The Superfund Recycling Equity Act (SREA), which ISRI fought to get enacted into law in 1999, provides an exemption for scrap recyclers from Superfund liability. Superfund was enacted in 1980 to help clean up releases of hazardous substances into the environment in situations where the initial polluter is bankrupt or otherwise unable to pay for the entire cleanup. Until SREA, because of a misinterpretation of the law, recyclers could be held liable as their products were incorrectly deemed waste. Taking reasonable care will help protect your business from Superfund liability. To get the SREA exemption, a recycler must show, among other things, which it inquired as to whether a customer is in compliance with applicable environmental laws.
ISRI makes it easier for members to get the reasonable care due diligence required to get under the SREA protective shield. Join the ISRI SREA Program leadership for a webinar on reading, understanding, and interpreting SREA reports.
As a result of participating in the webinar, members should be able to make well-informed business decisions regarding environmental compliance and potential business partners through a comprehensive understanding of the format and information included in an ISRI SREA report.
