Unit II presents key attributes of solid and hazardous waste. There are laws that an environmental professional can use to determine if a waste is solid or hazardous. Key issues are addressed in the required unit resources concerning exposure to toxicity used in hazardous waste determination as well as the interplay between industry and regulators.
Now, consider this: You are an environmentalist presenting a continuing education seminar to environmental professionals, and you want to drive home several concerns on solid and hazardous waste. Create a PowerPoint presentation. Your presentation should address the following:
- key attributes of solid and hazardous waste,
- Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) definitions,
- the role of risk assessment, and
- the interplay of industry interests versus regulatory protections.
Feel free to be creative. You are allowed to utilize PowerPoint’s features to create charts, graphics, and images. The notes section for your presentation is not required.
Your PowerPoint presentation must be at least 15 slides in length and will include a title slide and reference slide (title and reference slides do not count toward the minimum slide requirement). You must use a minimum of four references, two of which must be the two articles listed under Required Unit Resources. The other two references must be peer-reviewed sources from the CSU Online Library.
Because this assignment requires you to reference peer-reviewed articles, you may find it helpful to review the library’s tutorial on How to Find Peer-Reviewed Resources. (Transcript for How to Find Peer-Reviewed Resources video)
Adhere to APA guidelines when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used.
