The Guidance Manual for the Classification of Solid Waste Disposal Facilities assists States in evaluating existing solid waste disposal facilities. Evaluations are made to identify those facilities which do not comply with the 'Criteria for classification of Solid Waste Disposal Facilities and Practices' (the Criteria). As defined by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976, facilities which do not comply with these Criteria are 'open dumps'. Those facilities that are evaluated by the States and found not to comply with the Criteria will be reported to the Environmental Protection Agency and published in the Open Dump Inventory. The Criteria provide minimum national standards for the protection of health and the environment from adverse effects resulting from solid waste disposal. The manual provides technical guidance on setting priorities for facility evaluations and on determining whether a particular facility violates the Criteria.
