EPA Form 8700-23
RCRA Hazardous Waste - Part A - Permit Application

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires anyone who owns or operates a facility where hazardous waste is treated, stored, or disposed to have a permit. RCRA establishes a procedure for obtaining interim status which allows existing facilities to continue operating until a final hazardous waste permit is issued.

This form and associated instructions are required for a Federal permit to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The form defines the processes to be used for treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes; the design capacity of such processes and the specific hazardous wastes to be handled at a facility. Interim status is also explained.
