At the federal level, land disposal of non-hazardous solid waste is regulated primarily under the authority of Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). RCRA was enacted in 1976 to protect human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste disposal, conserve energy and natural resources, and reduce the amount of waste generated.
