Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Alabama has adopted the federal accumulation time rules that allow generators to accumulate hazardous waste on-site without a permit for specific periods, including the March 2000 federal accumulation time standards that allow large quantity generators (LQGs) that generate wastewater treatment sludges from the metal finishing industry (i.e., EPA Waste F006) to accumulate F006 beyond the usual 90-day LQG limitation. The 2006 federal rules in connection with manifested shipments that have been returned to the generator are also included in the state rules. See the national section ACCUMULATION TIME to review the specific time periods applicable to each type of generator. In addition, Alabama has specific requirements for LQGs that wish to keep hazardous waste on-site for more than 90 days.

To review generator on-site hazardous waste storage requirements, see the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE STORAGE.

Administration and enforcement. ADEM's Industrial Hazardous Waste Branch administers and enforces the accumulation time rules in Alabama.
