardous Waste Regulation, report methodology and limitations, characterization of RCRA subtitle C metal-bearing hazardous wastes, RCRA subtitle regulations affecting metal recovery of hazardous waste, assessment of RCRA subtitle C regulation on metal recovery from hazardous waste in the United States, case studies of metal recovery operations subject to RCRA jurisdiction, assessment of U.S. balance of trade and strategic metals issues and their relationship to metal recovery of hazardous wastes, encouraging environmentally sound metal recovery. Appendices provide examples for source reduction in industries that generate metal-bearing hazardous waste and more specific information on hazards associated with metals.
