On August 24, 1988, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed substantial revisions to Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). In most states the proposed revision to Subtitle D will have a substantial effect upon the state's solid waste regulations. However, in New Jersey these proposals are not expected to cause any significant concern. This paper addresses the differences between the proposed RCRA amendments and the existing New Jersey Solid Waste Regulations and shows that the impact from these proposed RCRA changes will have little effect upon existing and proposed landfills for New Jersey.
