To further elaborate on the three key points that the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act focuses on, this act is meant to protect individuals from harm or injury that is caused from the disposal of waste. This act also encourages individual to reuse resources by recycling. Additionally, waste that has been improperly stored or spills should be cleaned up, according to the act.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act is an amendment of an earlier act from 1965; the Solid Waste Disposal Act. This act was created in order to create a management system with regulations regarding waste. The Hazardous and Solid Wastes Amendment Act was added in 1984 and the law was expanded more in 1986.
