Does you waste contain HOC? If so your boss might be spendy wisely, EPA fines are pretty spendy.
The law allows you to collect the fine if the EPA does not assess the fine for a violation.
There are firms around the country that do this full time.
They look for know violations, contact EPA, if EPA does not cite the owner,then the firm files suit and they get to keep the fine.
I had some training in this field as my employer generated quantities ( thousands of gallons a week) of hazmat and my dept had to handle, store, and ship it.
IF you ever get a letter inviting you to an EPA party, look and see who else is invited, and hope their pockets are deeper than yours, because he who can pay will pay.
